Thank you Dogster for this honor! You made my day! And, thank you to all my pup pals for all of my pretty rosettes and special gifts. I feel so special!

For those of you who watched my "scary steps video" you will know that I was too afraid to walk up the steps to my doggie house on my own. Mommy had to help me but today I was a big girl and did it on my own! Mommy was so proud of me!
Guess what? Mom got it on video tonight too. But she cheated a little...she put a treat on the top so that I would climb up as she had the video camera cued. That's OK, more treats for me! I still did it with no help - training wheels off!
Catch ya later,

As many of you know, we belong to Dogster group, "Westies Unite". This weekend they held their 2nd Annual Meet and Greet. It was a two-day event taking place in NYC and in Westchester. There were about 30 Westies that took part in the events that made their way from Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Though our Westies Unite's friend, Caffrey, was unable to join us from England, his Mom did! Wexford and Sofia had the time of their lives!!!!!!!!!!! They were SO well behaved, I was so proud of them. Wexford walked around like he was the park security - sniffing, peeing, and relaxing in the shade. He was also fascinated by the Westie wannabees that were there (Yorkies, Malteses and Papillons). Sofia found two pups that she liked to hangout with, Maple and Maggie Mae. Though Sofia was moody at times with Maggie Mae (some growls here and there while they were on leash), they were pretty much inseparable.
On Friday night there was a Pre- Meet & Greet held at the dog park in Ossining, New York. The humans BBQ'd and some of the dogs met. The next morning started quite early catching at 6:45 am train into Grand Central Terminal with the hopes of making the today show. We were there outside but could not get in close enough but we still had a blast. Westies lining the barriers and many tourists opting to take photos of the cute LWD's. Then we headed to Fishbridge Dog Park alongside the Brooklyn Bridge. This was the perfect little, cemented, fenced area with lots of shade. The dogs got to know each other a little better here and met a couple of friendly pugs here too. Then it was off to the South Street Seaport for some shopping and lunch. We found a cute little doggie boutique called "The Salty Paw" and had lunch at an outside cafe with the dogs. After lunch we headed to the piers where we all boarded a schooner and toured NYC for two hours - it was something I will never forget. Twenty or so Westies on a cruise! What a sight. We docked at 5pm and made our way to Stone Street for dinner. This street is lined with outdoor seating for various restaurants. We all enjoyed the rest and good food. It was now time to make our way back to Grand Central to catch the train back to Westchester. Before doing so we walked around Times Sqaure with Caffrey's Mom. This is something I never pictured Sofia and Wexford in the center of - but we were there and they did great amongst the crowds and crowds of people. Their whites coats, now grey, showed that they were true New Yorkers!
Sunday morning would start our 3rd and final day of the M&G. We arrived at the Ossining Dog Park just after noon. The humans enjoyed some lunch as the dogs ran around and cooled off in the kiddie pool. Mr. Maggie Mae built beautiful wood bleachers with Westie cutouts on them! Ten bleachers in total would seat the Westies for a group photo. There was also an auction held to benefit Westie Rescue - where we raised $1,250.00! Since the Westie benches were so beautiful, we decided to auction those off at the end as well. We won one of the ten and we now have a nice momento of the weekend. We finally got home at about 4:30 pm on Sunday and the pups were pooped to say the least. I think they were happy to be back home but I know that they already missed all of their new friends, too.
We hope you enjoy the photos from our Westie M&G weekend!
