The first to steal my heart Review with images

AdvantagesA friend for life

DisadvantagesTakes a little bit of your heart when its time is up

"...very first dog - a Cairn terrier named Bingo; the cutest little bundle of fur you could ever imagine. He was twelve weeks old, about 8 inches long and four inches in height. When the door opened, in rushed a four legged ball of light, grey fluff, skidding across the freshly polished, linoleum floor - there's a clue as to how long ago that was.

They were so funny to watch- they'd bark at the waves, then jump into the sea to climb on the owner'd dinghy. They kept this up all day, never tireing. Before we left, I asked what breed they were. Cairn terrier was the reply I got. Then, nearly ..." Read review

a lovable rogue

Advantagesfull of fun, very lovable,good with children.

Disadvantagesstrong willed.very inquisitive,be prepared to lose for a while on a walk

"...once you have had a cairn you are well and truly hooked.I missed the fun becuse cairns are loyal fun loving,friendly rogues.A walk with a cairn is definitely an experience.Be prepared to lose your dog for a while because if it sees something interesting it will be off like a shot,no matter how well trained it suddenly becomes deaf until it suddenly remembers you and comes back to see if you want to join in the fun.A cairn can play all day in the fields,or ..."
