Westie Wednesday

I've been feeling under the weather this week :(  And I'm trying REALLY hard to stay well, because I've got a fancy pants event to attend on Saturday :)

My dress is with the seamstress.  It will be ready Friday evening.  Fingers crossed!

I seriously have like 500 things to tell you, and I'm keeping a running list.  For now, let's talk about Louis :)

Louis is allowed to go out the side door of my house to potty "real quick like".  He is NOT allowed to walk up the driveway any further than the front of my car.  He knows this.  And he loves to push the limit:

He kept marching back and forth last night, and looking up at me as if to say "see mummy, i've not gone past your car".  Then he would walk back in the opposite direction.  I got so tickled I had to take a picture :)

I've also taken a video of Louis playing with one of his Christmas gifts.  I remember when I was small, my mother would remark how much it amazed her that the fancy pants, expensive gifts were my least favorite.  Easter baskets filled with Godiva chocolates?  No thanks.  I'll have some peeps please :)  My pup is the same way.  Expensive toys, fancy treats....and his absolute favorite toy is a cheap "this may be cute" toy I bought from ABC Distributing.  Are you familiar? 

(Furr Ballz Interactive Dog Toys - $5.95)

I thought it looked silly.  I thought about buying one for each of Louis' puppy friends.  I decided I'd order one for Louis first, and if he liked it I would order more.  Apparently they were this year's hot ticket item, as they are sold out and have been for a while :( 

It sings "Who Let the Dogs Out".  Over and over and over and over and over.  You can understand my dismay.  But he loves it.  He loves it to pieces.  It is actually coming apart.  In pieces.  But for now it is his best friend.

Here, let me show you how much Louis enjoys his:

Westie Licks,

T & Louis

Wednesdays keep coming and going and I keep forgetting to tell you this... theres a little sign on the side of the highway that I drive past with a little Westie on it. I think it might have been an adopted stretch or something and I always think of you and Louis!

Cutie Louis! Do you have a fenced in yard?

Lewis is so cute with that toy! Jake loves his stuffed toys. He always wants us to throw them so he can chase them!
Can't wait to see pictures of your new dress!

LOVE the video, and Louis has a precious little tail! He sounds so fierce while playing. Love it!

My dog has destroyed every toy she got for Xmas. Luckily, she does not chew anything that is not given to her, but ugh- I have no idea why she thinks she needs to chew them to pieces! haha- I like how he was testing you :)
