How do y'all get your dogs to grin like that? My pup is a pretty happy little guy (I hope!) but I can't always get him to grin with the teeth showing. And when it actually happens, there is never a camera ready to snap a pic. :(

Christine, Petey looks so adorable with his new shirt!

Jan, Alfie's face is starting to get hairy, he's starting to look like a character from Star Wars!

I have been looking at a lot of Cairn pictures and none look like my little girl.

She is a owner release from a 92 year old lady.

She's 11 months old, weighs in at 11 pounds.

I've been searching to try and find out what to do with her hair.

I tries several times to add her picture but must be doing something wrong.

Her hair is thin with some under coat, tan with red roots (at this time)

I know she is in no way a show dog, looks nothing like the ones I've seen but she is a bundle of love and joy, and I just want her to look the best she can.

So any ideas out there on what to do with this Angels wild hair?

I think how much hair you leave on the head if you cairn is not a show dog is up to the owner. My husband likes Rebs hair pulled a little more than I do, but we both agree that you should keep the top of the ears and the hair around his eyes but I am sometime lazy about it. I comb is hair once a week and about once a month we do some stripping.
