On behalf of my humans, Steve and Marilyn Brown, I want to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving time with family and friends. As you can see by my Razorback shirt (from Ada Claire…thank you very much!), I will be close to the TV on Saturday afternoon cheering them on to beat the snot out of LSU!! (oops…sorry about snot). Before that, I hope to be getting some turkey scraps on Thursday and meeting some new people who are coming to our house. In any case, I hope each of you has a wonderful day, enjoying the company of friends and family, giving thanks for all of your blessings and hoping you don’t have to sleep outside in the cold! ( I don’t…I have my own kennel). ALWAYS keep our service men and women around the world on behalf of our nation in your hearts and minds. Save me a bone!! Duncan Brown

Grandma Macy, MercyMe, and puppies Avery, Milly, and Bronte having a raucously great time outside. running in and out of their tent, digging, all the usual airedale activities.
Joy Frederick's update ;
As you can see Cassie is getting big! She weighed 15lbs at the vets yesterday. She is doing great and finally walking on the leash. She can sit, lie down and shake on command. It doesn't take long to teach her something. A cheerio always motivates her.
Daphne, a.k.a. McKenzie with her new owners, Ryan and Cathy McNamara of Chicago. The McNamaras live in the Wicker Park area where there are lots of dogs and dog parks. I know McKenzie will enjoy becoming an "urban dweller". She already been out and about the neighborhood today taking her walks.now that she is leash trained.
Arley Hall Airedales at play in their sandbox for the lst time.
Enjoying themselves in their Airedale Excavation Site, trying to find bones.
Oh, what fun for these 12 week old puppies, Avery, Milly, Bronte, and Daphne.
With every litter, we have a theme. Glory's litter is Harry Potter books and movies. We use the ric rac to identify them and a way to keep weight records. At one week of age Glory was doing it "all alone", but during the 2nd week, I began to supplement by bottle feeding with my homemade puppy formula.
Bertie's new home is with Dr. and Mrs. Mark Carroll, Colorado Springs, CO. Mark is the experienced airedaler, and Berties already runs to him when he returns home. Bertie with Brendan on the way home - asleep... What a day of travel!Both beloved pooches.
Bertie with "The Man".... She has him wrapped around her little "paw"!
Our little Hermione left this morning for her new home......The Stephen Brown Family of Rogers, Arkansas. They'll use this pic for their Xmas cards I hear., especially since their familynow has a new addition.
EMail from Steve B. :
I'm not sure who has who 'trained', but here is Sir Duncan at 9 weeks in Bella Vista. He is sleeping through the night very well, getting me up around 4:30-4:45, which isn't too bad, considering I am NOW going to sleep much earlier in the evening. He likes his walks, hates the leader....but adjusting a bit. Full of piss (boy is he ever!!!!) and vinegar!!..typical terrier. Sincerely, Steve
The Deeter Family and their new addition...........all the way in Bismarck, N.D.
Waiting for McCreevy's flight arrival.
Airport arrival counter....The Deeter's can't wait to meet him!
Finally here!At home with the family.
McCreevy meets Lola the Wire Haired Fox Terrier.Exhausting day...!

The Mullens picking up their new puppy, "Potter" who is adjusting to his

The Fredericks with their little girl, "Cassie" who is adjusting
very well and sleeping her in comfy new bed.
"Daphne" sunning herself - still available.
"Bronte" looking to play with some non-traditional toys (a weed)- breeder's choice.
"McCreevy" taking a snooze and looking like Snoopy- no longer available.
"Duncan" quietly observing the crazy bunch.
"Avery" "on top of the world in the playhouse"- still available.
At 6 weeks of age I can really see personalities emerging and expressed. There is much interrelating with one another and testing boundaries, too. Their diet now consists of kibble mixed only with water. I rotate their toys so they will have variety and new things to discover. Starting at 7 weeks, I will begin some basic leash training and allow more freedom in our Puppy Play Yard.........more area to explore.
5 weeks old...
The puppies are now 5 weeks of age and are now really interacting with one another. Their minds are very curious about new things, and these are brave, adventuresome puppies. Their toys are of great interest to them now. Each day I change the Play Yard around so they have something new to explore. We just redesigned the entire area yesterday and added the Big Playhouse to the area. Still eating kibble, some pulverized/some whole mixed with Puppy Formula.
The puppies are now in the weaning process but still enjoying Mom, Glory a couple times daily. They are now standing before the puppy pan, eating a mixture of homemade puppy formula and kibble.
We had a great time yesterday with families visiting our Imus/Glory puppies.
On Puppy Visiting Day our puppies were 3 weeks of age. It's great for the puppies to have socialization with others, and I know they enjoyed the children especially.
Lots of families attended this special day.
Proud Momma Glory greeting the visitors.
She is so proud of her puppies and loves all the attention, too!

I am pleased to announce the arrival of our newest litter of puppies .........Sired by Ch. Arley Hall A.M. Broadcast Mogul (OFA Good) and Arley Hall Glory Days (OFA Good). Our puppies are doing great and are eating well. Glory is my Supermom, taking great care of them. The puppies are already scurrying around (much like a gator) the whelping box to be near Mom. Of course their eyes are still closed, but they have a keen sense of smell.
I'll be posting pics very soon. Watch for additional updates. Still looking for approved home for some of this litter. Inquire by submitting puppy questionnaire or by phone.
