Hi, we are Abby and Elmo, a Terrier Twosome!  No one seems to know exactly what kind of terriers we are but we’re pretty sure we’d never have made it to the Westminster Kennel Club!  We’re 11 yrs old now so we’re passed worrying about our pedigrees!  In our youth we might have been a little too hard on squirrels but these days we don’t really mean any harm when we chase.  We’re slightly past our prime so mostly we like to walk, sniff around and enjoy whatever smells we can still pick up!  And, we can totally relate to folks who like to chill and put their feet up.  Relaxing has become our favourite  pastime too.


We’ve never really been dog dogs if you know what we mean.  We definitely prefer the company of two legged friends.  The four legged variety are ok but some of them get a bit too pushy.  We might have big attitudes but we don’t have big bodies!  Maybe we’re control freaks, but we don’t put up with others getting close to us.  We just start growling ahead of time (Elmo’s job) to let them know to stay away.  If they don’t get the message (sometimes its the people who don’t get it) our protesting can become quite urgent!  Elmo would gladly throw himself in the path of danger if it meant thwarting an attack!  Sometimes, he wants to attack them!  Good thing he’s fairly small and easy to divert!  Obviously, we don’t ever do dog parks.  The good news is we can overcome our fears in the security of our own home and are quite friendly and hospitable if other canines come to visit.


We are “home alone” way too long these days so we need to find new humans who are home more often.  Our people are away about 10 hours each day and they’re too busy to give us much attention. At our age we need a little TLC now and then - everyday would be perfect!  Abby could spend the whole day on someone’s lap!  Elmo has short bursts of energy and would like to play a little ball with someone.

Well, as you can tell, we aren’t perfect and we aren’t getting any younger but between our frequent naps we’re still active and willing to cuddle on the couch anytime!  If you are looking for friends to share couch time please let us know.  We are a package deal.
