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).
Eddie gets out the tartan ready for his hol’s in Scotland next month. Don’t think he really understands how tiresome a 462-mile car journey is going to be for him, but we’ll leave that as a surprise, eh?
Can you imagine after 20 miles a dog barking ‘Arewethereyet Arewethereyet Arewethereyet’ with 440 miles still to go? I can hardly wait…
On a hot summer afternoon, there’s simply nothing else to do than find some shade and partake of a few ice-cubes from the water dish. And maybe find a twig to play with.
Westie General: My fear is that my sons will never understand me… Hao! Bark ye! We won again! [Cheers] This is good. But what is best in life?
Westie Warrior: The open field, food in my belly, sun in my face, and the wind in my hair.
Westie General: Wrong! Eddie, what is best in life?
Eddie (by way of Conan): To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their owners!
Westie General: [Cheers]…That is good.
(I’m in a very strange mood today, by Crom.)
Well, you can’t argue with photo’s like that. This Westie has got this household well and truly sorted.
