Fergus Birthday photos


Recommended Posts

What photogenic children! I live much further south than you, but we get enough

snow here that I can truly say Cairn Terriers are Snow Dogs. They love the

stuff. Thanks for posting the pics.

Looks like Fergus had a great day! Thank you for sharing!

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. And in return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made.

Now THAT's a birthday celebration! Look at how much fun they were having.

Did you have to "teach" Fergus and Tala to be together when they first met?

I usually don't jump back into a thread I started, however, Scully's Mom asked if we had to teach Fergus and Talah to be friends. The short answer is No. The longer answer is kind of a nice story.

Talah (I was told by my sister-in-law that I spelled it wrong) was adopted from the S.P.C.A. almost exactly one month after we got Fergus. Sis and her husband lost their dog to old age six months prior and our getting Fergus seemed to help them turn the corner to wanting another dog.

Talah had been abandoned in a rural park. It was believed that she had been there for weeks and was slowly starving to death. A kind soul finally lured her with some food and brought her into the S.P.C.A. kennels. A week later, she was adopted by the sister-in law. Talah certainly exhibited some scars from her ordeal and everyone agreed it was best we not introduce the dogs to each other until Talah became thoroughly comfortable in her home. A month passed and we decided to try the introduction. We kept both dogs harnessed and leashed, put Fergus on the ground near Talah and held our collective breaths. Now Fergus is usually very excited around other dogs (We're working on that) but that day he seemed to sense the need to be calm and gentle. The two dogs approached each other touched noses, sniffed and began to lick each other. They were instant friends. A few minutes later, the leashes were removed and they spent the next few hours running and playing. It was amazing.

The photos above are typical of the days they spend together.

Fergus :P & Alf
