Dog of the Day: Mars the Airedale Terrier
Second Airedale we’ve had. (Here’s the first.) He’s a smaller one, but just as nifty.
I am used to terriers being little. Airedales are even a little bit intimidating, knowing how destructive a 15-pound terrier can be.
Airedale Terriers were originally bred to hunt otters. I’m not sure I can forgive them for that.
The standard grooming for these guys always puzzled me. If I were a dog I’d want that fur on my muzzle cut, so I could see, you know, straight out in front of me?
