Today, our mom is taking over our blog to tell you about her very first Airedale. Her name was Pockets and she was a sweetheart. Unfortunately, she was born with a cleft palate and as she grew older, she developed other health problems. She is the reason our blog is called Airedale Heaven. Every time I took her to the vet or the groomer, we had to stop to visit 6 or 7 people along the way. They all wanted to see Pockets every time we left the house. Several of them told me that if there is such a thing as reincarnation, they want to come back as one of my dogs. Hence, the name Airedale Heaven. We think she could have been a therapy dog if she had gotten the training. She seemed to make everyone smile. Pockets went to the rainbow bridge almost 6 years ago just about 2 weeks shy of her 5th birthday. Before she went, she taught Penny a lot about being an Airedale and some naughty tricks too. Poppy never got to meet Pockets, but sometimes she acts just like her. It must be an Airedale thing! I guess I will continue to miss her until I meet up with her at the bridge. In the mean time, Poppy and Penny are continuing her Airedale ways.
