      Love the baby food jar idea.  I am storing up this forum’s great advice in anticipation of my next pup.  My last Cairn was 2nd hand at 8 mos.  some of the bugs had been worked out, others, not so much….it took a long time to get her to ask to go out…a long time.  End result, best dog ever! I think it’s the hard ones that are so worth it.

      Atticus is doing well. We are still working on housebreaking and he hasn't caught on, but we have not given up hope. He has been home for a month now and we are waiting for him to show signs that he has to "go". Friday I had to take him to the emergency vet. Atticus was extremely lethargic and would not eat or drink that morning. I was so worried about him, so we sat in the parking lot for almost 4 hours. All his vitals were fine, but his tummy was very tight. They wanted to do xrays but said we could wait until he saw his vet. The vet said he was stable, and we could take him to his regular vet (he already had an apt the next day) . His regular vet said his tummy was fine (he ate dinner that night) and xrays were not needed. Atticus is on a bland diet, which he loves, for the next 3 to 5 days. We took it easy the next day and he is back to his normal crazy self...zoomies and all! Cairns sure tug at our hearts....I almost had a heart attack worrying about this little guy! We think he got into something outside since he picks up works, and such, on our walks. Atticus know how to sit, down, and stay. He will come if I have a treat in my hand. We need to work on greeting people and not jumping up on them. He walks well on his leash, although he doesn't want to leave the park when there are kids playing!

      He is a wonderful pup and I am so enjoying his “events.”  Please keep the pictures coming, I don’t want to miss anything!
