We know Airedales are sneaky and clever and they tend to be counter surfers. Even when we don't perceive a problem they can create one. Above is a picture of the damage my 5-year old Bronson has done. This basket has sat on my counter for years. It contains both dogs' medications. I was out of town and he must have gotten mad so he got in major trouble. He consumed major doses of anti inflammatory and several others. As a result has been in the hospital 5 days so far. His liver has been effected, we just hope he can recover. His liver enzymes are suppose to be around 100, his are over 6,000. No one has ever seen them that high. Leave it to an Airedale to get that bad and survive. He has shown the true Airedale spirit and is not only alive but lively. People look at him and think he is fine. How an Airedale can fool even the best of them.
Please, do another check of your home and Airedale proof your house, even if your boy or girl has never gotten in trouble before. For Airedales, there is always a first.
Give your dales a hug and a kiss and be glad for every wonderful day they give you.
UPDATE: This was written two weeks ago and Bronson is slowly recovering. At last report, his liver enzymes were 1,300. Bronson was lucky.
