Happy Howl-oween!

Card is courtesy of Ambassador Cards.

Happy Halloween Everybody!

Nope, that's not me. But it sure looks like me doesn't it.

That's a card mom found that we scanned in to show you.

Maybe I should be calling Hallmark instead of Hollywood?????

Who, by the way, I have not heard back from yet.

I mean, really, Mom says I am quite the little devil anyhow so what would be the big deal putting the costume on and having a few professional shots taken????

Anybody have Annie Liebowitz's number handy?

Here's hoping your day is full of treats pups!

Cracking Myself Up


This Halloween thing is not all bad.

When Mom saw me in this getup, she laughed so hard she nearly did a puppy pee.

Yep, she laughed THAT hard folks.

Makes it all worth it.

TOTALLY worth it.

Beware Pups and Pupettes ....

Stand alert pups and puppettes ... because this is the time of year when your people will try to dress you up.

Even if they aren't the "dress the dog" type.

Trust me, you're gonna get dressed up.

Not to worry ... I am having fun trying on different masks this year.

I'll let you know if the whole "premptive" costume picking thing works out for me.

Now I gotta run check out a few other options.

Spooky thought, huh.

I would do it!


If it would get me to Hawaii, I would do it.

I would put on a Hawaiian shirt and hit the airport.

This is me when I was a younger wee one, trying on a shirt I was considering wearing for my dad's birthday.

He's a shirt guy.

If it would get me to Hawaii, I, Duncan, who has sworn off clothes, would put a shirt on and wear it the entire time.

Yessiree pups and pupettes ... I'd be quite a vision strolling on the beach, don't you think???

Let's all leave lots of comments.

Comments and comments and comments until Mom decides she can't NOT take me with her next time.

Let's build the pressure, pups and peeps.



I'll keep you posted.

You may have heard ...

You can get this card at the website

You may or may not have heard that my mom and dad went on an anniversary vacation without me.

To Hawaii.

You also may or may not already know that Westies are famous for their surfing skills.

So famous, in fact, that cards are often made with shots of us surfing.

For real.

That famous are our surfing skills. (*)

And my parents had the nerve to go there without moi.


What's a dog gotta do to get to Hawaii?

Dress up in a Hawaiian shirt or something?

(*) probably not actually famous for it at all

Rain, rain, go away.
You're just giving me a bad hair day!

Listen pups and peeps ... I know there must be something good about rain.

But I live in California. SOUTHERN California.

We don't do rain here.

If we had a much rain as we have had here lately every October, Hollywood would have to relocate.

Famous People don't do bad hair days.

And, by the way, neither do famous dogs.

And don't even get me started on the whole lightening and thunder thing.

Seriously, what is up with RAIN needing to make itself so obvious???

Here's hoping this week turns into sunny days for all of us!

Another guest photo this Friday pups.

Check out Sophie digging into our PUP HAPPENS tote bag from the puperie.

I am thinking that maybe our tote bag factory also makes dog treats or something because we just can't help ourselves with the merchandise.

NONE OF US can help it.

We're overcome.

It's not just me Mom.

It's not just me.

Did you see me?

I was in a neighborhood near you.

I am JUST SURE of it.

Did you see me?

I was CRUISING with my dad.

The top was down.

The day was a little cloudy so we didn't need our shades.

I was looking out over the back of the car.

The wind was blowing my hair.

It was GREAT.

Just me and my dad.

Cruising down the highway.

Right along the beach, if you must know.

Life is good pups, life is good!

Oops, you missed it!

Me, back when I was an innocent little tot of a pupper.

Just a reminder that my 9 month birthday was last week.

On the 13th.

That's right.

You missed it.

It was HUGE!

No worries ... I know you were all thinking about me.

Because you are who you are.

And I am who I am.

Acknowledge and Move On

Yes, hello.

It's a cat.


Let's all acknowledge the greatness of the feline and how happy we are to have expanded to include kitties over at the puperie.

All together now ...

