survived the wreck of the Spanish Armada, swam to shore of
the Isle of Skye , and mated with the terriers living there
in North-western Scotland in 1588.

the dogs age in years, or at least have an approximation of
its age, but do you really have any idea how old it may be-
chronologically speaking? I'm sure you've heard of the old
"seven year theory". You know, the system where each year
of a dog or cats life is the equivalent of 7 of ours.

with no obvious parasite problem.

property will be there when you need it, but ownership of a
pet requires a different type of security measure. Because,
pets are living creatures with minds of their own, they
have a tendency to want to explore new things, and this
