So Stan learnt at daycare that "you can be anything you set your mind to".

And Stan wants to be a Butterfly.

Could he get any more adorable? I guess the answer is yes -- the great pictures just keep on coming!

Meet Pax the Airedale terrier.

https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/british...27bfe13c00.jpg

It's been a bitter-sweet experience so far, as a short time after arrival we realised he had a coxofemoral dysplasia issue (instability of the hip).
Long story short, after discussions with several vets and weeks of research we decided on a somewhat complex op: a triple pelvic osteotomy reinforced by the addition of a second plate. The very specialized vet was brilliant and fortunately all went well. :)

He's a lucky boy...... and nobody's taking his rubber bone!
Has the op fixed everything?...... because hip problems can be really difficult and Airedale's aren't exactly small..... or quiet.

How right you are, Airedale's are certainly not small and to make matters worse, ours from day one was an exceptionally hyper-active dog. It was for this reason that the vet suggested we may wish to consider a reinforced second plate & screws, as he'd had experience of a hyper-active labrador pup, the owner of which did not want the additional expense of the reinforced option. Two months later the young dog had jumped and fallen badly, damaging the implant and surrounding tissue. Apparently his subsequent repair was complicated and with significant risk, not to mention the additional expense.

Incidently although no pain was apparent, the problem with our pup was initially noticed when running (bunny-hopping), and the hip dysplasia condition then confirmed by x-rays. Apparently many owners are not aware or overlook a problem, which then manifests itself after a few years when the dog has difficulty and suffers pain when walking.
This shows how he looked arriving home the day after the op. Not for those of a nervous disposition........ ;)




Did I mention hyper-active.......? The morning after, not only had he torn the surgical collar to bits, and it was hanging off lop-sided, he'd torn off all three surgical dressings and swallowed them. A 2nd pneumatic collar didn't last more than a few days, and it was only a heavily modded replacement plastic collar with duct-tape that provided a longer term solution.
These dogs are as hard as nails, and often stubborn as the proverbial mule. The upside is they have wonderfully affectionate personalities, which makes them wonderful pets when they realize who the boss is.

Now well on the mend in this recent pic, he appears to be saying, "Ok, I’m on my best behaviour, but just for this one mug-shot!"

Pax is gorgeous. Years ago my sister had an Airdale...Kerry. She was also very energetic. I remember once leaving her at mine while we went out for the day. She obviously didn’t like being shut in...hubby had to replace the door and door frame. :eek:

I'm thinking the easiest time to get a photo is when he's asleep......

At junior school I had a friend with an Airedale. My parents had a Dachshund. We decided to take them for a long walk (and it was, considering our ages!). He lived about 4 miles one side of our school, I lived 5 miles in the other... and we walked from mine to his. I will never forget the scene as we got to the park and Paddy, the Airedale took off - it was like a caroon, with my friend being dragged along behind him. Then Paddy would stop, come back and lick his "master's" face in "apology", walk for about 20 yards and then take off again. How I laughed! How I laighed indeed, until about 5 miles in when my charge did the famous Dachshund "anchor" trick, sat down, refused to budge and couldn't be moved.... Try carrying a Dachshund for a few miles, aged 10.

Pax is a gorgeous boy! So glad he is recovering well, I wish him good health going forward. I've always wanted an Airedale -- after all, we originate in the same place! -- but my OH is incredibly allergic so we have to have hypoallergenic dogs.