"Oh, how great thou art, dear cat."

You are hereby advised that we have some great cat stuff in the puperie.



Now we can all move on and get back to our real purpose.


We didn't name it the PUPERIE for nothing, folks.

Every now and then we get some great feedback from our friends.

I know it's NO NO FRIDAY but this one takes a different tone.

Lexie here was kind enough to send this picture in as testament to the fact that sometimes we woofers just can't help ourselves.

Lexie admitted to being a regular blog reader and knowing perfectly well that it is a big NO NO to dig.

But she couldn't help herself.

Check out that white nose.

That's dirt.

She dug.

It's not just me people.

It's not just me.

I like to be near my people

Call me crazy.

I know it's shocking.

I like to be near my people.

Stinky feet and all.

I know, I know ... Mr. Independent and all that.

Can't help myself.

Kind of like the whole chewing thing.

Just one of those things I can't overcome.

Plus, really, when did sucking up to your people ever turn out badly for a pup???

Hope this doesn't change your opinion of me.

I'm still as sweet and stubborn as I ever was.

Equal Opportunity Puperie

I know.

I know.

My mom made me do it.


We will be uploading CAT stuff at the puperie soon.

Something about equal opportunities for all.

Call me crazy, but it just doesn't seem the same to me.

It's not called the meowerie, is it????

What do YOU think about it????

post signature

Dear Duncan,

Please work on expanding your horizons ... cats are people too. Or something like that ...

Oh, boy pups and pupettes.

Remember how my condo was demolished a few weeks ago???

I am still trying to find "my place" now that it's gone.

BUT, and this is a big one ....

Even if your world has been totally rocked because your bed was moved, it is a BAD IDEA to start using the chair your mom has time and time again tried to keep you out of as your new hanging spot.

Even if your Dad says it's OK.

If it's furniture related and Mama says NO, it doesn't really matter at all what your dad says.

Trust me ....

Do you ever check yourself out in the long mirror in your mom's closet?

Ever check out your reflection in the glass part of the fireplace cover?

I happened upon my reflection this morning .... found myself devilishly handsome.

Mom says the devilish part is the key here.

Don't mean to toot my own horn but I am having one of those really good days.

Here's hoping you are too!

Double Wide

We can't help ourselves.

We Westies, every last one of us, are very opportunistic.

Case in point: when my bed got moved I used the opportunity to make myself a double-wide.

Check it out ... my version of a trundle bed.

One side for play.

One side for sleep.

Mom, tidy freak that she can be sometimes, tried to put the "mattress" back in the "bed" all the while saying our house is too small for a double wide.

I don't see you giving up YOUR double wide mom.

With all due respect.

I'm just saying ....

post signature

Dear Duncan,

Please don't get sassy with me. It does not suit you.

And your double wide will disappear permanently if you keep it up.

All my love,

Monday Blues

For those of you reading this from an e-mail and not on the actual site, there is a video here that you probably have to go to the site to see. This one is worth checking out!!!

Sometimes when we have a really good weekend around here, it's hard to face Monday morning.

This morning, I found myself checking for dog videos to crack me up.

Now I know why Hollywood has not called.

There's tons of talent out there.

Tons of talent.

The competition is fiercer than I originally suspected.

Could be, I am gonna have to get my dance on like this pup.

Check it out. You'll get a laugh when you imagine me (and my dad!) dancing like this.


Sign me,

Little D, four legged Fred Astaire

Listen up, pups and pupettes ...

Unless you want your ANIMAL PLANET priveledges permanently revoked, you better stay away from the remote.

REMOTE = REVOKE puppers.


Thank heavens the chewy gods were shining down upon me and that crack I got in this one did not kill it.

I heard that crack and thought that sucker was dead for sure.

Gottta put a breathalizer on our instincts here.

No excuses.

Remotes are a dad's BEST FRIEND and they are NOT to be taken lightly, pups.

Not to be taken lightly at all.

And I'll be heading to the dog house now .....
