Dekan (Cairn Terrier)
We would like to show off our Cairn Terrier, Dekan. It all started in February of 2008. My husband and I had been discussing buying a puppy. We researched the Cairn Terrier and decided that was the dog for us. We heard of Ed and Erla’s kennel by word of mouth. Sure enough, there was an ad in the paper a few days later.
We were going out for Valentine’s Day and decided we were going to go over just to look. When Ed brought him out for us to see, we immediately fell in love with him! The next evening we went to the pet store and bought all of the equipment and toys needed for a spoiled house dog. We were ready to go!
A few weeks passed and only days remained until we could bring him home. The night before we were supposed to pick him up, Erla called and had found something wrong with his left eye. As soon as she discovered this, they brought Dekan into their home to protect him from the other puppies.
Because the Martin’s are so loving towards their animals, they took him to the vet immediately. The vet found that he had a second eyelid growing underneath the first. Dekan was going to require surgery. As heartbroken as we were, we still wanted him. We will never regret that decision! Ed and Erla continued to nurse his eye back to health. During his recovery, they offered and even encouraged us to come visit him. In a few weeks, he was ready to come home. Dekan is a wonderful little Cairn and bustling with energy all the time. He has even made friends with the neighborhood goat!
Ed and Erla were very honest throughout the whole surgery situation, something you don’t find much of anymore, especially in the business of puppy sales. We will definitely be back in a few years!
