Two very new friends came over last Friday for a romp with me at my house. Chester is 10 and Hamilton is my age, 2+ and we hung out like carrots and peas. As you can tell from the photos, Chester and Ham are both Airedales like me. Coincidentally, they are also raw fed like me. What are the odds? I'm so happy that their Mums allowed them to come hang out with me and my Mum.
My new friends Chester and Ham.
It was no easy task getting all 3 of us to lay down side by side to pose for a photo, because I just wanted to nibble on Ham's ear. Chester and Ham are well trained like me, but they don't seem to have a release command, so when we were all on a 'down', suddenly either of them would just get up and walk to get treats, so it was extremely difficult to have all of us laying together. Ha ha. Nonetheless, we decided to humor the humans and pose for a few. (Those darn treats are just too good to resist)
Ham and I get along much more because he's around the same age as I am. Chester's an older chap and he didn't really want to jump around and playbite with me too much. I respected him though, because if I got too rowdy with him, he would warn me with a growl and a side-ward glance, as if saying "hey kid, respect my space", and I would. So I took many toys and went to Ham and we would play together.

I got to know Chester and Ham when my parents took me to Marymoor Park, it was so great seeing both of them together, because Airedales aren't too common here in Washington. But I've already gotten to know so many in the area..
Alice, Dave, my sis Stella, Sophie, Ruffian, Mattie, and a few others whom aren't too close to me, so there's really quite a few of us up here who are Aire-friends. Could you just imagine how much fun it would be if my parents organized an Airedale get together this summer for all of us friends? Cool... ok, so Mum, that's a hint, when is it going to happen?
