I am starting a new business called TREASURE. I am selling my things from a store called TOWN PEDDLER. I have rented a showcase that have my things in it. Not only the Airedale item. But antique that I have collected through the years. Here is a picture of the showcase and business card.
I was 6 months old. When my father came home with a English Setter named Lady he brought for me. My Mom said sure?? She couldn't be a good hunter and that is why you brought her?
Well Lady was my babysitter. My Mom could leave me outside on the grass and not worry. Lady would let me do whatever I wanted so long I stayed on the grass. As soon as I started towards the side walk or off the grass. Lady would get a hold of the seat of my pants and pull me down. She was the best and always watched out for me. I have been raised by dogs all my life.
Here is the photo of the Airedale Walking Stick. That was brought by Sue Sorenson at a antique show in Portland Oregon. It was one of the sticks that I had made ten years ago. If it could only talk. WOW what a story it could tell.
Here are comments on two others that own them.
Hi Falcon Sidney wrote. "I still have my two beautiful heads purchased at about the same time. The Arizona heat separated them from the stick but the heads hold a place of honor on my bureau."
Sidney I remember how worried I was when I shipped them to you because of the heat.

Thank you so much for commenting on the photo. I remember making them.
The antique dealer also had things from a woman that died. He though could have belonged to her.
I had just joined Gena Airedale list and know no one. The sticks opened the door to meeting great friends. I made 300 of them.
After 10 years a Airedale Walking Stick shows up at a Antique Show in Portland Oregon. Ten years ago I made and sold them. A lot of member of ATRA brought them. Here is pictures of ones I made for myself. The one Sue Sorensen brought at the show. I am unable to post because it is to large.
Some of you may not on that our Mom is a artist. She has come up with idea. She would hand paint head of your dog on a wooden key chain. It is 3 1/2 long and 2 1/2 " wide. You would have to send her a photo of your dog. It would cost $25.00 to have it done. $5.00 of that will go to any rescue you like to donate it to. You can send her a e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
