Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - JoAn Watson Martin
The best-known Cairn Terrier in the world has to be Terry, the hero of Oz. She got her big role in the 1938 movie with Judy Garland, The Wizard of Oz. Cairn Terriers were bred in Scotland to catch rats, weasels, and foxes that stole people's food. With a topcoat of coarse fur and an undercoat of soft fuzzy fur they stay warm and dry. Before 1900 this breed was called Skye terriers. They come in different colors and are separated into four breeds: the Scottish terrier, the West Highland white terrier, the Dandie Dinmont terrier, and the Cairn terrier. A Cairn is a lovable pet, but this breed requires time and energy to raise. They respond well to firm discipline. In spite of their small size, Cairns are assertive and try to be in charge. Thus they make great watchdogs. Searl includes research on Cairn Terriers, qualifications for Best in Show, a glossary, index, bibliography, and online websites. Sidebars add to the factual knowledge of the little dog's history, its appearance, and its personality. Dunleavy located numerous, colorful action shots. If someone is planning to get a dog, this series is an excellent for making the decision as to which breed would be best. The series, "Little Dogs Rock II," spotlights six different breeds.
