The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Fatty Baby Photos

Our good friend Suki, the cutest little pug I know and probably the prettiest in the whole of the universe, posted a game a week or so ago asking us to show our baby photos. Well, I have finally got around to posting mine!

Now as you may or may not know, I had another family before I came to live with mum and dad. A lady had reserved me from my breeders and came to collect me at 8 week. At about 13 weeks she took me back to my breeders saying I was "too much of a handful" and a real "Jekyll and Hyde", asleep one minute and running around the next. Erm, hello...I was a little puppy! Anyway, her loss was mine and mum and dad's gain. What I am rambling on about is that we have a big gap in cute puppy photos between when I left my breeders at Sherifs Airedales and when I returned to them to go home with mum and dad. Mum has made up for it since mind you!

Anyway, here I am at 1 day old with my tired but proud mum. I had 7 brothers. What a handful for mum! We are all named after cowboys which I think is pretty cool. That's why I am Sherifs Sundance Kid like in the film. I think I am more handsome than Robert Redford though, hehehe.

Here we are at 4 weeks old. Us Airedales look quite different when we're little to when we're fully grown. I think we look a bit like rottweiler puppies. Looks like we were getting plenty of food doesn't it, roly poly puppies that we were!


Here we are at 6 weeks, getting more handsome by the day, and having lost a teeny bit of our puppy fat. I think we must have been waiting for din dins in this photo. When I came to live with mum and dad I came with a bit of that stripy sheet as a comfort blanket.

Now there is the gap in photos while I was with my first owners....

.....and here I am on my first day with mum and dad on 1st September 2006. Wasn't I a fluffy little chap. I weighed about 9 kilos here compared with 22.5 kilos now.

You can see that I had a lot more black on my ears and face and down my back legs when I was little. Look how big my paws are too!


Here I am one week later. We went to our Airedale club fun day and I won my first rosette for "Best Trick". I did shake paw. I had learned it in just a week and beat a lot of grown up Airedales!

Here I am a week after that playing at mum and dad's friends house. I did a bit of gardening while I was there and ate a few flowers, oops. My cuteness got me off the hook though. We stayed there for 4 days and I was very well behaved apart from the plant chomping, no accidents on their nice new cream carpets or chewing their lovely leather sofa or anything!

Here I am at 5 months old. Aw, there's my crate. I really liked it, but I got too big to fit in there and I must admit, sneaking on the sofa once mum and dad have gone to bed is much comfier!

I was a scruffy little urchin wasn't I? I had forgotten how much puppy fuzz I had!


This was taken at 6 months just before my first Aire cut. As you can see, I had more or less grown into my paws by now!

And here I am after my Aire-do! That was in the days before mum decided she'd rather pull my hair out instead of taking me to the groomers to be clipped!

This photo coincides with me starting my blog, so from here on in my life is VERY well documented by paparazzi wannabe mum!

I hope you enjoyed looking at my puppy photos. It's been fun having a trip down memory lane!

Faya said...

Oh maintenant je comprends ! Déjà tout petit tu étais un clown ! Comme tu es mignon....encore et toujours. C'est vrai que petits nous sommes très différents : mon éleveur disait qu'on aurait pu croire que la maman avait eu une aventure avec un rottweiler !!
Bisous à mon Sherif....ta Faya

I cant believe you weigh nearly as much as me, and I am 8 and a bit.

I weigh 24 kg! Will you grow any more?

OMG Oscar you were such a cute little puppy! We've only ever seen fully grown Airedales here so we didn't know what you guys looked like as puppies. Thanks for sharing these wonderful pics with us.

We knew that ALL airedale pups are cute, but you were special!

Cuteness is important for us terriers, don't'cha think?
Otherwise, our humans would really be angry all the time.

Keep the pix coming,

Persephone & Buster

How interesting to see the changes in you. It's amazing how different you looked as a little puppy. I didn't know baby airedales looked like mini rotts :) You have grown into a fine handsome fellow!
