Since then I have shown Airedales and Border Terriers (my “old lady” breed) and have put championship titles on both breeds. I have had 3 litters of Airedales and 2 of Borders, mostly to have another dog to show. I still have 2 generations of ‘dales living with me, having lost my first ‘dale Juliet. 4 years ago at the age of 16.
I have been involved in Rescue almost as long as I have had Airedales, all within the state of Texas. I currently am the Treasurer for the Texas Airedale Rescue Team, which I have been a part of for the past 9 or 10 years. I’ve done squares for the Quilting Bee and was one of the early members of the Lone Star Airedale Terrier Club. My husband of 32 years and I have a boarding kennel in Georgetown, TX just north of Austin, where I am able to keep the rescues who don’t have a foster home.
We currently live with Airedales Minuet 12, her brother Nova 12, her daughter Charm 8, and Borders JJ 14, and Diva 2, plus 1 Schnauzer mix named Gidget.
I hope to be a good Chair for Rescue. If anyone has any ideas, problems or issues, please feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to working with all of you.
