Julie has been wanting a dogJulie has been trolling the dog rescue sites as we’ve been traveling around. We took a day trip to Phoenix a few days ago to look at some small dogs. The dog had to be small enough to fit under an airline seat for air travel, be OK with an RV lifestyle, be OK with dogs, cats, and people. Be OK with long periods of meditation. Within minutes of entering the foster home for about 8 little dogs, one of them was up in Julies arms. Even as she looked and interacted with the dog we’d come to look at, Scruffy was close by. Unlike the other dogs, Scruffy was quiet and calm. While he ran around with the other dogs, he didn’t bark and often lay down on a free bed or snuggled up to another dog. As paperwork for a 2 wk trial was filled out, he sat quietly at Julie’s feet – almost like he knew what was happening.
Scruffy (a black/silver 1.5 yr old 7+ pound Cairn Terrier) is really changing my beliefs about small dogs. He’s very chill! He really wants to make friends with Faye Wray – but not in an aggressive way. Although they’ve sniffed noses a couple of times, Faye Wray is still not very sure about having Scruffy visit from his trailer.
So far the only negative thing I can find is that Scruffy is black and that makes it hard to get good photographs! Trust me – he’s exceptionally cute!
