Dylan wants to play!

Dylan is one of my favourite family dogs. He is a ‘dark face’ Cairn Terrier, and is a most handsome lad. Cairns were used to eradicate vermin on farms in the Western Isles of Scotland, and as such they are strong and quick, with a weather-proof coat. Dylan is an intelligent dog (as all Cairn’s are) and enjoys playing, and I have great fun with him. Fortunately, the breed lives well into their teens.

  1. Hello, Dylan!

    What a handsome boy you are! I have 8 Cairn Terriers in Cartersville, Georgia, USA. Where do you live? And who gave you your haircut? You look VERY trim and neat.



    • Dylan lives just outside Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in the north of England. I go back to see him each year, and get to play with him. He is a grand lad!
