Herbie is a 6 year old, male, dark brindle
cairn. He is very sweet and loving. He enjoys going for walks and walks
well on a lead. He tolerates baths and enjoys being brushed. He is in a
foster home with female cairns. Herbie would like a person of his own to
snuggle up with.
Herbie Update 11/14/2006
Herbie is doing great! We walk every morning in the park…..Sophie always
rushing ahead and Herbie stopping every three feet to smell the grass, bush,
tree, pole etc. He sleeps on our bed, at the foot, every night…doesn’t move
an inch….then moves to the top of the bed for a cuddle in the morning. He
loves to be a lap dog in the evening when we watch TV. He and Sophie have
fairly rambunctious wrestling matches, rolling around and chasing each
other, mostly playful, though he can be quite possessive of his chew toys.
My husband, who was a little hesitant about adopting another dog, has been
caught saying “two is better” and commenting on how cute etc. Mr. Herbie is.
He is getting fluffier by the day as his hair grows out from his pre
adoption hair cut. He has mastered the doggy door, generally comes when
called and is doing better with sit commands. He still widdles in excitement
at times when we come home or a guest arrives……but seems to be getting
better about not leaking. We find him altogether a delightful little dog!!!
Thanks for helping us adopt him…… We hope to get some nice family photos for
the holidays and will send some to SCR.
