It's been about a year since Miss Annie (aka Anna Banana Badness Berry & Miss Bossy Boots) came into rescue from a local shelter, not quite two years old. Shortly thereafter, she became the newest member of our family & celebrated her second birthday with us in May.
Annie came into a family of six: parents + two older children (seventeen & twenty) + two Airedales (Miss Ruza, thirteen & Master Scot, who celebrated his third birthday just before Annie had her second one).
Annie quickly learned to respect Miss Ruza, taught Miss Ruza to countersurf immediately (while we were discussing how best to break Annie of that delightful habit), & dedicated herself to keeping Scot fit (she still thinks he is her personal chew toy-he does not appear to mind). She was (and still is) a typical adolescent Airedale-very loving & affectionate, wild as a March hare at times & "Mama's dog" at others.
We have concluded that we need a minimum of two Airedales here at all times to "maintain an even strain". If you have similar needs, check your local Airedale rescue group-there you will find wonderful dogs of all ages & genders, just waiting to find their "forever" homes, just waiting to be loved & to love you back.
