Home at last in time for Easter! Hopefully puppies are coming.

Posted by on March 23, 2016 at 6:20 PM

Happy Easter to all from us here at Arley Hall Airedales.    Haven, Tallie, and I arrived home yesterday after a week long visit to Houston, TX area.    The breeding was a success, so now we sit and wait for ultrasound resultrs to confirm Haven's pregnancy.    I' m hoping and praying for her puppies since in past litter they were soooooooooooooo beautiful and sweet, too.    Haven has a wonderufl temperament and is quite the puppy mom.  

It was fun to have Carol Scott see Abraham's puppy, Tallie, and we had a get together with another Haven/Abraham puppy on Saturday...........Cersei, now known ast Katie came over to Carol's with her wonderful owners.   When I mentioned to Carol how difficult it was for me as breeder to make my choice between those 2 puppy girls, she answered she could understand it.   They are both beauties in different ways.  

The girls and I spent the day relaxing...........all of us are pretty tired after that trip.     Again have a wonderful Easter!

Plan to breed in Early Spring

Posted by on February 13, 2016 at 7:00 PM

Yes, we do.     I'm thrilled to be breeding Haven one last time.   This will be her 2nd litter, and it's a repeat to Abraham.    WSe are so excited!

A Sad Night at Arley Hall

Posted by on January 10, 2016 at 10:05 PM

Tonight our dear Callie passed away at home.   She had suffered a rare illness for the last year, and by some standards she excceed expectations for her survival.    During the last month in particular she was failing.   She suffered from myelofibrosis and her blood work was failling rapidly.    She is grandmother to our newest litter by Haven/Abraham and mom to Haven, Rhett, and little Mallory.    We will miss our girl, so loved by all of us here and such a great Mom, too.   RIP dear Callie.    Mom and everyone here misses you!

Happy New Year to All!

Posted by on December 31, 2015 at 6:35 PM

Today has been a bittersweet day for me since last puppy left with new owners James and Gracie Nall of sugarland, TX.   I'm thrilled to meet them, knowing just what a great home little Cirsei, now known as Katie will have; I trust them implicity.   That's another joy of what I do.....meeting wonderful people and bringing joy into their lives, just as my little munchkins have brought  so much into my own life.   

Now there is only little girl Talisa, or Bronwen,......I'm still unsure which I should go with now.   She's adjusting okay to being an only puppy, but at least Mallory is here to aggravate her somewhat.   She takes it in her stride.    

I so enjoy hearing about all my dogs, especially the new puppies and their owners.    So please continue to keep in touch, dear friends.   

It's too early  to think about the next litter since I am still recuperating from raising this last one.   It's hard work, especially when you are unassisted in help.   I'm still tuckered out for sure, and now added to the mix, I have my own puppy to concentrate on.   We'll do it, putting one step in front of the other and going onwards..   Now on to training classes so important for all puppies.

Wish me well this coming year since there will be many c hanges in my personal life down the road, scary as they are but just think how stressfree my life will be then!    I will be moving back to Joplin and the home wer originally lived in when I first moved here...........very nice and comfortable for all of us.    

Happy New Year, dear friends.   Bleassings and love to all during the coming year

Last Minute Gift for your Puppy

Posted by on December 22, 2015 at 10:35 AM

Forgot to write this earlier, but one new puppy owner remembedr to send me a blanket for her new puppy.   I usually write this early on, but I am busier than ever with Xmas and puppies leaving simultaneously.   Many previous owners tell me how their now adults love their fleecy, soft blankets are still a hit.    It also makes acclamation to their new homes easier for them.    So bring a blanket along when you pick up, I'll toss it in with the puppies at least for a few minutes, and your puppy will not be as lonely for his/her littermates.   Thank you, Janine Covington for reminding me, and Harper enjoys the beautiful red fleecy blanket with paw print in the corner as do the littermates.   Not so sure it will be clean when you return home, but it will be covered with puppy smells. .   

