I FINALLY, AT LAST, found someone (click on "someone" for link) who totally understands what it is like to own a Cairn Terrier. Here is an exerpt:
If after perusing all these Cairn Terrier related issues and you still think you might be right for a Cairn... I would obtain one final opinion from a disinterested third party, otherwise known as a 'Sanity Check'.
Even if you do not own a Cairn, you will enjoy Dan's stories - really, REALLY funny, and sooooooo true. One minute you can't imagine loving a dog more, and the next minute you wanna kill 'em. Total obnoxious brats. Anyway, trust me on this one and read if you are any kind of a dog lover at all.
