Ah, yes ... Corky's face looks much like my late little heart dog Leeo. I thought I saw Poodle in there. He is adorable!Corky is westie/poodle. The dog I had posted in the other thread, but since I already gave the answer I can say it here
Sandy is a Cairn Terrier
Mickey is a Mini Wirehaired Dachshund
Sorry to hear that Sandy is blind, but pleased to hear that he is a happy dog - cairns are such lovely friendly intelligent dogs. They also seem to be very adaptable and accepting - Hamish was with my parents until he was 8 then came to us after they passed away - he had known us but it was a very different lifestyle / environment for him and he was nervous for a few weeks but soon settled in. I read up on cairns when he first moved in but don't recall seeing anything about wheatens being more susceptible to health issues.People always ask me if Sandy is a Westie! Just curious, have you had a lot of health problems with Hamish?
Our poor little Sandy has Ocular Melinosis, which caused him to go blind when he was 6. He also has allergies in spring and gets itchy patches on his skin. I was talking with a breeder who said that wheaten colored Cairns are more likely to carry health issues.
While Sandy doesn't have arthritis, he did tear his ACL last year and it's recovered, but he doesn't walk the same way he used to, and probably never will. But he is a very happy little dog.
