An Airedale is a type of terrier. A terrier is a type of dog.
Airedales have wiry coats that are dark on the back and sides and tan everywhere else. Yada, yada, yada.
I’m sure this is of interest to dog lovers, but that doesn’t include me. I hope I’m not going to have to plow through every breed of dog as I work my way through the dictionary. If so, I may have to find a pack of wild dogs—ones that are much less domesticated than most Airedales—that haven’t eaten in a week and throw myself in the midst of them.
