The CairnTerrierHistoryIIYahoo!Group (CTH) is devoted to the collection and republication, with permission, of information about the history of the Cairn terrier. Scientific or educational information about the Cairn that is ancillary to the history of the breed may also be posted. The sole purpose of the list is the exchange of information (e.g., articles and photos) relevant to Cairn owners, breeders, exhibitors and judges.

Subscribers are encouraged to submit photos or information to CTH. Please use the files, photos, links and calendar sections of the list for this purpose.

The group will NOT be used for the exchange of messages from members. Contact me privately via SeanPAlbert@aol.com to subscribe.

It is hoped that the information gathered by CTH will someday be hosted by a national or regional Cairn terrier breed club website.
