Lucy does the snapping thing, too! She will be sitting on my lap or when I'm sitting down, she will lurch at my face and I can hear her teeth clanking together. But she never actually bites. I think it's a love thing. She only does it with people she likes. I call her "Snapper."

They are all so weird!! emoticon

We have "mouth fencing" at our house! The dogs--Westies & Aussies--do this thing where they turn their heads this way and that with their teeth showing. You can hear the teeth click together and they have this weird sort of growl while they do it. Very funny to watch!

Ailie DID kill something one day! I was out talking to my neighbors in their driveway, and Ailie started sniffing at something in the ground cover. We saw a mouse dart out and back in again, so we started cheering her on. When the mouse finally dashed out and started running across the drive, we shouted, "Get it, Ailie, get it!" She ran, grabbed it, spit it out, it ran, we yelled, she grabbed it again and killed it. Joe (neighbor) said he didn't think that little fluffball would actually kill something.

She was SO proud of herself afterward. Thought she was some big hunter, so she went pouncing all through the plants and ground cover searching for more prey!

One of our evil doxies is the alpha dog and every now and then she likes to tear into Ailie. It sounds horrible - a regular dogfight except that they don't draw blood. The last two times, Ailie has actually pinned her down on her back and held her there with her paws! It is SO funny!

P.S. I found something hysterical for Doggy Jokes, but you'll have to wait til tomorrow!

Lucy likes to walk around with a toy or rawhide in her mouth and go up to the other dogs like she's offering it to them, but she growls just daring them to take it away from her. (Only we know that she is the least aggressive of all four dogs so any of them could easily get it from her)

She should have remained an only child because she loves to chase and fetch toys. Sometimes, when the others are outside, we'll play with only her. This comes from the days when she was an only child and we'd play her hard before bedtime so she would sleep all night.

We love them all so much.

Janis--I always wondered what a Westie would do if they actually caught something! And they look so darn sweet!

Debra--poor Kirby, has it rough, or should I say ruff:) I think the sigh thing is really cute. We laugh about it all the time!! Any purchases lately?

Jolie likes to think she has killer instincts but, even after 9 years, hasn't realized that squirrels climb trees. I think she thinks the dematerialize!

Today on the way back from Yellowstone, my husband stopped to take photos of an old barn that had fallen down. While he was doing that I decided to let the dogs run in a field across the road. My sweet little Maggie jumped out of the pickup and killed two ground squirrels within 60 seconds. We were shocked to say the least!!! You can take the Westie out of the field but you can't take away their instinct to hunt. Her new nickname is "Killer".

that is so cute linda.
kirby gets mad when my dh gets on a tractor and don't take him. he'll go plop down hard on the couch and make a huh sound and put his head down and pout. but when he gets back kirby greets him at the door with a stuffed squeeky toy. then he's up in his lap and licking his ears. then he has to help dh shop on e-bay.

Well, this isn't exactly weird but it is so Gidget! My hubby picked her up from the vet following our trip as we were too late to get her yesterday. She gave him a big lick and then turned her head and wouldn't have anything to do with him. When they got home I was resting but had wisely left a plastic bag with two stuffed toys at the end of the bed. I got the best licking I have had in a while! Hubby and G have since made up. Throwing the ball cures everything with her! Linda

Our newest westie, Kaylee absolutely loves toys! She a puppy mill breeder release, so I doubt she's ever had toys before. She especially loves balls. She takes one, jumps up on a couch, puts it between her two front paws and ever so slowly pushes the ball with her nose until it starts to fall. Her game is to catch it before it falls, or if it falls, to catch it before the other three westies do!! It's so funny to see her on the couch doing this!

How much room do I get??? Both of my girls do weird things.

Lucy loves to attack the vacuum cleaner, especially when I am using attachments. Not a lot of cleaning happens when she is around. Lucy also likes to fetch toys I throw, but with four dogs (two Westies and two Mini Aussies) around, she doesn't get to do it often. Sometimes just to make her happy I put the others outside and play with her. Also, she does not like to be touched when she is asleep (by anyone but me)and sleeps for hours on end. I swear she can hold her pee for days.
Maggie watches a lot of TV. She'll sit with her head cocked to one side and bark when there are dogs, wolves or door bells. From the time she was a tiny puppy she would sit on the forced air floor registers to get warm or cool. She also comes in the bathroom when I am drying my hair and is the only one of the four who likes it when I aim it at her to make her warm.

Whatever they do, they are always entertaining! I could go on and on.

Oh gosh, Fiona loves reflections and lights, too! We had to get rid of the laser pointer, because she was just getting a little obsessive about it.

Fi also loves to see other dogs on TV, especaially other Westies. She gets really excited about the Cesar dog food commercials. When dogs are on the TV, she will usually whine at them a bit, then do a little bow, like she wants to play with them. Sometimes she will go get a toy and drop it in front of the TV, like she is trying to entice them into playing with her. She really cracks me up!

Jolie likes to sleep on her back with her tummy exposed. Louis, my boy Westie, didn't do this. Is this something girl Westies do? DH says Jolie needs to be more modest.

LOL I love the TV thing too!

Debra, that is hilarious that Kirby rolls over and waits for applause! You should video that for us I would love to see that!

In the mornings when we get up we have to play this game "Catch me if you can" with Riley to get him out of bed. He sleeps with me and my husband and we have a kingsize so of course if your on the side closest to him he runs to the middle LOL This goes on for about 5 minutes until we can distract him and grab him! LOL

Yea the TV thing I find really interesting. I swear Fosse knows what is going on and isnt just reacting to 4 legs. She also makes this snorting noise that sounds something like a pig, usually when she has her nose in your arm pit lol.

kirby joe & la la la like to watch tv too. they bark at other dogs and various other animals and things. they also pay attention to children which is funny to me because they're never around children. the funniest thing kirby joe does is when anyone gets applause on tv he will go to the center of the floor and do roll overs and then stand up and stare at us to applaud, which we do. then he'll do it again and get more applause. it's so cute, he's such a ham !!

Riley is weird sometimes and I just wonder if all westies have some of this same behaviors or if my dog needs Cesar Milan!?!

*He chases and barks and tries to catch reflections of light.

*He will chase a lazer pointer for hours if you are willing to move it around
