There's a bit of a story behind why I picked up a certain manu-patch. And now seems as good a time as any to tell it.
For the past 27 years, the dog in my life has been an Airedale Terrier.
Being an Airedale person, I'm always on the hunt for Airedale things. Calendars. Figures. Anything. Around 2003, I came across a plush airedale online, and immediately got it.
