Chop chop

Just look at the state of me. The humans decided to get me 'done' and I think they felt a bit guilty about it after as they bought me this Teddy.

I got my revenge by pulling Teddy to pieces the very next day, tee hee.

Teddy's demise

Oh Luca, look what I did to Teddy that you sent me when I first came home.I don't know what came over me but I thought I'd have a little chew, followed by a slightly bigger chew. Then I just decided to go for it, off came his ears, then his arms, then his legs, then his innards......... I do feel a little guilty.........

But boy was it fun at the time.

The humans' chucked Teddy in the bun, I don't know why they couldn't just piece him back together again!!!!

Guinea dog or doggy pig?

Well look at this, a nice new home for me. Do you think it's a little small for me though? I do like to climb in and eat all the piggy poo, not to mention a good munch on the straw..

Hey this is FUN FUN FUN. The humans took me visiting the other weekend, to the female human's sister, and a little mini human nephoooo, or something like that. He was only a little taller than me. But what fun he was, and how many toys he had, way more than me!!!!

We had such a good time together, who would have thought that mini humans would be so much fun, he gave me biscuits, ran up and down the stairs with me, shared his Postman Pat van with me (I had a really good chew of that) and then he jumped on this here toy while I sat on it. I must admit to starting to feel a bit seasick by then but hey, a dog doesn't complain about these things does he?

One other good thing, the female human's sister had biscuits for the humans, but they kept dropping the crumbs on the floor. No need for the hoover said I, a furry hoover is here at your service, crumbs cleaned before they can hit the ground.

I like this visiting lark, I hope we go again soon.

Haircut 100

Well will you lookit the handsome one in this picture? One minute I have more hair than you can shake a stick at and the next I'm shorn the sheep!!! The humans decided the British summer was finally here and thought it might be a bit too hot for me underneath all that thick furry coat that I was wearing.

A nice lady came to visit, I got so excited I did a little wee *blush* She disappeared back to her car and I thought I'd put her off, but she was soon back with some very odd 'things' she called them 'table' and 'clippers'.She put me on 'table'and made a bit of a fuss of me, then flicked a switch on 'clippers' and they started to make a weird noise. I didn't like that at all and tried to escape. She switched them off and made a bit more fuss of me, then let me sniff and lick 'clippers'. I decided they weren't so bad after all and let her carry on with what she wanted to do.

Next came 'scissors. I stayed VERY still as she brought them near to my ears and eyes. I thought if I moved she might chop me a new shaped ear!

I was taken upstairs for 'bath' after the haircut, the humans said the water was running brown off me, I didn't think I was THAT brown, anyway, us dogs don't want to smell like girlies do we? These humans just don't understand about dogs and 'bath' do they? I got my own back, when the female human took me for a walk the next day I made sure to roll in every scent I could find over the park, hopefully I found a couple of really stinky ones to keep me smelling doglike.

I think I looked better with my scruffty coat, but I must admit I feel a lot cooler this way, and the girlies over the park seem to think I'm rather a handsome chap lke this. The humans said I looked like a puppy again, what do you think?

Rugby mad

I guess most dogs like playing ball. Probably usually a football but the male human here has decided I should be like him and prefer rugby. They gave me this ball when I first came to live here but it seemed so big I thought I would just bark a lot at it. They put it away but rediscovered it the other day. Now I'm bigger and have great big gnashers I loved it. I spent half the afternoon playing with it, in between chewing on the gazebo curtains when the humans weren't looking!!!

The male human said I had punctured the ball, well he can always go and buy me a new one can't he?

A walk in the woods

The humans took me on another day out, this time to the forest. I loved it, all those trees, and all those different things to sniff at too. We took the long route, but the female human got a little tired so we cut off half way. Only trouble is we took the longer way by mistake. The female human said we were lost but the male human would not admit it, he said we were geographically embarrassed! Us men don't like to have our navigation skills under scrutiny do we?

I was quite happy to carry on walking, the humans had a drink with them for me, what more could a little doglet want?

When we eventually got back to 'car' the humans had a hot drink and an eccles cake that the female had made, I got a chewy, something seems little unfair there don't you think?

