He says ‘lazy’, he has no idea how much hard work it is on guard duty, checking out what’s going on outside, its a full-time job, and this time of year, the days are getting longer, don’t think I haven’t noticed, and that Beagle out there is taking some liberties, let me tell you…
Lazy Monday evening, whats a dog to do?
Because I just couldn’t resist. And he takes a pretty good picture by the tree.
We didn’t have the Christmas tree up last year, partly because it had been a bad year, what with losing Ben, and partly because we’d only had Eddie a month and we weren’t too sure if Westie pups have a knack for trying to pull trees down on a whim. So now he’s a year older and wiser, Ed has his first Christmas tree. Don’t think he’s particularly impressed, but he hasn’t tried pulling it down/grabbing at the ornaments just yet.
I rather think he reckons we’ve gone a little mad again. He’s used to his humans behaving oddly once in awhile. He’ll just humor us for a bit. Then see if he can get the damn monstrosity down on the floor and out of the way- there’s a natural order to things, and it doesn’t include having trees in the house.
Well, he seems a natural at it really. He certainly took a shine to Scotland and having his owners at his beck and call for two whole weeks. One long endless playtime with lots of forest walks and a trip to the beach thrown in. Even celebrated his first birthday whilst he was there- as if being spoiled wasn’t enough, he wanted a big birthday meal and a new soft toy to chase around too. Same again next year, Ed?
You’ll believe a Westie can fly… (aka Eddie decides that life’s a beach, etc etc).