Also a good idea.........bring a little collar and lightweight leash for the return trip home.    Surely puppy will need to potty along the way, and then you can be sure of your puppy's safety.

I'm apologizing in advance........I have been slow on the paperwork, but the puppies will be registered.   You'll receive your AKC reg within next couple of weeks along with your puppy package.   I always gave them out at time of pick up, but new owners are always so excited about their puppies, they seldom listen  to me when I go over all the material.    At least once puppy is home and settled in, you can go over everything qt that tine,

Thw puppies had their departure physicals with Dr. Kent Findley, Neosho, MO, yesterday.   All were fine and healthy.   I could give the vacs myself; many breeders do, but I feel more comfortable knowing my vet checked them out.    I'll have a health record booklet for you when you arrive here     You'll also be asked to sign my contract for purchase .    Remember to bring final payment for puppy with a separate check payable to American Kennel Club so I can register your puppy with American Kennel Club., an oath I have taken with the Airedale Terrier Club of America.   Think of a registered name for your may nor may not have anything to do with the call name.    For instance "Haven" is reigsterd as Arley Hall Home Sweet Home; grandma Callie is Arley Hall Calla Lilly, so get thinking now.

rRemember, I want to hear how youre doing during the first couple days.   Anyting coming up...........just call me by phone, and I'm here to help.    It's a difficult time for me, too, seeing the babies I raised over past weeks leaving, but I know theylll be in good hands.   

Reminder.......if for any reason you are unable to keep your dog, please contact me (don't be afraid, embarrassed or snything)    I want to know where my puppies are forever.   Please, I ask your cooperation in this.

See all of you later this week.   Merry Xmas to all of you!

Puppy Pick Up Notifications

Posted by on December 9, 2015 at 8:10 PM

To date I have not heard from everyone regarding arrangement for puppy pick up.    I n case you didn't see, I really would like all puppies picked up by December 27th.   No more pick up scheduled for the 26th now..............already have 3, and I like to spend time with new owners.    Two are scheduled for 27th.........morning and aftrerrnon.   So.......I'll take one more on 27th, later in afternoon.    I need to hear from all who have not contacted me thus far.   Your puppies want to go to their forever home!     Please contact me by this weekend.   Thanks to all.

Puppy Visiting Day, Saturday December 5, 20125

Posted by on December 6, 2015 at 4:10 PM

Thanks for the new owners and their friends who visited yesterzay.    It's always fun meeting the owners and getting in on the puppy choice process.........a difficult one for everyone.    As a  longtime breeder, I would like to think these puppies are an wexceptional calm, smart, and absolutely wonderful temperament.    I'll be hard-pressed to make my own choice wshen the time comes.   Don't get me wrong.......I'm always looking, evaluating the puppies for shat I look for in a potential show puppy.   So many in this group meet those standards of criterion.   

Sorry for those who were unable to make it; you missed a lot of fun.    As it turned out, I was able to spend more time with those who swere here with a smaller number.   Food was great; companionship even bettet.

Just so you know, puppies wsill have their first puppy innocuation on Monday, December 21st, and I like to be sure they have no reaction so I like to keep them another day or two.   Afrter that, they cn leave for your home.   I know it's around Xmas so scheduling might be difficult.   I would like alll of them in their new homes by Sunday, Decemnber 27th if at all possible.   Please contact me wit h your date preferences.   I've Already heard from some of you.   I do not like to have more than 2 going home on a given day..........between paper work and getting them ready, that's about all I can manage in a day.   

It's always bittersweet to see them leave............I shed tears of joy for them knowing I have done the best possilble job in finding them the greatest of homes.    I also know I'm bringing lots of joy to their new families.

Puppies now over 2 weeks of age

Posted by on November 19, 2015 at 12:20 AM

Wow, time filies, especially when we have puppies!    Just to let you know, all males are apoken for, but as of tday we still have 2 females available.   Unfortunatley a longtime puppy owner of mine cannot take one due to a move.    So if you are interested in an adorable female, let me know.   Just complete the Puppy Questionnaire on this website, and I'll get back to you.   

