Diary of an Airedale: A Terrier's Tale, Airedale Diaries Volume 2 by P.J. Erickson is a humorous book on the adventures of an Airedale named Alf. In Diary of an Airedale, Alf shows his intelligence, sense of adventure, and mischief as he nears his second birthday. Diary of an Airedale is suited for those who love dogs and enjoy the feeling of laughing until one cries. P.J. Erickson might have classified this as fiction, yet a reader can easily gain a new understanding of their furry friend within these pages.

Move over Astro, Buster, Blue, Dudley, and Goofy, and make room for Alf the Airedale! Alf is an Airedale on a mission of humor and mischief as he gets into trouble, adventures, and straight out hilarious situations. Alf is a dog that keeps his people on their toes as he forces them to be prepared for whatever situation he will create next. I literally found myself crying with laughter as I read about how Alf puts his nose on the glass door when he wants to go outside so as to avoid barking, being polite to his people. Then his owner got a sticker that read: “My windows aren't dirty. That's my dog's nose art.” My dog does the exact same thing with his nose all the time and I am always having to clean the glass. After reading this, I am planning on getting my own sticker! My two favorite aspects of Diary of an Airedale by P.J. Erickson is that Alf is the narrator of his diary and that there are so many facts included in the book which actually taught me new things about my dog.
