Let's See Your Pets!

I'd wager that most of us have a furry, feathered, or scaly friend in our homes. Let's see them!

Alfie came to live with us at the age of 6 1/2 weeks.

 

          

 

  He's a Texas boy....born in 2000 and will turn 13 in February.  Of course he's my buddy.....like a shadow....either following me around the house or quietly resting at my feet or nearby when I'm sitting in the living room or the computer room.  He got a new, very soft, doggy bed for Christmas which has turned out to be a big favorite place for extended naps.  Actually Alf likes to lie down next to me in my recliner but there's not much room and he gets hot so after a while he usually jumps down on the floor.  But he definitely is NOT a lap dog.  Rarely gets on anyone's lap.

 

We walk a couple of times a day and, often, my wife takes him out for a third walk during the afternoon.  So he stays in shape.  Alfie has special friends around the neighborhood and always wants to stop and greet them...and play a little if they have time.  If they ignore him he "talks" to them. 

 

He is a rather large West Highland White Terrier.  Most male Westies run around 19 lbs.  But Alf weighs about 21.  Not fat though.

 

This is my second Westie.  My sons gave me the first puppy back in 1980 for Christmas and I fell in love with the breed.  The "get-up-and-go" personality of the Westie suits my fancy.  Originally bred in Scotland for hunting, they are VERY independent and, mentally, he's usually several steps ahead of me.  They are very hardy and muscular....a great cold weather dog because of their double coat.  He does not shed noticeably.  Grooming is almost an absolute necessity.  A wonderful dog for children and older kids.....with one negative.  Although Alfie is NEVER mean and has never bitten anyone, he can be aggressively playful and that is a put-off for a lot of really small children.  I think his groomer is the only person he's ever snapped at but she is a very patient and understanding lady so now.....after about 7 years....he knows her and likes her.  No more nips.  But he does NOT like that grooming brush or the clippers any better now than he ever did.

 

Here is how my little buddy looks today....at almost 13 yrs. of age:

Awesome pets guys! Smiley Happy I wish I had a pet, but I live in an apartment, and we aren't allowed to have pets. Smiley Sad

Re: Let's See Your Pets!

Hopefully I'll have a pic to put here real soon. A friend of mine and her husband are splitting up, one has an apartment and took one dog with her because that's all she is allowed, and looking for a couple of homes for their other two dogs. I offered to take one of them, a silky terrier named Bella. She's a few years old and I can't see her going to strangers. I'm looking forward to it, actually, since I haven't had a pet for about 20 years... I just never got another dog after my last one and swore I wouldn't have another. Who would have ever thought I'd be doing this again? I just hope he decides to give her up soon. I'll post a pic when I get her. Smiley Happy

Re: Let's See Your Pets!

Finally...here's a pic of Bella, a 3 year old Silky Terrier. She just came to live with us today. I think she's already taking over the house. Smiley Tongue

Here's an updated pic of Bella. this is her new "do", Smiley Very Happy..can't believe it's been a month now since we've had her. Smiley Happy

 

She loves to look out the back door but is a little too short so, one day, I put a chair there for her and that's where she stayed for about an hour! Smiley Very Happy I'm also thinking about changing her name to Houdini!! I don't know HOW she manages to get her one leg through her harness. Smiley Tongue

Adding another cat to the mix, this is Maggie (and my daughter haha). Have had her for all of her 11 years. She's moved 400 miles with me already, getting ready to move another 4,000 miles with me in 10 days!
