Missing Airedale Terrier in Mexico

January 28th, 2009 by Max

We received the following email from Elizabeth Barry, President of National Airedale Terrier Rescue.  Please link to this post or pass it on in email.

Dear Airedale Lovers,

3 year old Scatzi

3 year old Schatzi

A female Airedale Terrier disappeared from a small Mexican beach town resort in Mexico while on holiday with her family. “Schatzi” disappeared suddenly on January 2, 2009, and no genuine sightings have been reported, although some people claim to have seen her.

The town is here:
Rincon de Guayabitos is north of Puerto Vallarta.

Schatzi’s owner, Erika Reyes, has notified everyone she can in the area, but had to return home to Mexico City. She continues to make every effort to find her beloved Airedale. Her brother returned to the area and is again going from door to door and handing out fliers.

Please forward this email to everyone you know and publish it in your newsletters. If you have contacts with Mexican news organizations, politicians, prominant businessmen — please use them. If anyone has any contacts at all in this region, please ask them to be watchful and to pass the word.

Many Americans and Canadians retire in this area. It is possible that someone visiting found her and returned home with her – she could be anywhere. Forward this email to everyone in your address book. The more ears and eyes that are on alert, the better her chances will be.

Schatzi is young, only about three years old, and is well cared for. She is microchipped.

Erika’s email is reyesito@HOTMAIL.COM

There is a web page for Schatzi with a link to download the poster in Word or PDF versions.

Let’s hope Schatzi gets returned home soon!

Another Rescued Airedale Gives Life to the Max A Great Review

January 9th, 2009 by Max

Whew!  It’s been really hard to dig out after the holidays, so I’ve been dogging my blog.  But no more!  It’s a new year and it’s just gotta be great!

To start the year off on an especially positive note, we are particularly honored to share this review we just received from Bert Krause, who is a writer for his own blog, Bert’s Bytes on the Southwest Airedale Terrier Rescue website.  Here’s his canine point of view:

Hi, my name is Bert and I’m a rescued Airedale just like Max. While I didn’t technically read this book, my Dad read it to me and we both enjoyed it… to the Max.

Life to the Max is basically the story of Max’s life with his forever family as told by Max himself in his unique Airedale style.  He shares with you the major waypoints in his life, both happy and sad.  After each episode, he states the lesson (maxim) that he derived from the experience.  There are twenty such maxims in this book.  My favorite is #14.  (Never miss a chance to tell those closest to you that you love them.)

Some reviewers might call this a children’s book, and it is indeed a wonderful story to read to your children that can be used to teach them some very valuable lessons of life.  Lessons like:  who or what really matters in your life; dealing with the loss of a pet, or a family member for that matter;  giving  the gift of love is the very best thing you can ever do.

So, buy this book and read it to your kids or read it to your parents.  Everyone will enjoy the story and come away with a better outlook on life and how to live it…To the Max.  I heartily give it four paws up.  It doesn’t get any better than that.

And if you really want to give your kids an extra special treat, get them an Airedale from Southwest Airedale Terrier Rescue (SWAT).  You will both be glad you did.  Life is merrier with an Airedale terrier.

Be good to each other, we’re all in this together.

Your friend,
Bert Krause

Thanks Bert.  Keep on living Life to the MAX!  You are so perceptive!
