Newman Posted May 28, 2012 Share Posted May 28, 2012 (edited) I was reading online and most of the sites say cairns are supposed to only be 14inches long from chest to end of legs, and only weight 14lb's and not have a fluffy tail/etc/etc. I find it pretty funny that they say all these things when my Dog (Fonzyy) actually is the total opposite. His length is 18inches, he weighs almost 27lb's now. He has a huge moon-shaped tail that is extremely fluffy and it touches his back. All the stuff that the people say isn't a true cairn. But to be honest, I disagree why? Because it doesn't matter what's on the outside of the cairn, My fonzy HUNTS and will catch/chase ANYTHING he sees. His hunting ability is absolutely mindblowing!! That is why I believe he is a true cairn, not because he doesn't fit the requirements of physical traits.. All I can tell you all is don't be discourage about what books/ or what people think of your dog.. It only matters what the inside of the cairn does is what counts, none of these horrible physical traits the judges think should be... I love fonzy with all my heart no matter what Also my dog has not 1oz of fat on him @ 27lb's he is pure muscle. Edited May 28, 2012 by Newman Quote Click to show the full size image!