Grass rolls

The humans took me to a place called Brightlingsea yesterday. It was a bit hot for a furry four pawed dog really so I made sure to stop every other pawstep just to show my protest. I soon hurried up when they mentioned the words 'chip shop' I always get a sausage when they get themselves some chips. Sure enough after waiting outside patiently (why wasn't I allowed in?) The male human came out with chips, curry sauce and of course the long awaited sausage. Yum.

We stopped in at the church yard on the way home. I found some long grass nearby and thought I'd have a little roll in it. The humans say I'm stinky now, I think I smell quite nice actually.

Seven swans a hissing

Now I'm known for my penchant for bird watching but this one is a little scarey. I did try to make friends with a couple of them but I got hissed at for my troubles. Not a good day all round on the friends front in fact. The humans took me to a place called Mistley, I thought it should have been renamed Swanley as there were at least 30 thousand of them there, or something like that. I can't count actually so that's just a guess!!!

Apart from the less than friendly hissy things I also met a twin of mine, must have been my evil twin though as he barked and snarled at me. I backed off very quickly. I guess not every Westie is as friendly as me eh?

I did meet one friend near the end of the walk, a lovely old lady, who clearly fell in love with me, she asked where I had been all her life, well with a line like that I rolled over and let her stroke my furry tum. She had obviously had furry friends before though as when I tried the 'jump up and annoy them' trick she was having none of it and pushed me straight back down. I do like a dominant woman so I obeyed.

After all that excitement I decided to have a chewy and go to bed as soon as we got home, night night. xx

Toy box

Don't you just love toys? The humans put all mine in this big box, then open up and let me decide what I want to play with. Their magazines are in there too, sometimes I have a sneaky chew on them while I'm choosing.

I couldn't decide what toy I wanted last time so I thought I'd jump in and sit and contemplate the matter further.

Guinea pups

Well looky here. My good friend Raffy the guinea pig seemed to be getting a little wide around the middle of late. Now I didn't like to say anything, you know how these girls are about their weight, but I have to say, her bum definitely did look big in that!!!

Anyway, July 4th I had a little nosey in her cage as I usually do when the humans are feeding her, and there were all these mini guineas, 6 in all. Whingey (the supposed dad) was in the other part of the hutch, looking very uninterested and denying all responsibility. Why, he even went off and got himself installed in a little batchelor pad the very same day. Raffy is left holding the babies and not knowing how she will afford to keep them all in straw and carrots!

I'm enjoying watching the babies scuttling about, they move very quickly so I had to be quick getting these shots. Alright, the humans got them, but I helped by sticking my nose in the cage at the same time.

Identity crisis

I just did a quiz and the results are rather disconcerting

You Are a Boxer Puppy
Energetic, playful and good with kids.You've also got a wild spirit that can't be trained or tamed.

I'm sure the humans said I was a terror. Hmm, maybe I have a split personality.

I got a friend

This is me with my new friend Vikki. My female human went off for a little while and came back in with two friends, one for me and one for her. Well I was so excited I just didn't know what to do with myself. My new girlfriend seemed a little less keen on me than I was on her, but I think she was just playing hard to get. Mind you, she is a bit of an old girl compared to me. In fact, don't tell her I referred to her in such a way but she is a pensioner. I didn't mind though, I was still happy to give the old girl a kiss. I must have a thng for the older woman.

Bad fur day

Fur goodness sake, those humans seem to like to go out on the windiest days. I'm sure as soon as the male human hears the weather forecast for either rain or wind he plans a little expedition. Here I am in a place called Brrr, or Old brrrrr, something like that anyway. This was the result of all the rain, then being towel dried and finally wind blown!

I don't know, fur, you can't do a thing with it can you? How's a boy supposed to look his best for all those lovely females he meets on his walks?

