The main thing I remember about our Airedale Terrier was that he loved to put things in his mouth. I thought it was hilarious as a kid, and nowadays I am not sure what to make of it. I guess it was pretty funny.

This dog would come sit next to me and put its mouth around my wrist, or put my hand or foot in his mouth. He never bit; he never even accidentally drew blood; he never acted the least bit aggressive towards people and was always very gentle and affectionate. He didn't lick us, or nuzzle us or show in any other of the typical ways dogs express affection, he just wanted to hold our hands. In his mouth.

What a strange dog. Sweet, loving, gentle and great with us kids, but strange.
