Westie Wednesday - Picture Perfect!

Did I mention that Louis had a hair appointment on Monday?  It's been long overdue.  Remember these pictures:



Well, Monday I dropped him off first thing with a *NEW* groomer.  I will never take him back to "those we shall not speak of", because they scalped my pup :(  I happened to meet someone at Dogtoberfest who hand strips, and we're back in business!!

When I went to pick him up after work on Monday he pointed his nose up into the air, and pranced right out into the sunlight.  Everyone said "ooohhhh...isn't that the cutest westie/white scottie!", and Louis shook his rear at them for show.  He KNOWS when he is being complimented :)

***SIDE NOTE - I have learned that correcting people, when they call Louis a Scottie, is useless.  They look at me as if I am wrong, and he clearly IS a Scottie.  So, now I just smile and think to myself...."Awww...they don't know the difference.  Bless their little hearts..", and move on.


Apparently the grooming session really wore him out, and he spent most of the evening on the back of the couch.  Under TEN's sweater?  Very interesting....




The other excitement in Louis' life this week is that I've finally completed his 2nd Year Photo Book!  I don't know if you remember, but I completed one for his 1st Year when Shutterfly was offering a free book special of sorts last year.


This year I found another offer for a free photo book The Paper Coterie.  This one is hard covered, and you simply pay the shipping charges:

(enter code MOMCREATIVE2 to save $38!  a big thanks to The Mom Creative for this coupon code, and a big thanks to mrs.mfc for the head's up!)

I also went ahead and made my Christmas cards for this year.  I am ordering them from Shutterfly again, but unfortunately...no code for me to get 50 FREE this year.  Darn!


So I guess that's it.  Louis is clearly the star of this family, and thank goodness I've got him looking his best because party season is just around the corner!

Westie Licks,

T & Louis

So Louis was strutting his stuff on his way out of the groomers huh?...lol It's funny how sometimes I see a picture of Louis and it looks so much like Duke.

Good news about finding a groomer who hand-strips - he really looks good - so I can understand how exhausted he must be ...

I'm with you on the scottie thing - it is unless.

Take care,
Katie
