yes! cairn-proofing the house is essential. ... baby gates …. electrical cords ...don't assume that what looks inedible to us looks inedible to them. 

GAD, how quickly we forget!

Electrical/computer cable covers...we placed these after she had chewed a couple of cords!

Katie decide to redecorate by removing all the brass tacks from our antique arm chair.

Last month I left my glasses on the coffee table...

Fear the cairn, stay vigilant!

What’s with their fascination for glasses! The first year of Sam’s life was dedicated to crunching 4 of my reading glasses!

OUCH!

Lucky these wwere my "second best glasses".

She snatched my Best pair from my night stand and scratched one lens...I wore that pair with the scratch in my vision for over a year before ordering frames with new rx. 

She is always cruising the coffee table and nightstands!!!

Good news is that she no longer jumps on the coffee table after we gave one toot with Pet Corrector.

Cheers!

Ah yes. Eyeglasses are a favorite cairn target..I think I have shared the photo below before. Oban did it, in his younger days.

I think I mentioned once that Oban chewed off the pocket of a pocket tee (where dog treats for walks were often kept) while Steve was still wearing it, taking a nap on the living room rug. (Deep sleeper, my DH.)

I think I posted this somewhere before but it deserves a mention here. Angus was sitting so nice and quiet on the floor beside my chair hooked on his leash while I chatted with a visiting friend. He was on his leash as still in the jumping on folks to greet them phase - especially when they were sitting. I felt so proud and happy as I chatted. All of a sudden a cairn leapt on my friend's chest alickin' and awaggin'. WHAT the ? How can this be? Then I saw part of leash hanging from his collar and the rest by my side on the floor. So easy for a cairn to chew through a cotton leash!!!

Thanks, now lets see if I can make it work. Testing, testing 😊

Could you give your old friend my address, please?    What a joyful ride he brought you.
