Why Kids Need Pets



Fergie and her family live in North Carolina, where it's hot and humid, even in September! Lucky Fergie, her pet parents got her a swimming pool so she can cool off on hot days. She's a good swimmer, but even so she has her own "Louis Vitton" life jacket for boating or swimming in the neighborhood lake. Fergie is a Cairn Terrier. Cairn Terriers originally came for the Isle (Island) of Skye off the coast of Scotland. These little terriers are known to be frisky little bundles of energy with very few health problems. They are sturdy and tough and don't shed as much as dogs that have double coats. They are loyal family dogs and good with children if they have been socialized.
