This is Dougal. He came along when I was, um, probably just school age.
He was feisty, funny, smart and opinionated, like most Terriers, but as I got older he and I got to be good friends. In those days a kid could take her dog lots of places.
Later, along came Kirsty. Cairn Terrier puppies don't look real. They look more like stuffed toys.
|Jenny was pretty darned cute too!|
Then they go through a really odd stage where they molt out to their true colour.
Kirsty was a wheaten colour, really pretty. She wasn't the smartest dog, but she was super sweet. This isn't her, but it could have been.
She and Dougal got to have a couple of litters of puppies.
We were lucky to get to grow up with such nice dogs. I'm not sure why I don't like Terriers more. Well, it's not so much that I don't like them, as that I don't feel capable of managing one. They are generally feistier than me!
