Well it looks like our big guy Joey (gsp) is going to accept the little partner. Not too suprised as he lost his little buddy at the begining of November after years together. Piper behaves quite calmly around the big guy. Probably why he is accepting him.

They look the best of friends already!


It has often been said if you have a Cairn Terrier in your home for a year you will have one for the rest of your life

Joey and Piper will be best friends. It just takes some patience and time. Before too long they will be chasing each other around and playing together. When we were learning about Cairn Terriers, one of our concerns was how a Cairn would get along with our Golden Retriever. We were assured by a reliable breeder that Cairns tend to love big dogs. Her husband is a hunter and has had Labs right along with her numerous Cairns. She said they had never had any problems. We do keep an eye on Bear and his Golden Retriever brother, Oliver. Sometimes, they get a bit rough with each other. It seems strange to have to tell Bear to take it easy on the big guy, but at times, we have to do just that. Bear will get on top of him and grab Oliver's ears and just shack them. Oliver will get up and drag Bear still holding on to his ear across the room. :D Also, in puppy classes, Bear got along much better with the big dogs than the smaller dogs. Your Joey and Piper should be fine.

MAKE it a GREAT day!!! :)
