Arrival Story:
Finn came to us through Westie Rescue. He came from a puppy mill in Pennsylvania. This is his story before he joined our family: Finn’s WestieMed History We found out about Finn through a Westie Rescue email a few days before Woodie died, but nothing was known about him or the 4 adults coming with him. A few weeks after Woodie died I met Finn at a Westie Fun match in Maryland. He was an adorable little spitfire as he ran across the show ring and I ran to catch him. I inquired about adoption and his health was still questionable and when he did get better, they had a home in mind for him. I kind of forgot about Finn and our puppy search wasn't going well as I had hopes for a Westie puppy before Christmas. It seemed January was our best case for getting one from a breeder. On 11/26 I got an email from Finn's foster mom inquiring if we were still interested in adopting a puppy - specifically Finn! On that Thursday we took Rook and Skyler out to Ann & Phil's house in Maryland to meet him. It went well and we fell in love with the little guy. After several emails, Ann & Phil delivered him to our house on 12/3 and he fit in perfectly. Within about an hour it was like he was born into our family. We just love him to death!

Where does the time fly!!! At age 5 I'm still a little spit-fire. I got groomed the other day and Luke our groomer thinks I'd make a good therapy dog for both humans and other dogs. Dory has me to thank for her super personality (If I do say so myself!). Now if I could only convince her and Rook that summer storms ain't no big deal.

I had a blast a month ago going to Cape May to meet-up with some of my Westies Unite friends. Dory, Benny & Riley and Ms. Susie came with us. We got to ride a big ferry boat across the water to get there. Going was fun, but coming back was a bit bumpy.

The party continued when my good friends Bella and Icky stopped in for a while and stayed here at the house with us while my mommy took their mom's around DC.

Hugs and kisses all around.


Today I'm 4!

Wow - I can't believe it has been a year since I last posted something in my diary! I've been busy since my last birthday with me supervising the construction on our house.

2010 so far has had some strange weather - though I did love those freaky snowstorms in February. Normally I only see that kind of snow when we go to Grammy and 'Bob's'*.

I'm glad I got a new pool for my birthday since we went from a winter wonderland to equator hot. Every night I love it when Mommy waters the flowers and lets me play with the hose!

Birthdays are still great! I get rosettes and well wishes. I also got a new stuffed toy and some treats that I'm sure I'll have to share with Dory and Rook, but they are my buds so I don't mind. One good thing - those two landlubbers don't like the hose or the pool, so anything to do with water is mine, mine, mine!!

Happy birthday to me again!

*(Sadly my gramp Bob passed away in May. I loved him - he'd always sneak me food under the table, though I did bark at him alot when he had his hat on.)


Today I'm 3!

I just love my birthday (even though Dory feels the need to try all my treats and steal all of my toys!) I get stars and rosettes from my many Dogster friends. I gets gifts and most importantly FROSTY PAWS! Tonight I got to share my boxes of Frosty Paws with Dory, Rook and my best friends/neighbors Misha and Spencer.

Mommy feels like it was just yesterday when I came to live with her, Daddy, Skyler & Rook right before Christmas in 2006. I was just a baby and now I'm almost all grown up. (She thinks/hopes I'll never grow-up because I'm perpetually in motion and greet each day like it is a new adventure!)

Though we lost my best bud Skyler a few months ago, and even though I'm a Westie, his Border Collie spirit lives on in me anytime a hose comes out. He taught me the super fun art of water play at a very young age. He also taught me the importance of herding! I sure miss my big brother.

Well off to play with my new stuffed beaver, beer mug and flamingo - that is if I can get them away from Dory! Just she wait until her birthday in a few weeks!

Happy 3rd birthday to me! Everyday should be my birthday!!!!
