Ellie's coat is finally growing in well...


Recommended Posts

and it's looking really nice. We had had her clipped very short in October because she had gotten so matted, but now it's getting longer again, and she's starting to look like a Cairn again, not a rat! We're really seeing more of the lighter colored coat now, and a lot of almost wheaten hairs are showing. I got a guide for grooming Cairns, and I'm going to try keeping it in good shape so she doesn't get matted again. Here's Ellie with our Manx cat, Stubby.

She is gorgeous! Is she a black brindle?? I have been looking for a pic of one so I can see what my new lil' girl Gracie will look like. Thanks!!! :)

Oh, Ellie definitely knows she's a cutie. And she's so jealous! She can't stand to see anyone - or anything else get attention. If I'm petting the cat (Stubby, who is pictured), or my Scottie, she has to be right there in the middle of it, trying to hog the attention. She's even that way if I hug my grandkids (and boy, does she love the grandkids)!

No, I don't think Ellie is a black/brindle. Her coat is pretty much mostly black, though she does have the odd white hair showing here and there. But what's coming in now is almost reddish!

Yes, Cairns can get quite shaggy; their coats need combing to keep them from getting matted, and to keep dingleberries off their rumps!

Your Ellie and Gracie sure are cute! They look as though they are still puppies? Kinda funny, my next door neighbor has a Schnauzer named Gracie, and she and my Ellie love to run along the fence together.
