Our little Jazz has so taken up with my husband. He sits and watches him all the time. Jazz just waits for DH to say well come on. They he goes bounding toward whatever is happening. When they work on fences in the yard, DH says he won't get more than 3 feet away from him even off the leash. Not that he minds. He is already looking at Christmas stockings for Jazz.


Be your dream! Don't just imagine, do it!

I too have had many breeds. I raised Golden's before our area became saturated with them. So I put our Liberty to pasture. She had some of the most beautiful puppies.

Then we had a black Schnauzer who was the smartest dog we have ever known. When he died we didn't want to get the same breeds.

We began looking for another terrier. We love terriers. Finally deciding upon the Westie. DH was not too enthused about spending that much $$ but I convinced him that this was my 'treat' to myself after retiring. Now DH and Buddy are the best of friends.

I know what you mean about them being 'human'! I am certain that they can read our minds too. Buddy knows that I'm going out just by the look on my face, and begins the "Me too!" "Me too!" It's hard to say no. He has been my motivator to get in my daily walks. How can I say no to those brown eyes?

Oh Becky...I totally agree! I have had many types and breeds of dogs my whole life (my father raised German Shepards and beagles...my grandma: poodles and chihuahuas) and have had many a mixed heinz 57 variety. Loved them all, but this westie has stolen my heart. My older daughter loved ours so much, she and her family decided to get one from "Santa" a couple of Christmases ago. They love their Claire - westie.

They all seem to have such huge personalities and spirit. And...this may sound over the edge, but sometimes we swear she is part human. They are that smart!

But, the real clincher in our family is my husband. He is not an animal person...and he is ga-ga for this dog. We were visiting our daughter in Sept. in Chicago...had not seen either of them for 3 months...and when my daughter and I were hugging and kissing "hello"...we looked over...and down...and there sat my husband on the pavement with Skylea.

LOL! Needless to say...we strongly encouraged him to get up and show some decorum...hah! Chicagoan's were looking at him oddly. Very funny...and our daughter still teases him about saying hello to Skylea before her!

I suppose I am transparent in my love for this breed. I can hardly wait to shop for a new one.

We are so, so happy that you found us too! I bet you miss your little Westie! I was gone on a trip for 4 days and I missed Buddy so much. He definitely missed me too, and was SO excited when he saw me coming up the steps. They are GREAT!

Hi...I'm an old Sparkie, but new to the Westie team. I just discovered there was a team by stumbling on it on another's SparkPage.

My, or I should say "our", westie's name is Skylea. She now lives in Chicago with my daughter and her SO. Needless to say, I miss her. I am on the lookout for a puppy sometime in the spring of next year.

So happy to find this team of fellow westie fans. To know one is to love them all!

Welcome to the Team Julie! I am so glad that you decided to join us.

I don't know what happened to me... I never saw this post! That was one reason for me sending out the group email about making sure "new notifications" was checked for the Teams. Mine was... but somehow I missed your greeting.

Sorry.

My name is Julie. I was invited to come over here because we have Westies. We just love them. They are wonderful, smart, fun little dogs. I have 2 girls. 17 and 9. My husband and I stay busy watching them stay busy.
I look forward to getting to know you all.
