I am also a single working woman and have a four month old Cairn Terrier puppy named Jack. I crate trained Jack (which I HIGHLY recommend) but, like all puppies, Cairn Terrier puppies cannot hold their bladders for more than a few hours, so I came home at lunch every day to let him out and let him run around for a bit. Now that he is a bit older and (nearly) house trained, I have an indoor pen that I put him in that allows him access outside to potty during the day. As far as the breed goes being alone, he seems to have no problem. I am consistently amazed by how resilient he is. When I get home at the end of the day I am typically greeted with a sleepy yawn :) This is the first Cairn Terrier I have ever had, and I totally have fallen in love with the breed! They have so much personality! Good luck with your search for the right puppy!
