Westie thought for today...

It's not a pretty thought..imagine a life without a Westie? It's too painful. The joy and companionship they offer can't be beat!

Oh happy days! Today Mom Beanie & I went to a homecoming to our breeder's house! We went on a scary walk in the haunted woods! And ate yummy snacks...The best part? Seeing old friends and making new ones! Mom Beanie saw an old boyfriend of hers and wow was she happy! It was clear they still have feelings for each other. Some may say ugh, they are just dogs, but it was obvious they treated each other differently. He's not my dad, but that's ok, I'm just glad Mom was happy!! I say my aunt, my cousin, and more! They are such a loving family and my human mom got so many Westie kisses she had a hard time leaving. And of course, here I am flirting with a real cutie pie...So
rry I'm blocking her!

Veterinary rip-off

At my last medical appointment, mom had my toenails trimmed, as I can get fidgety.  They did a great job holding me.. I didn't get mad at all.   So mom scheduled both of us to get our nails done there.  There's a very nice lady that is easily frightened when I grumble; she works at a local pet store, and charges just $7 each.  But we didn't want to scare her, so we went to the vet for a mani-pedi.  After all, last time it was $12.50, which is more than the nice lady, but oh well.  So we went this morning...and after our nails were done, mom was told, "That will be $50 plus tax."  Mom almost fell on the floor. The girl who works there said it is $12.50 when you already have an appointment with the doctor.  So when you go in before the office opens, and never see a doctor, you pay DOUBLE the price.  After all, you walked in the door. can imagine the words swirling around the car on the ride home.  B****rds. Unprofessional.  Rip off.  How could they?  Some F- Sh- D words.  Need a new vet.  $50 could get a full groom.  I'll do it myself (my least favorite.).  Well, hope you all had a better day than us!  Hope you all love your vets!  Hugs!

Grooming: What Is It Good For?

Grooming. Practically an everyday occurrence in the life of a Westie.  Who benefits more, me or my human? It's super humid out there, and ok, I've got a few mats on my belly.  Human mom brushes me daily, but I am protective of my belly. Keep out! Unless I am in the zzzZone, let me be! When I sleep I give you my belly to rub. I digress.  So down to the basement I just went, despite my best efforts to hide.  I was nice and fluffy at my elbows..apparently that's a no-no.   Mom went at it with several instruments straight out of a scary movie.  Once I was old enough to realize when I don't sit still, she can't do so much, I squirm every time. Haha!  Then I just went out to take a you-know and...ok, ok, I get all goofy when I am done getting fixed up.  Ok, so I show off a bit. Is that bad?

Some pictures from the show:

Fun times

Fun times this weekend at the NJ specialty show! Omg saw such beautiful dogs! Gorgeous Westies ( but mom Beanie beats them all hands down)...and I saw a brindle Scotty, stunning Samoyed in a stroller (I want one), Shelties, Labs, Poodles, and more! Mom had fun too.  We met other Westie lovers, and one family ready to get a Westie of their own! I had so many kids play with me I was in heaven.  See y'all next year!

Hello furiends! Duncan's mom here, had to hack in & post the video below...You may recall that Duncan posed in a tux some time ago, and he & Beanie love to eat chicken. So, without further adieu, Fifty Shades of Chicken....(published by Random House, on sale at your local bookstore!)

Good morning, Furrriends!
This is Duncan's human here.  And I have to say, there is no human that can compete with a Westie snuggle. I don't care how good looking a person is; how kind; or how successful. Humans are emotional Roombas.  They can't offer the consistency that a Westie does. Last night, Duncan and Beanie were both curled up next to me and I thought, wow, people don't bond like this.  What a beautiful thing, to be in a pack, have the support and companionship it offers.  And I am part of that pack :-).  I've seen Duncan grow to love his mom, they can sleep with foreheads touching or legs hanging over and no one complains.  They don't block my half of the bed from each other, they share it.  And Beanie looks out for Duncan when he is super-friendly with strange dogs; she goes into guard mode.  No one can mess with him when she's around.  That kind of chivalry has sort of dwindled over the years.  People can learn a lot if they observe dogs.

Yes, furiends, I am a dog with certain sensitivities, with compassion, and empathy.  Mom & I sat on the couch curled up next to Human Mom while she watched The Help for the 3rd time.  And yes I watched too.  I can certainly appreciate the good and the bad when it comes to women's issues, or those of race, family, and the struggles of a society that continues to contend with gender bias and other awful discrimination.  So many problems, no simple solutions.
Join me in wishing my human brother a speedy recovery, his heart is struggling to overcome a loss of sorts. Luv u J, think peace!
