We had another awesome week. Mom and Dad took me to see the vet so I could get somthing wet put in my nose again, and they told me I was 18 lbs! Wow! Mom said I'm a big boy now!Ebony didn't get to see the vet, but her time will be coming up pretty soon, too. We made new friends at the vet waiting area. Ebony and I got to play with some really big dogs. Mom says somtimes we're a little too friendly and some dogs don't like to be approached so quickly and that's why sometimes they try to protect themselves. I need to practice being a little more patient with making new friends.

Mom says I'm starting to watch just as much tv as dad. I'm always barking at the moving objects on it and they never respond. I think I got Ebony watching tv with me, too.

Well, Ebony wants to play so I'm going to have to let you guys go for now. I've gotta get mom to take us a pic in our new coats and boots so you guys can see next time. Have a great week!

Catching up...

Good morning all! I have been away for a while, as mom has been working away all summer long. I have a lot of catching up to do. Well, mom got to go to FL for two weeks because she had to travel with work. She missed us terribly and we did, too. We had some nice time to bond with dad, though. We got to talk to mom over the speaker phone, but I was totally confused. I could hear her voice, but I couldn't see here. :O( Well, thank goodness that's over and mom is back home with us now.

Mom and dad bought us these really cool new toys made from nylabone. We now have toys that have lasted a whole week and we still haven't distructed them. Thanks to everyone for the advice. Those kongs mom had bought didn't stand a chance. I didn't realize they made toys out of nylabone other than bones, but they actually have a variety of them, and they come in different levels for the normal chewing pups to the really heavy chewers like us.

Meanwhile, mom is covinced that Ebony and I need our own crates. When she arrived from work on Wednesday she saw that Ebony had made a mess in her side of the crate. Well, it appears that Ebony must have sat on her food bowl and it broke off of her crate attachement. She's been trying to convince dad to bring out our other crate so that we each have our own. Right now we're using our 3 door extra large carte with a divider in between, so we each have our own little room. We fit perfectly, but its a little hard to lay down without my tail coming out or my nose sticking out. What do you guys think?

Well anyhow, mom and dad also bought us some new matching reversable rain/winter coats (pink and blue) with matching booties. Dad put the booties on us yesterday and I made them laugh so hard because I kept jumping around like a bronco. I couldn't help it, it felt so weird not to feel my paws touching the ground! Then we got to model our coats but since mom wants us to fit into them once we've completely gown, she bought them a little too big. Today we're going to make a trip to Petsmart to try on another size. Unfortunately, mom left her camera at work, so she couldn't take a picture of how cute we look, so we'll have to do that next weekend.

Mom and dad also bought this new sofabed at Costco for Ebony and I to share. This is me in my famous submissive pose with my ears back.

Here I am in another, what can I say, it was comfy!

Here is Ebony also enjoying our new fancy bed.
So dad thought he was being funny when he took this next picture of me. Can you see the angry look in my eyes? I'm not sure what the point of this picture was, but I was not happy about it.

Here's a nice on of me taking a nap. Oh, yeah and can you tell that I'm using a different collar? I'm actually now wearing my third collar, because I also tore this one up. Don't I look so peaceful? How can a face like this do anything naughty?

Here is Ebony looking as cute as ever. Mom and dad are also thinking about grooming us again, because Ebony's hair seems to be growing a little differently from mine, and with the heat it makes us thirsty really fast when we're outside. Although, mom and dad were thinking about taking us to the Petsmart right by our house, that is until they went yesterday and saw a poor little Westie being groomed so badly. They had shaved all the hair off his body and left his head bushy like lion. Mom said that she would cry if she came and saw we had gotten such a bad hair cut, just like she used to when she was little. Mom said the owner was very upset. Ebony looks so cute, though. Sometimes she looks like a little lion.

Here we are together, just relaxing.

Well, anyway, I hope everyone has a good week! Thanks for stopping by!

Mommy says I'm lucky I'm so good looking because I make even Daddy's not-so-professional grooming look cute.


This is me, Obie.
