This started out as our diary of ownership by two rescued Airedale Terriers, Sophie and Murphy. Now we have added a Black Lab. We hope that our stories will amuse and educate you about life with Airedale Terriers and others.

It's been a long time and a lot has happened......
Well hellooo...it has been a long while since I have posted about our adventures. After several false starts and should haves on the blogging and personal fronts, I am back....unfortunately, one of our setbacks was the loss of my dear Sophie in May 2014. Wow, over a year ago, you are thinking. That is exactly right. It has taken me a long time to process that loss. Sophie's troubles started in January, 2014. She began to develop some suspicious bumps and lumps. Those of us who are owned by terriers, know that is common for them and often, not good. It was not good...in the end, her mammary cancer returned with a vengeance and metastasized and the effort to fix all of that was going to take her last strength. We made the difficult choice to ease her out of her discomfort, before she was left to an undignified end. I think that would have hurt her just as much. She went out surrounded by love and filled with treats. Kudos to our wonderful vet and staff. However I am keeping her picture up as she really was the inspiration for my posts.....
