...no it's not a poo.




Meet Mr. Cheezle, a 3 1/3 month old Cairn Terrier. Well he's not a
poodle, but I think he is adorable and just a ball of hair. He's real
lively and kind of skittish, but I just recieved him so he needs time
to warm up to me.

My husband did talk to the vet though before getting him for me,
the vet said it was okay as long as we throughly cleaned our
house and such after the horrible events that took place and if
he already had his shots, we cleaned the house before even
bringing Scooter home and he has had his shots. :)

He's never going to replace Maddie and no dog ever will though. :(

He's very cute. I had a cairn, he was black, named murphy. I grew up wth terriers and love them. I have several clients that I handstrip their terriers, two of those are cains. Seeing that pic makes me miss Murphy. *Sigh* :)

He's a cute baby and good luck with him. Your in for it now MM! lol

He is gorgeous MM. But I dont like your vets advice.

A lady on the forum that Im on has a Cairn also. He is 7 mths old and fully vaccinated. He nearly died of parvo being on the grounds at a dog show. You cant be too careful with this desease.

Hers a link so you can read for yourself.

Thank you Siv. Quite honestly, I really dislike our local vet...
I mean I don't blame him for Maddie dying, who could?...but I
have my reasons. He's a dip s***.:banghead:

I read that link, it's absolutely horrible! You're right though, you can
never be to careful with this disease and I don't want to have to go
through that crap again after I get attatched to a dog.

EDIT: I just got back from the vet and bought two shots especially
for Parvo for Scoot and Mr. Cheezle. :)

There is a couple of things written on that thread that may help you in your home. Try using those products also. And as they said lime your backyard, anywhere Maddie was..... parvo is.

Parvo is a scary thing, as I know you know. That was my worst fear working at the vet clinic. We almost always had at least one parvo dog in treatment. Even though as a groomer I never touched those dogs it still terrified me. I was so afraid I'd bring it home on my shoes or something. You never can be to careful. Mr. Wonderful went for his first shots and I know that I irritated the whole staff but nobody except the doctor was allowed to touch him and he wasn't allowed out of the kennel except for his exam and I wouldn't let him even touch the exam table. Good thing I'm such good friends with my vet and they all understand. Earlier this year we almost lost a whole litter of puppies to an unknown virus that seemed similar to parvo but somehow wasn't. We were very lucky we only lost one. One of them spent two weeks in the doggy version of ICU and had everything from antibiotics to fluids to an emergancy blood transfusion. Horriable.

*Fingers crossed* that you never have to go through that, or anything else like it again.

aww congrats MM - I'm glad Scooter will have a playmate. No one can take Maddie's place though I agree - but the two boys will have fun. Looking forward to pix of them together. He is a cutie!

both of them to stay still together for even a split second...they are
both so lively and all over the place, lol!

AWWWWW! He is a cutey!

I bet Scooter is jealous! Don't worry he will warm up to him in time, if he is!

He is such a cutie I bet they will be playing together in no time!

How nice of your hubby!:high5:
