Let me tell you about my dog, Finch! Finch is a Cairn Terrier. Many people don't know about this breed, but when I mention that "Toto" On the Wizard Of Oz movie, was a Cairn Terrier...they nod their head "ahhhh, yes! Finch is 4 years old but someone forgot to tell her! She acts like she is still a puppy. See the blur of her tail? EVERY TIME you look at Finch, her tail starts wagging. She is happy all the time....I wish I could bottle her energy and happiness....I'd be rich!!
Finch lives and breathes to play. Her favorite is her frisbee. The one pictured here is how the frisbee starts out. It's a little dirty, but it's intact. Finch loves to grab the middle of the frisbee and shake it. Eventually the fabric gives away and just the rim is left. Finch doesn't care....she just shakes that rim!

In this movie you can see what happens, over time, to her frisbee. It's also interesting to see how she carefully carries her frisbee. This video was taken last winter, after a big snow.

LOL That is so cute, Ames! It took her awhile to get the frisbee back to you, but she did soon enough. :-)

Oh my gosh, Finch is so adorable. You know, happy dogs are contageous. How can anyone who has one not be happy themselves? They just melt your heart and make you chuckle with their antics, if not laugh out loud.
