in loving memory of Dan and Barbara Jessup
The Hyena got her name for her spirited and over the top prey drive as a pup. While she did calm down with maturity, into a sweet natured but still competent hunter, the name stuck.
"Hi" as she is called is my last direct Wee Mikey pup, and as such much treasured. She inherited all of his good traits such as fabulous temperament and fantastic hard, weather-proof coat. From her mom she got great health, sweetness, and a very correct structure from her maternal grandsire, an AKC champion.
I am currently purchasing a male that I think will match up well with Hi when her time comes to contribute to the family line. Hi is of correct size for a cairn; small but mighty.
I am considering showing Hi in the conformation ring UNSTRIPPED, so judges can see a correct, undoctored cairn coat. It should be interesting!

"The DanBar Type"...
Every serious breeder is breeding toward their dream of producing a "type" of dog which will make their heart go pitty-pat!
In my case I put emphasis on correct size and shape paired with a bold, friendly terrier attitude. My personal goal is to produce CORRECT, workman like cairn coats - something quite rare today.
TOP UPPER LEFT: This is The Hyema's mom, "Wee Scottish Pagan, a Wee Mikey bitch out of Twizzle. A stunning girl.
TOP UPPER RIGHT: AKC Ch. Higgin's Chekov, Wee Pagan's grandfather.
BOTTOM: This is son of AKC Champion Teddy Bear McGreen, DanBar Wee Jeckle. Wee Jeckle is The Hyena's sire. So, "Hi's" grandfathers on both sides are AKC Champions.
