Jessy, Brindy, and Toto

See that cutie right up there?  That's Jessy.  Take a closer look.  Does she look at all familiar? She is a Cairn Terrier, a breed made really famous in 1939. 

 Yep, Toto was a Cairn Terrier.  Toto was also a female named Terry in real life, until her owner eventually changed her name to Toto as her fame spread.

Yesterday Hubs and I stopped at a small grocery store in a strip mall on the way home from visiting our mothers. Jessy was standing outside with her dad, Dave, and her sister Brindy, pictured below.

These girls were two of the friendliest dogs I've ever met. Their little butts were wagging at every passer-by, and I couldn't resist going to up meet them.

They both strained on their tandem leash to get closer to me, and I got a face full of kisses.

 Look at Jessy standing up to get closer to my face! Isn't she precious? Dave says as a puppy she was mostly gray/silver, but as she aged her coat got much darker.  Even her vet asked if she was the same dog!  BOL! (BOL means Bark Out Loud.)

Of course Brindy is a beautiful brindle color, and her ears are some of the cutest I've ever seen on a dog.


 If Yoda and Gizmo had a baby, the ears would look like this.

 Jessy complied with a request to sit pretty for a picture, but Brindy had too many fun distractions.

I'm not one to start conversations with strangers; I've always been shy in that regard. Dogs are game-changers though. They serve as an instant conversation-starter and through Jessy and Brindy I learned that Dave enjoys photography. He has a website you can check out if you'd like to see more pictures of these cute pups and other fun subjects too. You can find these pictures at or by clicking here.

These two girls are not rescues, but they are hometown dogs with a local dad so I decided to share anyway. After all. . . there's no place like home!
