We recently watched my mom's Cairn Terrier, Skye for two weeks while my mom was on vacation.* Sky (11 mos) is 11 lbs, Tucker (18 mos) is 70 lbs ... intially we were concerned about the bitey face as Tucker, though very gentle, tends not to realize how big he is and flops and rolls with force!* As it turned out we needn't have worried, Skye and Tucker had the best time and were hysterical together!* Skye would always initiate play, even batting at Tucker's face while he tried to take a nap ... whenever Tucker had enough he marched himself into his crate to get some breathing room from the little one.* I can tell that Tucker is really missing her now and my mom has said the same about Skye who apprears to be moping.*
Here are some pics of our adventure!* Disclaimer - I have no claims to good picture taking as I don't personally own a digital camera, it was borrowed.* As well, in our house some pics show Tucker on a bunch of old blankets - this is him 'on his area,' we tend not to throw blankets all over the floor otherwise ....*
Thanks for indulging me in my second attempt to post pics ...
Tucker and Skye sitting pretty:
Tucker's toy Sheepy took a beating and had to be sewn up 4 times in two weeks:
And so it begins ....
Tucker pensive after it all ... 'What the heck just happened here ...?'
Wonderful picture story. Of course the Cairn will win. It's a Terrier. Terriers always win. LOL

Great pics! We just got done house-sitting my MIL's Yorkie Terrier, and I can vouch for the fact that the Terrier always wins!

Throw the ball, damn it!
I always place my bets on the little ones! Very cute pictures!
They look like the best of friends. I'm betting on the Cairn, never underestimate a terrorist, er... terrier.
