A blog about animals and the ways people interact with them.

Last week Miro and I went to Megen's house to visit lots of Airedales who had gathered there for grooming day with Sheila. Sheila brought her dogs Kimi and Rummy; they're the ones who are stripped to perfection and are wearing brown collars. First everybody milled around saying hi.
Then some jumping.
That's Kimi or Rummy trying to show who's boss.
Miro says, "You're not the boss."
See the short tail of the dog on the right (below)? She is a rescue. Megen fosters lots of dogs for Airedale rescue and finds them good homes. This dog came to Megen very overweight and with so little muscle tone that she couldn't play the way she does now. Lots of dogs in rescue come from the same breeder and you can always recognize them by their badly docked tails. This breeder has been ruining Airedale tails for at least twenty years and his dogs have been finding their way into Pacific Northwest Rescue for that long, too.
