OWNER COMMENTS: Will and Grace are 6 years old and brother and sister. I waited on an adoption list and was very fortunate to get two from the same litter. They have always loved being together with no sibling rivilry. They are very healthy and happy and have never had any problems or broken bones. They grew up together on a 20 acre farm and was around cows, horses, trucks and tractors and have always been indoor and outdoor dogs. They are both loving, committed, agile, graceful, athletic, and love adults and children. They are very used to baths, haircuts, toenails, teeth brushed, ears cleaned by me. I have never allowed them to sleep outside all night unless it was with me. They are well mannered in the house, housebroken since puppies and gentle on the furnishings. I have never had anything chewed on or broken since they were very young. They went through a pillow phase leaving a river of feathers. Another phase was taking turns jumping from the stairs to the bed and onto the floor. They obey voice command and some hand signs. They have been well taken care of both weighing in around 80 pounds each. I have given them high quality dry dog food but mostly it is fresh meat like chicken, turkey, beef, salmon, tuna, cooked vegatables. They love vanilla yogurt for their dessert. They know this as leche They have been my best friends and I cannot bear the thought of missing them. I hope someone will adopt them both and enjoy their warm love, compassion and sense of humor I will miss deeply. I have owned Airedales before but nothing as great as this pair. They walk in tandum on a lease, lay together in the yard like statues moving their heads in unison watching over the property. When I tell them I love them their tales wag fiercely, as they know those words. They both love the snow but I think it reminds them of the their feather pillow days.They are pure Airedales, they sleep with all 4 legs in the Aire.
Will- Great appetite, he loves food, finishes first but will wait for permission before taking anyones left-overs. Will has a beautiful deep black coat more dense then Gracies. He is quick to come when called and is a good walker by your side. Will still trys to make friends with skunks and will suffer through the repeated spraying he will get trying to fiqure out what they are. I discovered immediately warm soapy bath followed by mouthwash as a rinse does the trick. He likes to sleep by a glass door or window, or a tall landing to keep an eye on things. He loves spending his entire day outdoors as he would get up and quarter the yard for his first job in the morning. Will has a big smile, he will smile at you just calling his name. If he spends the whole day without you he will snatch a sock and put it in his bed just to keep you with him closeby. He is chipped, docted tail, neutered and wears a Harley Davidson collar. Will is a lovable teddy bear, if you let him he will gladly jump in your lap and lay his head against yours. Will would love to lick your face to show you his affection if you let him. Will is deeply loving.
The person who adopts my dogs are getting the creme of the creme.
