Adopt Adorable Brandy Alexander, A Cairn Who Never Had Anyone to Love Him!


Meet tiny Alex, a  little Cairn boy with huge beautiful eyes and a little button nose! This poor little guy was a bit of a mess when he lucked out. Col. Potter Cairn Rescue brought him into their loving environment. He now romps around in his Pennsylvania foster home, and pals around with his doggie foster sibling. He has learned to trust and loves to sit on laps. He adores his little blanket under the table, and has learned to come when he hears his name.  He never barks. As far as teeth go, he doesn’t have any. This doesn’t stop him from eating up a storm.  This little five year old wheaten-colored sweetheart needs his own home  and his permanent person or people.


Here is a picture of this little sweet potato at intake :

Here is his profile on Col. Potter Cairn Rescue:

Why not fill out an adoption application form while you are there!  You should also note that the amazing Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Group will transport him to another location, if you are not in Pennsylvania.

You should also know that his name, Brandy Alexander, came from the Name A Cairn Program and was donated by Claire M. in memory of her wonderful collie. Here is the link to donate to this special program:

Blog Transforming and Might Take A Little Time


Matilda here. Mom and Michael my walker and best friend sat in front of the computer today and did many things that involved some clicking sounds, and funny words, like “Whaaaat?!!!!!!”, and “Helllppp!!!???”

Mom isn’t sure what is happening right now. For example, will you get this post? If you do, she wants you to be aware that there might be a lag between posts, and then the blog will look a little different. Oh dear, she just realized that she likes the way this looks. I hear her in the background making a funny little screamy-sound. She’ll be alright.

I will post a photo of my walker and Liv, Kes, and me.


A Tip of the Snout To Ya,



Adopt This Adorable Cairn Terrier Who has Been Released From a Breeding Facility

Equality 2 Equality 3Equality, (currently known as Izzie), is a wheaten-colored sweetheart who is finally getting to live a life of pleasure and leisure after being used for many years to breed. Her little face is angelic, and she has a bit of timidity, but she loves people and dogs. She has a gentleness to her, and is just learning to love having her belly rubbed. Sometimes you might see her rolling on her back in the grass to get a good back scratch, and hear her little feel-good groans.  She gets along with all six of the dogs in her foster home. Food is another favorite of hers.

I know that I would love to have her here in my home. It would feel so good to have this little cuddle-bug safe and sound and comfortable after all those years of having puppies.  She is currently in Arkansas, but the wonderful  Col Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue Group can transport her to your geographical area.

Check her out on their page and fill out an application form while there

Matilda’s Progress


Matilda is doing well. Her fur has a lovely thickness and fuzziness to it. Her face is calmer and more alive. She is a little debilitated in the leg department! Her arthritis and slight neurological impairment slows her down, but she remains dedicated to seeking out all people and dogs who are walking on the sidewalk near us.  She  is strong, and if she wants to sniff additional blades of grass,  she will not listen to me as I urge her to come, even if I pull gently on the leash.  That shows her determined spirit and appreciation of the finer things in life (sniffing and sauntering and making friends). Later, in the evenings, after her dinner, she stares at me intensely and then begins her campaign with little high pitched barks. She wants all kinds of treats. Last night she was able to get 9 treats! Sweet potato chews are a nice addition. There are many others.

Her love-interest, Coby, is doing well, but is still healing from his infection, and has not been able to get together for their post-chemo reunion. We will keep everyone posted.

Adorable, Fun-Loving Sean Casey Pitty Needs Home

ImageI had so much fun taking pictures of Erica, a one and a half year old pit bull darling, who has been at Sean Casey Animal Rescue since she was five months old. She was found wandering the streets, and has now spent her toddler-hood at the shelter, soaking in the love of all the care-takers. She is very loving and extremely affectionate. She was licking my hand, and I could see that she would gladly sit on a couch and watch tv with me, cuddling as close as she could get. She is also so playful, and would have tons of fun in the park, running around and being joyful.  Erica loves everyone, from dogs to children. I don’t know where you would find a better dog. Please, run or drive or bike or take the subway as quickly as you can to Sean Casey Animal Rescue at:

153 East 3rd Street between Ft Hamilton Pkwy and Caton Avenue

Brooklyn, 11218     you might also inquire via e-mail

or phone at 718-436-5163   They are open daily from 11am-7pm


Don’t let Erica spend one more night sleeping in the shelter. Give her the adoring home she needs.
