Loved it!  I particularly like the way the Cairns of yesteryear were allowed to look more ruggedly natural than the more 'done up' versions today.

I agree completely, which is why I let Ruffy's coat grow full.

I attribute the "done up" look to the fact that the groomers must make a living!?

The hairstyles of the human officers in that article also seem to be following the rugged and natural look too! :lol:

Ah.. Merrie Olde U.K... The land that modern hair conditioners forgot!

I hadn't noticed the humans... Who notices people when there are cairns around? But I took a second look - and you are right, whits - especially the "poodle cut" on  Dr. E. M. Luis, ?but I will refrain from further snarky comments!

Great photos. I looked them over several times.

I watched "The Uninvited" today with Ray Millan and there was a Cairn Terrier in the movie named Bobby.  So cute and not trimmed/thinned to the ying yang like the show dogs of today.  His ears were nice and trimmed, but the body was shaggy and he was a face kisser!!!! So cute!!!!
