Meet Xena, our itsy-bity-tiny Airedale puppy.
She came to us all at the way from Delaware where she is the runt of the litter of 11 puppies. Xena is ten weeks old now, but when she arrived at eight weeks old she only weighed 3.5 pounds. Even though she is small in size she has the spirit and heart of an Airedale and is now charging through life fearlessly. With lots of love and care from the great breeders April and Todd Clyde from Longvue Airedale, she’s now part of our family and we couldn’t be happier.
Even Roman our resident grumpy eight year old Airedale is smitten with baby Z as we like to call her. We were worried how Roman would take to having a new dog in the house. Last February we had a tough month when our Airedale Cleo was diagnosed with a heart tumor at the age of thirteen and passed rather quickly. Then tragedy struck nine days later when our Weimaraner Caesar (who had never be apart from Cleo) had a stroke in the middle of the night and did not survive.
Needless to say we were all very sad, especially Roman who had never been alone and has struggled ever since.
Well, I am happy to say little Z may be small but she has a mighty personality and we are all quite happy to have her in our lives, even grumpy old Roman who now has a constant shadow.
