If you have any Halloween aire-pumpkins to add or you have pictures of your ‘dales dressed up to trick or treat please send them to me at rebels_mommy@yahoo.com and I will add them to the post.  Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween!


Have a Scairey Halloween

You too can ‘dale up your doorway with this Airedale pumpkin pattern! 

First I got this template from ehow.com  http://i.ehow.com/media/docs/holiday/halloween/pumpkin_carving_templates/dog.pdf

I put a piece of white paper over top and traced the eyes, noes and tongue but added triangles for ears and a shaggy beard.   ***Note: do not make complete triangles for ears, leave the  corner closest to the head incomplete ***

Next I taped the new and improved dog to the pumpkin.  Then using a tooth pick I poked holes along all the edges.

Cut along toothpick holes to reveal your Scairy-dale Terror


  Happy Halloween Aaaarooooooo!

**** If you carve an ADT pumpkin, please email me a picture at rebels_mommy@yahoo.com .  For Halloween I will post a picture of our Airedale Pumpkin Army!!!  *****

Airedales on Halloween

IMG_1353This year we had a guest for Halloween, at our AireHotel we offer turn down service and wake up calls. They look much the same and assume that you are able to make enough room on the bed to get some sleep.  Gator wanted to make sure that everyone saw the decorations. We found the perfect pumpkin stencil here. If  for some reason that is not working download here.  Here is Gator and her pumpkin. Elliott was too busy trying to sample other pumpkins to appear.


















Happy Howloween!

On a more serious note remember the following Halloween safety tips.

As much as your dog or cat may beg for some of your Halloween candy, always remember that chocolate is deadly to them in any amount.

The wrappers, such as tin foil, can get stuck in your pets digestive tract and make them ill or cause death.

If your dog has only recently developed a sensitivity to fireworks or noises, try not to react. Any comforting will only server to encourage this behaviour.  If the reaction is strong perhaps try some Bach Rescue Remedy

Please comment on what works for you to help your pets through a night of fireworks.