Day tripping

Do you like to go out on trips? At first I really didn't think much of car and lead but now I get so excited when lead comes out of the drawer. Here's me on one of our first car picnics. We went to the seaside so that we could watch the waves as we ate. Once I'd had my dinner I decided to get myself a better viewpoint than the back seat and climbed up onto the parcel shelf. I saw lots of cars go by. I just love people watching so amused myself until the humans were ready to take me for a walk. When we got back in the car they made me belt up on the back seat again, I'd have liked to travel back in style on my little parcel shelf.
We've been on a couple of car picnics this week. Yesterday the female human queued up to get us some chips whilst the male human and I waited outside, it started to pour down, you should have seen me. Soggy doggy and a very bad hair day! I was in a grump for the rest of the day. I did get a lovely sausage from the chip shop though, that cheered me up just a little. We had to eat in the car again, it was that or soggy chips! Today we had a drive out, and managed a walk and picnic outside, it was quite funny though,as soon as we got back in the car it poured down yet again.

V.E.T spells OUCH

If you were greeted with this cute face would you want to subject the furry body to a nasty experience? No I thought not. These humans decided it would be a good idea to take me to V.E.T. Have you ever been? Not a nice experience at all. You go in, everyone is all smiles, then you get called into a little room, where there is a scarey human in a long white coat (I don't know why as it's not particularly cold in there.) My first visit started well. V.E.T gave me biscuits, always a good idea, then I got a little stroke, I was just starting to enjoy myself when OUCH, something sharp JABBED me. What on earth was that? It seeemed to be coming from V.E.T. I was not a happy doglet at all.

Next time I had to go I was wise to this JAB thing and kept my furry bottom firmly on the table, and my furry head in V.E.T.s direction at all times. Ha, that fooled them. Until the biscuits came out and I forgot, OUCH, another jab.

Be warned fellow dogs. V.E.T. is not to be trusted, even with biscuits in their hands they are just waiting to jab you as soon as you are distracted.

It's a dogs life

Look, hard evidence that human's are lazy and get
their furry friends to do the house work. I had only been here 5 minutes and they were teaching me to sweep the floors!

Actually, they tried to fool me, they would push the brush right up into my bedroom, with me following, and quickly close me in. I wasn't falling for that trick too many times so came up with a little trick of my own - I would pretend to be interested in helping, and follow the brush all the way to my bedroom gate, then stop and refuse to go further so they couldn't shut me in. Tee heee hee.

Birthday 'paw'resent

Soon after I came to live here it was the female human's birthday. Actually I was her birthday present, a slightly early one but better early than late I say. Anyway, I thought I should get her a little something from her favourite furry friend. I got the male human to take a photo of me, upload it to Photobox, and have it made into a very cute keyring. Actually you got 3 keyrings, so all the human's got themselves a little present. This is the moment I handed the pressie over. I might have myself printed onto a mouse mat for Christmas, what do you think?

Are you sitting comfortably...

I decided quite soon after I came to live here that I'd teach the humans how to feed me treats when I did something cute, I started them off with me sitting, as that's the easiest one. They were very pleased with themselves. I have no idea why, I did all the hard work, all they had to do was hold the treats. After a couple of weeks at home not only could I sit for a treat but I thought I'd show off a bit and will sit while they prepare my food, and before I let them open the door to the garden for me. Oh, and before they put the dreaded chain on for 'walkies'. Well, someone has to have some manners around here don't they!!!!
I do a very nice, 'down' and 'wait' that sometimes gets me a tasty piece of sausage, all you other dogs should try it, just look at the human in that special 'sorry for myself' way, and the human will be putty in your paws.

Tired little legs

The trouble with being so small is your energy
levels run out way before your sense of mischief does. There I am, running along, chewing various moving ankles (and boy do the humans LOVE that game- they cheer and run and shake their legs, generally joining in the fun and making it much more interesting for me) anyway, where was I? Oh yes, there I am running along enjoying myself when all of a sudden my furry little legs wont go any further and I have to have a quick snoozelet. It's most annoying as I'm sure I'm missing out on mischief making. Oh well, I sure make up for it when I wake up! My favourite game when I first came to live here was to attach my furry jaw to the teenage human's work trousers and she would take me for a little drag along the hallway. I'm sure she loved it as much, if not more than me. Sometimes I still have a little game of it with her, just for nostalgia sake you understand.

