Welcome to Woodwynd Cairn Terriers Website

The dog who started it all!

CH. Lindy's Sonic Boom of KJ CDX NA RN CGC, Therapy Dog

aka "Boomer"

January 21, 1992-August 21, 2008

Boomer was..

Tenacious, confident, intelligent, tough, affectionate.
My first Champion.
The epitome of a Cairn Terrier taken to the utmost limits.
His performances in the show ring (good or bad)
were enjoyed both by the judges and spectators.
Don’t bother him with those placid rats at the end of the tunnel,
He only wanted the “real” hunt, the ones that fought back.
He was a big dog in a little body.
All who met him were drawn to his character.
The public adored him almost as much as I did.
He accomplished things that some “dog people” said couldn’t be done.
He would have accomplished greater things if my
road of life hadn’t been so full of holes.
He passed on his intelligence, attitude and
good looks to his daughter.
He taught students how good their dogs could be.
He taught students how to be better handlers.
He taught me more humility and patience then any human ever could.
He taught my son, Cody, invaluable lessons in life.
He comforted the people at the nursing homes.
He disciplined dogs that needed discipline.
He ruled the pack with an iron jaw.
He showed affection with the softness of a warm hug.
He hunted, swam, played, and performed with the zest of a terrier.
He guarded his home and pack with the determination of his Rottweiler buddies, Otis and Magoo.
He was my confidante, comforter and companion in life.
Even though his years were long, our time together seems too short.
Though many dogs have and will pass through my life,
he will always hold a place in my heart.
I know he will cross that rainbow bridge as he always was,
tail up, full of attitude and that spring in his step.
When it comes time for me to cross that bridge,
I know he’ll be at the front of the pack waiting for me
with his tail up and his bright eyes.
Thank you, Lord, for bringing this great little dog into my life.

been passed on to her offspring.  Cookies brother (Gus) and sister (Jemmy) won their
