mickey Posted February 28, 2011 Share Posted February 28, 2011 This past New Years Eve I was given Mickey, a 3 year old Cairn, and he has been a perfect fit with our family. He is a better dog than I could imagine in my wildest dreams. Our neighbor's relative is a Cairn breeder who is getting out of breeding and has two 8 week old puppies, a male an a female, that she is looking to adopt out. She will give us either one. Mickey is great with other dogs so I have no concerns about the two dogs getting along. What concerns me is that I am in the process of trying to transfer from Oregon to Phoenix. This would mean that I would be gone while while my wife stayed behind until the kids complete the school year and then we would complete the move. It is an exciting time in our home, but I know that there will be unexpected stresses and complications between now and the time that we all land in Arizona. On the one hand, I would be crazy to pass up another free Cairn, but on the other hand, I worry that this might be a less than ideal time to adopt another dog. Having said that, my family is always up for a challenge and we always manage to struggle through challenges and things usually work out well. Do we go for it or pass on the opportunity? My heart says yes, go for it. Given the age of the puppies this wouldn't happen for a few weeks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
