I remember that when they arrived at my breeder’s house they immediately went over and said hi to my furmom and all of the other grown-up Airedales that lived with me. When Phil, my breeder, came out of his house he took mom and dad over to our puppy den, which was basically a big hole in the ground and he called, "Puppy, puppy" and foir of us came running out of this hole!
Mom and dad didn't take me home that day. Missy was starting college in a few days and it was decided that we wait a couple more days, so I was tagged with an orange collar and they left.
I have lived with my family for 10 long years and it’s been an awesome ride!
I'm Mitch and I'm now almost two years old.
I remember that first day at my new home so well. I was a pet store puppy and one day my future mom and sissy sashayed into the Puppy Center, just taking a break from shopping for my mom's mother-of-the-bride dress!My sissy was getting married in June and this was a necessity!
I locked eyes with my mom and I could see the distressed look on her face that I was a four-month old Airedale Terrier puppy and I was in a crate with a wire bottom.
Her ears when straight up and she took off! She wanted no part of me and my puppy nippers! I remember that it was a cold day and dad had his fireplace going and I actually tried to walk right into the fire so I could get warmer! Mom grabbed me and told me that this sort of behavior would hurt me and that the fire was hot!
My crate was set up in the laundry room and it had a rope toy and a kong in there. I cried for hours when they put me to bed and the rest of the family went upstairs to sleep! It took a few days for the crying and the howling to stop but it did.
