My Westies

As much as my 2 westies are a handful I love them to bits. They always have to be near me. When I sit on the couch the 2 of them lie next to me even though there is another comfier 3 seater at the other side of the livingroom. If I moved to the 3 seater they would follow.

They rely on me to feed them and let them out for the toilet and take them down the beach to run about (even if they do roll in whatever rubbish they find). I bath them to make them smell nice and put out a lot of money to keep them well groomed. They are my children. I don't care what people say, dogs are mans best friend, they need us. I need them.

They warn me during the night if there is something or someone outside. They have stopped cars from being burgled by barking and scaring the people off. Houses have been broken into but not mine. The dogs wont let anyone near the door without barking to tell me someone is there (even if it is someone they know).

They lie asleep next to me right now and I am thankful they are there. When I go out and come back they are thankful to see me no matter how late I come back or how long iv been gone. They wont forget me :)

I love my girls.
