Benson and Suzy like...
Benson and Suzy's dad, Ron, writes, "They are great friends, after Suzy's poor start in life she has turned into a gorgeous and cuddly girl who likes nothing better than to tease Benson into playing with her. They give us the best greeting ever, even if we have only been out for five minutes. They love us unconditionally and it's great to see Benson lying on his back, smiling with his paws in the air."
Ted's mum, Jess, writes, "We've had Ted (otherwise known as Teddie or Theodore McSmith) for six months and he has grown into a delightful little terrier. We recently took him on his first holiday to the Lake District which he thoroughly enjoyed. His main highlight was learning to swim in the lakes. On his last walk to the lake before we left, he showed off his new developed skills by swimming after an unsuspecting duck. Ted is a delightful little Westie who really does live every day to the full!"
Radley's parents write, 'When we first had Radley at nine weeks, we went to the park for his first walk. We met another first timer with his German Shepherd cross. Radley loved him and is always looking for him when we go there. He gives him a big hug and a kiss when we leave.'
Belle lives with mum, Sue, and sister, Rachel.
Rachel writes, "In the winter when we had ALL that rain, we were walking on the field near us. Belle & two of her small doggy friends were watching their Husky friend run in & out of a very large puddle!! When they all finally plucked up the courage to investigate this large puddle, they didn't realise quite how deep it was and they had their own Vicar of Dibley disappear into the puddle moment! They, however, thought this was great fun and spent ages just running in & out of said puddle! The bath that was needed once home did not go down rather well!!"
Tipsy lives with mom, Jackie, and dad, Frank.
Frank, Tipsy's dad, recalls:
One day after a particularly gruelling week at work, I returned to find all three teenage kids in the playroom looking sheepish. Fearing the worst, I started the interrogation! Our eldest son, a six foot tall rugby player declared with a big grin that he not had a tattoo. Our second son declared that he had not wrecked his 11 years of dental work, having just had his braces removed. My daughter just stood there grinning from ear to ear and said nothing. They then pulled from behind the settee a shoe box and placed it on my lap - it shook like an electric toothbrush and I was convinced that they had bought a pet rat. Unable to bare the suspense any longer, I lifted the lid to find a tiny Westie pup, staring up at me with those big eyes. As soon as I stroked her she stopped shaking. Having been adamant that we were not having another dog before I retired, I immediately fell in love with this little pup and this was the start of our enduring relationship. Tipsy has become a big part of our extended family, but I wish one day I could get her to stop rolling in fox poo and barking at anyone who walks past the house!
It is our endeavour to create a community of Westies and their owners in the Berkshire, Hampshire, Middlesex, Surrey, & our Westie friends worldwide.
