San DiegoPet's Quirks
He liked foot rubs. He used to growl when anyone came near him as he ate.Pet's Story
Wally came to us as a rescue at the age of 4-5. As an older dog he came with his share of issues and we believed there wasn’t anything that a little love couldn’t handle. Eventually, after he felt secure, we would come home to be greeted by a dog who wagged his whole body? We gave him the middle name McWiggles, and called this curling, wagging behavior “the shrimp”. Wally LOVED the beach! He would whimper in anticipation as we crossed the Coronado Bridge. On the beach, he’d run figure eights in glee and run through the surf, only up to his belly, with ears laid completely back. He would be so covered with sand, we called him our little sand dab. Wally was a traveler, especially during the last few years of his life. He visited parks with us all over the West, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Sequoia and most recently Crater Lake and the Redwoods. He was a typical ornery, stubborn Cairn Terrier, but very devoted to us, and everyone he met just loved him. He went to the Rainbow Bridge this Aug. 7, at the age of 19-20. We loved him more than words could say.
