Our Cairns love Christmas. This is a photo from Christmas 2007. We always have a stocking of toys for Molly and Jack to open. Some of their stocking gifts are their old toys that I wrapped up. They just enjoy the unwrapping process so much and it's a fun activity for them.
Jack especially loves toys that talk. This year we got him replacement #3 of the Pip Squeak Duck dog toy, some kind of goofy toy called a Deedle Dudes cow and a Skinneeez skunk.
Speaking of skunks, Molly got sprayed by a skunk today while we were out on our walk. Oh boy ... another story for another day!Posted on November 29, 2008 | Permalink | Comments (0)
"I am trying to train my new puppy to follow me during our daily off leash walks, but she seems distracted by all of the normal outdoor things like leaves, birds, twings, etc. She just ignores me when I call her to follow. Do you have any puppy training sugestions that will help? We live in the country and it is perfectly safe for her to be off leash. I still want to keep a close eye on her and these walks are a fun activity the family can do together with our new pup. ~BridgetPosted on July 03, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
A fun activity for your family and your Cairn Terrier is to create a dog photo album. With the popularity of digital cameras these days it is quite easy and inexpensive to shoot and print quality photos of your dog's mug shot.
Here are some of my Cairn Terrier Photo Album ideas for you, your Cairns and the entire family to work on together. It's a lot of fun and will freeze those precious memories of your Cairn forever.Posted on May 26, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
Doggie hide and seek in our house isn't played too often, but when it is my Cairn Terrier's love it.Posted on May 11, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (1)
If you have any old socks laying around, why not make some homemade dog toys from socks. Here are two homemade dog toys I've made from socks contributed by my entire family!Posted on May 10, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (1)
Since Cairn Terriers are super smart, it doesn't take long to train them basic dog tricks. I taught Molly how to jump through a hoola hoop in as little as 10 minutes using a clicker, of course.Posted on May 10, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
I love teaching our Cairn Terriers new things. They love learning and most of the time what I teach them isn't hard. The Cairn Terrier breed is smart, agile, and full of energy. They thrive on learning new things or they get bored. My next project will be a fun one, and I'd like to take you along with me while I teach them. I'm calling this project "Earthdog Backyard Fun" and the concept is based on the dog sport, Earthdog Testing.Posted on May 03, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
Should you dress your Cairn Terrier in dog clothes? I admit that I think some dog clothes are cute. I admit that it can be entertaining for humans to see especially during the Halloween season. I admit that I have bought Molly, our first Cairn Terrier a winter coat.Posted on May 03, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
We tried a number of things to discourage the Cairns from digging holes in their fenced in yard. But only one trick worked for us most of the time.Posted on April 25, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (0)
Here in the southeast central part of the USA, summers are brutally hot and humid. Molly and Jack love to be outside even though it's blistering hot, so we bought them a kiddie pool to wade in. Yes, you read that right.Posted on April 23, 2006 | Permalink | Comments (1)
