Airedale Terrier Thanksgiving

In the quaint town of Prescott Arizona, nestled amidst rolling hills and vibrant autumn foliage of central Arizona’s High Desert at elevations of 5,300, lived two spirited  larger Airedale Terriers named Teddy. and Tova. Teddy and Tova were no ordinary dogs; they possessed an uncanny ability to understand human language and  hearts brimming with warmth and compassion. As Thanksgiving approached, Teddy and Tova eagerly awaited the festivities, tails wagging with anticipation of the savory aromas and joyous gatherings that filled the holiday air.

The dog park areas have a posted 6 a.m. opening, but really I think they open closer to 5:30 a.m..  Today when we arrived at the park a handful of dogs on the inside, all were on leashes and there were three or four more people waiting at the entry.

Airedale Terriers and Rattlesnakes

I made this video a couple years back when I was still in San Diego. We’re now in Peoria Arizona, and with  the weather warming up, I think it apropos that we pay close to attention went out walking our dogs.

Last year, when out walking my dogs on the trail in Paloma Park, here in the Peoria area of Arizona, we encountered diamondback snakes on a number of occasions.

Tova is a 14 week old Arizona Mountain Airedale Terrier. Her housemate is Teddy who is also a larger Airedale Terrier.

When Teddy first came to San Diego we had Annie who had just given birth to nine puppies about five months before Teddy arrived. Annie and Teddy were inseparable, and when we moved from San Diego to Arizona in November 2020 they were both exceedingly happy in their new house and their new big backyard.
