Airedale playing with a Coyote

Airedale playing?

Well, this video and the music soundtrack makes me think this dog must be owned by a liberal who thinks everything in nature is just perfect and doesn’t realize by just letting his Airedale be with this coyote he’s putting it in terrific danger.

Do the dog and coyote a favor…..scare it off and don’t let your dog out when the coyote is out again….you are habituating him to a predator.  Airedales are pretty tough but more than 2 coyotes and you will have a very wounded or dead dog.  Remember right now he’s learning coyotes aren’t bad.

Amazing Facts About Airedale Terriers

 Airedale Terriers Amazing Facts 

Known as the “King of Terriers,” the airedale terrier is indeed the largest of all terriers. The dog breed originated in the Aire Valley of Yorkshire, and was created to catch otters and rats in the region between the Aire and Wharfe Rivers. An able sporting dog, he became an ideal working dog as well, proving his worth during World War I. Intelligent, outgoing, and confident, the Airedale possesses a wonderful playful streak that delights his owners.

During World War I, a hardy airedale terrier named Jack braved the battlefields to deliver a message to British headquarters. Running through a half-mile of swamp, artillery raining down on him, Jack suffered a shattered leg and broken jaw. Sadly, he passed away soon after he’d completed his mission. Incredibly, the message he was carrying saved his battalion and he was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for “Gallantry in the Field.” The bravery and courage exhibited by Jack holds true for today’s airedale terriers.

Dogs like Jack were bred as a multi-purpose dog who had the keenness of a terrier, but could swim and smell prey. Airedale Terriers have the distinction of being both a sporting and working dog, and today compete in agility, obedience, and hunt tests.

They enjoy life the most when there is a job to be done, even if it is simply entertaining children, with whom he gets along splendidly. (Nevertheless, an adult should always supervise interactions between kids and dogs.) Read more »

Dog or Human

Dog or Human Who would you save?

People sure got upset about the news of Cecil the Lion. It seems not enough people were upset by the news of Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts.

A 2013 study asked a question about dogs and humans. I found the results surprising, so we hit the beach in San Diego to test it out.

It turns out, of the 30 people we asked, only ONE person said they’d save the dog.

There is nothing to justify. It’s a matter of preference. Man’s “best friend” and all… I’m sure you would save a friend or loved one over a stranger if forced a choice. Read more »