I'm in chains

Okay I admit it, I was a bit of a wuss at first. They started off putting a bit of material round my neck, my NECK I tell you, what would you do? I decided to grin and bear it, but then they went even further and decided to click a bit of rope on to it and dry and drag me around with it! Why? It's not as if we were going anywhere interesting, up and down the hall, and then in the back garden. I mean, I do like the back garden but only when I can go where I like, not where they try and tell me to go.

Now it's a different matter, I'm allowed out in the big wide world, although at first I didn't think much of that at all, they'd chain me up, carry me out to 'car,' tell me to be quiet when I tried to provide in car entertainment (well it was better than the catterwauling coming from that CD thing they had playing.) THEN, we'd get somewhere that looked a little interesting, they get me out of 'car' walk along for what seemed like 3 seconds and say it was long enough for my little legs!! I'd only had a sniff or two of lamposts and people's legs. That's not long enough to even start being fun is it? They pretended they had been advised not to walk me too far when I was young, personally I think they just couldn't handle long walks and late nights.

I get all excited when I hear the humans going into my drawer now, I always think they are getting 'lead' out, they think I can't hear it but I always come rushing from wherever I am. Walkies is great fun, why, only the other day I met a potential girlfriend, cute little thing she was, shame I got so excited that I had a little accident right next to her. Her human did not look impressed with me at all, I saw her again yesterday, bit more embarrassing this time, I was leaving a little message. Next time she walks past I shall be ready for her. I'll be leaning all casual against the wall as she walks past, she wont be able to resist me then. I'm just too handsome for my own good really.


This is one of the toys that was waiting for me when I got to my new home. I remember the humans worried it was too big for me. I soon got my furry little chops round it though. It's not
one of my favourites though. I do like squeakies, I like to walk down the hall squeaking them as much as possible, that way everyone knows exactly where I am. The humans seem to like the noise almost as much as they did my singing in the car that first trip.
Some of my squeaky toys have lasted quite well, others have died a very quick death, yesterday I dragged the female human to the pet shop to buy me a new toy, well she would only let me look at the 'cheapos'. I thought I would show her what bad value for money they were. Today I brought it to her, 'look mum, this one has lost it's squeak already, tssk, these cheap toys are a false economy really Maybe you should get some more money out of that furry purse for me and splash out a bit!'

I don't think much of this 'bath' lark

Eeek, now this is NOT fun, what on earth were they thinking of? I go and make myself look lovely in the garden, making sure to get that lovely mud in every paw, and all over my fur, and they fill up this funny sink thing and try to persuade me it'll be fun to get in, who are they trying to kid. Never mind, I do a mean shake once my fur is wet, they weren't laughing so much after that, I was though, tee hee hee.

Diggity dawg

My Human decided to dig out a plant I had tasted, I thought I would help him! The spade was a little big for my paws though! The humans said I was very dirty and made me go in 'bath'. I thought I looked quite cute in brown!

Coming home

When we got to my new home my humans let me out of 'jail' and showed me my new bedroom, it was rather nice, and I had a present waiting for me from my new dog friend Luca, he's a big boy, an Alsation. He sent me 'Teddy' who is my favourite toy, and who sleeps with me every night. I admit to sometimes not being as nice as I should to Teddy, his ears are in a very sorry state where I have a little chew of them. Teddy is a placid sort though and never bites back.

5 weeks old

This is before I came home, just after I'd chosen my humans actually. I thought I might as well get myself a photo. I kept licking my new humans, I thought they'd like to smell a bit more doggy.

Cute or what?

Aw, wasn't I the cutest little dog? This is me on my first day at my new home. I was only just 7 weeks old and had decided to explore the room the human's call 'the front room' They had bought me lots of toys, this one is a tiny teddy and when they came to pick me up they threw him in the plastic 'jail' they had brought with them, well me being a trusting sort of dog I dove right in after mini ted, and my new mum closed the door on me. How cruel can you get?

Then they all stood around talking about 'car' as I whined to be let out. I got them back though. When we got in 'car' I decided to treat them to some of my best singing, they loved it- I saw them glancing at each other with ever more rapturous faces, or at least I think it was rapturous faces, I'm not too good at telling between that and a grimace really!!! Anyway, after a while I was so exhausted I fell asleep, before I could get to the end of my lovely song too.
