Holly's fourth gotcha day!


Recommended Posts

Four years ago today I collected a little Cairn terrier from the breeder. She has spent four and half years in kennels and concrete run with ten other Cairns. She had been shown and then had two litters. Now the breeder was "retiring" her and I was lucky to get the sweet and beautiful Holly!

She was not good on a lead, did not know how to play, and was not keen on being fussed.

Now she will walk miles [when she feels like it!], plays happily and loves being fussed [when she feels like it!], she tells me when the phone rings or if I have visitors, and loves being near me.

I now adore Cairns whereas before I did not really know much about them.

I feel very blessed to have had four years of her gentle companionship and look forward to many more.

I found this forum just after I got her and have found in a source of help and friendship, along with our UK Forum, and feel that it is great to be amongst so many Cairnites!!

I love the concept of Gotcha day. :thumbsup: Cheers to you and Holly, friends and companions the way it was meant to be.

You've both certainly added charm and vitality to this forum too, so thanks for that as well :)

Holly! Happy Gotcha Day! :cake: I am so happy that you two found each other. Thank you for sharing your story of Gotcha. That's one of the great things about life - you never know where it's going to lead you. Happy to be sharing moments of Holly's and your life in the UK. :D

Happy "Gotcha" day to someone but I'm thinking that maybe Holly got the "Gotcha" in this deal! In any case, it is wonderful that you two "got" each other in the whole scheme of things.

Thank you for all your good wishes. Holly has had a good day, a nice long walk and then it was time to partly destroy the new toy before she had her dinner!!

Glad she was able to celebrate in a cairn way with a little destruction :party:

Hope many more years for you two together.