This week I plan to start very early weaning...........mostly liquid of Goats milk with a little Baby Rice Cereal added, probably for the night feeding, just to tide them over through the night.    This is a huge deman on Haven...9 puppies, and she's a first time mom.    We'll see how they respond.    I'll be taking the weaning process very slowly though.  

Also the puppies will be dewormed for the first time this week;   I'll try doing that before I start first weaning attempts.   We're moving right along I'd say, and I've never had such robust looking puppies.   They are astonishing, all weighin in over 2 pounds now..    

Still some puppies available

Posted by on November 10, 2015 at 9:15 AM

Hi everyone, if you have not yet sent your non-refundable deposit to me, please do.    I cannot hold pduppies without a deposit,, since I have so many inquiries daily; it's not fair to those who might be interested.    So please hurry with them.   

The puppies are doing great; Haven continues to be sole provider of food at this time, but I'll begin some very early weaning the middle of next week......let the mess begin.     They ae sleeping better,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,only up once last night.    

And another day begfns.   Wonder how many laundry loads I dod with puppy laundry?

Puppies available

Posted by on November 7, 2015 at 1:15 PM

Hi Everyone, 

In between cat naps and doing laundry (puppy stuff mostly), I want to let you know we still have a few puppies available.   They are 6 days olld today and beatiful.   Contact me  if interested either on FB or my e-mail    Call if you wish............I'm old school and love talking to folks by phone.     I'll gladly answer any questions you might have.    These puppies will be eready to leave Xmas week........yes, I know it's a busy time for most of us.    

I'll post some pics asap, but they are beautiful!   So robust, too with gorgeous headpieces and great bone!

Puppies due early November!

Posted by on October 6, 2015 at 8:55 PM

We are so thrilled here...............returned today from U. of Missouri where an ultrasound confirmed Haven's pregnancy.   Puppies are due early November.   Haven is out of our Callie and Dickens (both AKC champs) and sire is "Abraham"...must che3ck his full pedigreed name.   He's a bir winning dog with an AKC Grand Championship.    Haven would easily have been a champ............Leonardo Garcini was eager to show her; however, day after I brought her home to grow some hair, she stepped in  the path of an oncoming car and had to have extensive reconstructive surgery so we're doing a planned C section on her.   I cannot wait, and she'll be a great Puppy Mom for usrfe.   She is soooooooooooo sweet..........ask anyone.    If you are interested in possibly adopting one of these puppies, let me know.   I have already heard from some owners of puppies who are interested and plan to honor their requests first.   Of course, I have first pick of the puppies as the breeder.   

Puppies soon

Posted by on August 20, 2015 at 1:15 PM

Planning to breed our Haven in next couple of weeks to a handsome Texan.    Now ifr we can only work out details and timing since he is "on the road" with his handler as a dog special.    Here's hoping all will work out as planned.   These should be wonderful puppies.............she is my sweetest girl ever, and he is gorgeous and a big-winning dog.    I plan to keep a puppy from that litter as does the sire's owner.   Both of us are very expected and hopeful for this breeding.   I'll keep everyone post.   These puppies will only go to approved homes for sure.

Breedings Planned

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 3:10 PM

I'm receiving lots of phone inquiries for puppies again.    I plan to breed during the Summer, 2015 sometime.     At this point I'm uncertain which of my girls will be proud Mama, but we'll see.    Keep checking this blog for further updates.

Puppies in a few months

Posted by on March 28, 2015 at 6:10 PM

It seems I will not be able to use the precious Imus puppies for Haven.   The therio vets at U. of MO. felt the concentraition the sperm is in is no my hopes of that are crushed.    Oh well, I'll be doing a natural breeding with a great dog next cycle for her, a dog well known in airedale circles; I can hardly wait.  

I've been having some healtr issues myself right now....a severe intestingal infection so it is just as well that no puppies are on the immediate horizon.    Besides if you recall, I have 4 month old Mallory to raise right now, and believe me she's a handful.    Onwards with hopes for another litter down the road.
