Happy Tails


We have always had terriers.

Airedales, Wire Fox and even a Welsh. Somehow we always comeback to the king of the terriers.  We knew last summer our magnificent ATRA Airedale Hank was in decline after 12 amazing years (please see our rainbow article just submitted). 

Annie II (AKA Reina) and Joan Find Each Other- “I need her as much as she needs me”.

Sometimes things are just meant to happen.  So it was, with Annie II coming to live with me all the way from KY to MN.  My husband, Randy, introduced me to Airedales within weeks of our marriage, and during our 40 years together we raised three Airedales from pups, and adopted two seniors from ATRA.  Sadly, our Annie died in December, and in May, my dear Randy died, after a very long illness.  It was so quiet and empty here—until the phone rang.
