Hi everyone! So happy to be part of Cairntalk. Meet...Ella!!! 

After loosing Banjo, in 2018 and Dixie his half sister in 2020...I wasn't going to get another dog for  a while. I still miss them so much. But as Covid came and stuck around, and our house became so terribly quiet....I am starting a new journey with a little love who we call Ella. She has some of the same bloodline as Banjo and Dixie which makes her even more special. She is like a hurricane at 12 weeks old, but a darling. She already sleeps thru the night. She keeps me busy in the yard with everything in her mouth as she has to explore everything. Stay tuned!!!

Hello Ella and Annie! What an absolute sweet wee girl. 💕🐾🐾 They are so goofy at that age...sort of a combination between a lamb and a wolverine.

Lots of puppy pics to come we hope.

Hello, Ella! 

She looks a sweet little angel who I'm sure never gets into anything she isn't supposed to! 😂

Congratulations on sleeping through the night! Hope potty training is going just as well!

Obviously you caught her in that photo in a rare quiet moment...otherwise we would only have seen a blur???

I remember those days -- such charm at that age -- and such sharp puppy teeth!

Enjoy. Nothing smells as good as warm puppy.

Ella continues to be like a little Tasmanian Devil and an angel when she ...is sleeping. I don't enjoy the puppy bites, they are mostly not hard but she has very sharp little teeth!! Only a couple little accidents in the house, but we mostly take her out every 2 hours.....wondering when she will "get it" on her own and ask for the door. Anyone remember the potty training event? Would appreciate any comments on this!!!

Personally I don't think of it as "an event" — like one day you don't know how to tie your shoes but once you do, you do and it's done.

I think of it more as a habit, like "exercise in the morning before breakfast" — I might try it once, fall off the wagon, try again, have a streak of success, fall off the wagon again, but one day, you're doing it more days than not until some day it's just become such a part of your routine you can't really remember when you didn't do it this way. Congrats, you're housebroken :) 

I'm, uh, still working on it :P

thanks......ahhh...yes, of course.  I am also thinking that carrying her outside should stop, and we just let her out the door, then she will maybe see the door on her own and realize ..o yes, I go pee outside....I'll hang around a bit and see if anyone notices to open the door.....I'm sure she will train me..in no time...

Hi Ella, 

You looks so cute. like butter wouldn't melt in your mouth. But we cairn owners know better don't we?!

Enjoy the lively future both of you.

Annie,

I have hung a bell by the backdoor for Beasley to ring whenever he wants to go outside. When I would carry him outdoors, I would "boop" his nose on the bell before I would open the door. I also would get him to touch the bell on his own and would treat him anytime he did. After a few times, I'd say "bell" right before he touched it and then treat. After a few repetitions of that, I would open the door as well. Now that I don't feel like I need to carry him outside I tell him we're going outside, but don't let him out unless he rings his bell. Sometimes I have to remind him by saying "ring your bell". He is very often ringing it himself, now, even when I'm not actively watching him. The first time I was loading the washing machine and heard the ring. It was so exciting when he ran out the door to do his business! I think it's really helped him express that he needs to go outside.

I hope it helps! If you Google "dog doorbell" you should be able to find videos and articles on training as well as links to products if you need to buy a bell.

Good luck!

Should be interesting. I think she is a smart girl (aren't all our babies) today we learned to "sit" with voice and hand signal

Thanks for all the tips!!!!

she's the funniest little girl. Can be quiet as a mouse. Then the vacuum goes on, and she becomes like a tasmanian devil!

she comes (when she wants).... or is indifferent. She seemed to outgrow a lot of the puppy behavior before our eyes....stopped biting feet when we walk, which is wonderful, became a bit quieter and doesn't destroy furniture and everything else in her path. I think I will still work on hand commands and of course the all important to me is having her not jump on people when they come. Thats hard...stay tuned!

What a fine looking pup. Sounds like everything is going the way to expect in a smart young cairn🙂

Love that photo at the top of the stair. She looks quite innocent and demure, but of course we know she is plotting world domination.

Is she now past the shark teeth stage? :)
