It all began with a beautiful puppy…
In October 2020, Poppy our Cairn Terrier turned 13. She has been an integral part of our family for over a decade and we can’t imagine life without her.
From the beginning she has been an independent spirit. Like most Terriers she prefers to “do her own thing”. Stubborn, willfill and determined, that’s just the way we like her.
I was pretty much #puttyinherpaws from the moment I saw her, but David, the disciplinarian in our family, was big on setting “The Ground Rules” …
- No dogs upstairs
- No dogs on the furniture
- No dogs in the bed
Poppy made short work of his first 2 rules. The battleground for the third remains – as she gets to snuggle on our bed for a little while before we go to sleep.
She’s a lovely dog, and gets on well with everyone, with the sole exception of Lola the Westie. She loves children and anyone who might be carrying a treat: they get the full experience of her considerable appeal.
Poppy and the wonderful Cairn Terrier community we’ve met online has been the inspiration for this website. We’re just getting going with this site, our goal is to curate a selection of products and gifts that will appeal to Cairn owners, reflecting the unique nature of these “shaggy-coated” wonders.
David and I spend most of our time at Sugar Web Services. We are lucky enough to work with a diverse range of businesses throughout the UK, and even one in Tuscany!
I indulge my love for jewellery and vintage homeware at Twinkleberry and David paints mini’s and restores books in his spare time. Together, we are keen cyclists and love nothing more than packing up our bikes and exploring other parts of the world on 2 wheels.
