The Cairn Terrier is an old and ancient breed of Scotch Terriers that was only developed a separate breed in the 19th century and distinguished from its other Scotch Terrier brothers by coat color. The ancestor of the Cairn Terrier, the Scotch Terrier, was first described in 55 BC by the Romans who identified the small dogs as agile hunters that went to the ground after their quarry. The Romans named these dogs Terrarii, which is Latin for workers of the earth. Over several centuries, the Terrier group lived and thrived as earth dogs in Scotland and England, making their way to France and parts of Germany as well. By the 1900s, the Cairn Terrier was firmly established as a wire-haired small Terrier of the Skye group in various colors, accepting white, which was designated for its cousin breed, the West Highland Terrier. The Cairn is often confused for the Scottish Terrier, but the Scottie has a more diverse genetic makeup, having a large gene pool history whereas the Cairn Terrier was limited the Isle of Skye. The Cairn acquired its name from the stone monuments of the same name the little Terrier was known to hunt. The Poodle is a favorite breed that includes three sizes, toy, miniature, and standard. The Poodle is a German dog whose name is derived from the German Pudel, which indicates this dog’s love for sloshing around in puddles of water. Though the Poodle is of German descent, the breed was officially developed in France during the 15th and 16th Centuries. The toy and miniature varieties shortly followed the standard. The Poodle was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1886 but did not enjoy popularity in the United States until after World War II. Following World War II, the Poodle rose in popularity to the number one spot and remained there for 20 years. Today the Poodle is still a popular breed and is an increasingly popular choice for hybrid dogs.
