Thanks for the welcome.

The pictures on my page are a bit old. I'll try to take some decent new photos real soon. The girls have slowed down a bit and both have some mobility issues (just like me - bad backs & legs). We keep them as healthy as possible with a diet of homemade food (plus biscuits and treats). I add gelatin to the food and supplement them daily with a capsule of Glucosamine with MSM. It really helps. Kira, the Westie, is losing both her hearing and her sight and we have her on medication to help her cognitive function. She sleeps more than she did a couple of years ago... but she still acts like an energetic young pup when something exciting is happening.

Ailie reminds me of Kira when she was young. It took a long time for Kira get her fluffy thick coat, so with thinner flatter hair she looked like she was all ears and nose. As she got fluffier her look really changed. The picture of La la la looks like Kira once she got her adult coat.

Morag is a red brindle. She started out looking very blond with just a few darker tips. Over the years she darkened quite a bit, and now she is working on her Westie look - white hair.

Dog kisses and kitty purrs - two of the best things in life!

Welcome, Lynn! Wow, 15?! Glad to know they live that long. I am hoping that the evil doxies DON'T live that long. Just kidding (sort of). My sons each have a short-hair, mini-dachshund and my daughter just got a mixed long- and short-haired speckled mini-doxie. So, I am surrounded by wiener dogs but my own sweet pup is a Cairn Terrier/Miniature Schnauzer mix. It's funny - looking at your pics, my Ailie looks just like your Westie and nothing like your Cairn!

Anyway, we're glad you're here!

Hi,
I'm new to SparkPeople and happy to find this group. My eldest baby is a Westie. Kira will be 15 in February. We adopted Morag, a Cairn, later that same year. At present my old girls are joined by 4 cats. We love them all.
Lynn
