Linda Hobbet sculpted this engaging Airedale. Linda writes:

"Of the four Airedales who have shared my life, two of them couldn't get the hang of sitting up no matter how I tried to teach them, while two of them did it without being taught. When Punch was a puppy he sat up even before he learned to do a normal sit. In fact, his brothers and sisters all did the same thing. It took some effort to teach him to put h
is front feet on the floor! Do you think dogs know how cute it is?"

Linda's Punch

Closeup
An original watercolor by Canadian artist Catherine McMillan.  It measures 6 x 7 inches and is in a bamboo frame. The frame size is 12 x 12 inches.

 Maryellen Estes wrote:  "I live in Michigan and have a 5-year old Airedale named Rufus Alexander. He is my 7th Airedale. Rufus goes to Lil Nell’s Doggie Daycare in Walled Lake 2 or 3 days a week to burn off some energy while I’m at work.  He regularly steals the staff’s lunches as he figures out how to open any doors or gates that they put in place.  His arrival is announced by “Rufus is in the house!” and they immediately go into lockdown mode to secure all doors and food.  Still, he is one of their favorites and he loves to go there."
