    A friend of my daughters gave her a one year old female Cairn terrier to bring home.(Yikes....like I really NEED another dog.)Apparently the dog barked too much when in the kennel. We havent had that problem, probably cause she isnt bored?
    I am familiar with terriers but have never had a Cairn.
    Is there anything particular I should know about them?

    I have a Cairn terrier and he's my buddy. He's a great mouser and is great with the chickens. He even travels with me. You'll love them.

    If you have favorite flowers-they may become her favorite flowers too. Only she'll love the roots!
    You will love her!
