It's a Big Deal

... where do you suppose Demps and Els went?  Yup, directly to that barn door.

I'm always impressed with the "prey memory" of these cairns. We can retrace the same route 2 hours later, or 2 days after spotting a squirrel in a particular tree and Ruffy will make a beeline for it, scanning the branches overhead, excited and alert, hoping, expecting(?) the squirrel to still be there!:D

Having a little "hitch in his gitalong," as Steve calls it, isn't slowing Demps down. Oban is jealous - he has heard that irritating gopher whistle but never caught the gopher...

Good dog, Demps!

RIP, Mr. Gopher, but it's great to see Demps carrying on in classic Cairn fashion.  Love the muddy nose at the end.  :lol:

True to your breeding Dempsey....you must be so proud to protect hearth and home from those darn crop eating gophers!  Great job!:thumbsup:

Those Cairns are so smart....poor Teddy the lab lost the ball at the dog park (no one is ever at the dog park so wide open!)...Pepper watched where it went and sat there for a full 2-3 minutes and then bolted straight across and found the ball (a good long distance too!)  Teddy was still looking in the wrong spot!  I think Cairns are amazing!!!!
