MISS SKYE B IS TWO TODAY

She is also in need of a haircut! She is a Cairn Terrier and they come in several different colors. Skye is considered Red Brindle w/a black mask. Her mask seems to be getting darker but that could just be because she needs that haircut. One thing about the Cairn is that in the first four years of their life they could completely change color. She could actually become darker, more like Toto. I don't believe she will change color but you never know. It certainly wouldn't change how I feel about her. She is a huge blessing in our lives.


Just before Christmas when we were having several days of rain there was this one morning when she just didn't want to get up. I think she slept until like 11:00 am that morning. She is not a get up and go outside type of dog. (our Westie Maggie was like this) If she doesn't have to go you can't make her. She only pees twice a day, maybe three and she will ring her bell when she wants to go.

So anyway this one morning she had the funniest bedhead going on. Didn't help that she needs that haircut! Anyway she sat up, I went and grabbed my camera taking a few shots. She turned around, looked outside and went back to sleep!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS SKYE B. I LOVE YOU!

*******************

So after I wrote this post I was out in the kitchen telling my husband about it and I spotted the canvas I just received in the mail. I am going to post the picture that I put on the canvas. Skye would have been about two weeks from being 10 months old. Just look at the difference! She really isn't as dark as the above pictures show because I usually don't use a flash but her face/mask has really changed.



P.S. NEW POST AT DEBBY'S TREE TODAY!

Happy happy birthday to your darling Miss Skye!! So...she is a Toto dog!!! I'm watching his movie (and Judy Garland's) right now and will enjoy it more now that I know that your doggie is like the famous Toto. I think Toto is the first doggie I ever fell in love with, Lassie came in next and then Rin Tin Tin (I've had two of his kind!)!!
Blessings for many more birthday celebrations!

Happy Birthday, Skye! Debby, those are the cutest pictures. She looks absolutely adorable in her sweater amongst all the Christmas decorations and the bedhead pictures are wonderful!!!

Nanato4 said...

She's adorable! And wow, her mask really has gotten much darker!

Our dogs are getting older, and while DH says no more dogs, I'm wonder if a smaller dog like a Cairn Terrier (our 2 dogs are retrievers) would work better for us?

Happy Birthday to Miss Skye. She is beautiful!!! I have a fat dachshund who is like her, in not wanting to go out. He will go to the door, I will open it, and he will look at me and take two steps backwards.. . then run to the couch. :o) Enjoy your sweet baby Skye today... she is precious!

EmptyNester said...

She is so pretty! And Tucker thinks so too! LOL

We met a couple while walking and they have a sweet dog that I think is just like your Skye. I'm going to ask them next time. She and Tucker just play and play when we see them! What good natured dogs!

Oh. My. Gosh! She and Braxton must be soul-mates..he's the SAME way! The bed-head (and bed-face) and he will not move all day is someone is in bed with him..he would lovingly stay there all day. We sometimes have to FORCE him to go outside and just "TRY!"

Happy Happy Birthday to the prettiest Carin Terrier in the whole world..she's a cutie-patootie for sure!!
