Snoopy: A Lover, Not a Fighter

by Lee Juslin

Snoopy is an eight-year-old Westie that was turned in by his owners and is now safely with Lone Star Westie Rescue. Taller and leaner than the Westie standard and weighing about twenty pounds, his foster mom, Kim, nevertheless feels he is a purebred Westie. She does think he was taken from his mom too soon as he suckles on his toys.

Westies Talk

by Sheryl Wall

I have two Westies and they are very smart and love to learn. They also are very good communicators and will always find a way to tell me what they want. I will share with you a few stories to give you a good picture of their unique communication skills.

Christmas With Westies

by Sheryl Wall

As a child, can you recall how excited you would get when the Christmas tree and stockings went up for the holidays? Or how eager you were to open the gifts under the tree? Kids are not the only ones who enjoy the holiday festivities. Our pets too can get involved in the excitement; I know mine do. As long as we make the effort to keep the holidays safe for our pets, it can be a fun time for everyone. I always have to be sure that anything hazardous to my dogs are kept out of their reach and not allow them to be munching off of the humans food. I find that if I give them their own fun activities it makes them less eager to get into what is not theirs.

Fictional sleuths must have their sidekicks, whether it’s a best friend or boyfriend, a mother in law or pet. Sherlock Holmes has Dr. Watson, Stephanie Plum has her hamster, Rex, even Miss Marple has her knitting.

Therapy Dogs

I have loved dogs ever since I was a little girl, and find that they can often cheer me up when I am sad. My dogs are so full of love that I decided I wanted them to be able to share that love with others as well. This is what planted the idea of Dog Therapy work in my head.
