Some history of an Airedale

I'm feeling better now after eating that handmade soap in mum's bathroom! I've been sleeping it off so thank goodness, I'm feeling and acting much more like myself!
Did you know that back in the days of WWI and WWII, Airedales were used to carry messages and help aid wounded soldiers? Well, I apparently came from this breeding stock as seen below.
Mum and dad have been giving me mail and packages to take home since I was a wee puppy! Today, I got something in the mail! Oh, what could it be?
Gotta get this thing home so I can see what's inside!
Almost home! Here I am in my favorite spot while surveying the goods. Looks like a.....what is this? A TRAIN & TREAT Bag?? There's gotta be something else in here (like some yummy treats)! Yes, I did get some delicious dehydrated chicken strips, but I ate them all up! I wonder what the training bag is all about though! Mum used to have one, but I found it one day and chewed it all up! (mum here. MWuhahaahaa - Obdience class maybe?) Oh Yeah! We nominated Jasper Poodle Head for Photo of the Month since he's got the St. Paddy's Day spirit! (plus he's got such a fabulous swirly curly tongue!) So, Please vote for Jasper!

I know you told me about carrying packages but now I can see it with my own eyes!

Mum is going to write an article about Airedales in WW1 & 2 for our Airedale club newsletter, so let us know if you have any info!

Wow, I never knew that history about Airedales. I love that video of you, and it sounds like all the humans you met along the way thought it was adorable too.

You will love obedience classes. I sure do!

Hi! Happy Paddy's Day! Cool video. It's funny--there's a guy at my dog park who is a bit of a know-it-all who insists that Airedales were bred to hunt lions and that they're the meanest breed around. Ha!
