We had an Australian Terrier and a Cairn Terrier for 10 years. The Australian Terrier died of pancreatitis 2 years ago. The Cairn Terrier had never known life without the Australian Terrier and they were truly good "Buddies."
I can actually hear the two of them having the following conversation:
"So far, our barking has saved Mom and Dad from murder by 40 mailmen, 16 UPS drivers, 3 Girl Scouts, 28 Cats and 1 sketchy looking plastic bag on the road...........
and yet, they remain ungrateful!!!"
We live in the country at the end of a long driveway, and I NEVER felt unsafe when the two of them were with me. They put on a good act of being ferocious, but truth be told........they probably would have licked the intruder to death!!! I still miss the Australian Terrier every day.
