Two Special Cairns: Angus and Broady

In September Tom and Mimi Hilberg of San Diego lost a very special friend. Angus was a Cairn terrier they had acquired from Karen Smith in 1993. He lived to be 17 1/2 years old, and as you can see from the video above, he was still active in his later years.

Here is how they describe this very special Cairn:

"Angus had so much character and humor stuffed into such a small body! He had been our companion on numerous long trips in the USA, Canada and Alaska. He's been a smart, funny presence who endeared us to him in many ways.''

After their loss, Tom and Mimi contacted the CTCSC about rescuing a Cairn.

"Cairns are individuals with a special intelligence, attitude and sense of humor,'' said Tom and Mimi. "Now that we've lived with Angus we find that his absence leaves a hole only another Cairn can fill.''

No dog can ever truly replace such a special friend, but now they have adopted a new Cairn, Broady. Here is what they have to say about the new family member.
"Broady is open, happy, warm, active and funny. A real pleasure to know.''

Like many rescue dogs, Broady is wary of strange men, but they are working to get him acclimated to his new life and he is happy with his new family.

"We're hitting it off every way."
