Good Dog Design: Mom wants this kitchen

Seaside whimsy in Centerville, MA eclectic kitchen
SOURCE HERE: eclectic kitchen design by boston kitchen and bath Artisan Kitchens LLC 

So my mom saw this kitchen on and decided that she needs it.

She needs it BAD.

You may or may not know that there has been a longstanding "discussion" between my mom and dad about our kitchen.

Mom says needs new countertops; dad says "don't think so honey" and I say "are we seriously talking about this again?"

HOWEVER, now that I have seen this, shall we say DOG-CENTERIC, kitchen, I am thinking of throwing two paws up for mom's team next time the topic comes up.

Check out those drawer pulls!!!!

And there are THREE bowls, which since I fly solo in our house would surely mean one for food, one for water, and one for TREATS!!!!!

Ahhh, imagine it puppers.

A whole bowl full of treats.

I'll keep you posted on how this one shapes up ....

Westminster Dog Show Coming Soon!

Dishtowel from Anthropologie.

The Westminster Dog Show is only 18 days away.

I am thinking about having a party.  You know, the pupper equivalent of the Super Bowl.

At this point it is in the conceptual stages .. you know, trying to figure out what we could drink slurpily out of my water bowl collection and drip all over the floor during the commercials.  White Dog Brew anyone?



Probably shouldn't have put that out there what with all that floor cleaning that has been going on in our house.

Hope I didn't blow it!!!

I am a lounger extraordinaire


I think it is safe to say that many, MANY of the pics that end up on this blog are of me doing what I do best.


Yes.  I have MASTERED it. 

Learned from a pro ... my mama. 

We LOUNGE like nobody's business.

With this in mind, and because they used a likeness of my handsome self in that photo up there, allow us to introduce Refined Canine.

Now this picture below is the one I think they should have used me to model in, quite frankly:


That bed there is for serious lounging.

Serious CALIFORNIA lounging.

Note to self:  get a deck. 

The company describes themselves as wanting to come up with good design at affordable pricing.

We think they've succeeded!

A little head's up ...

OK, I know, not the best picture quality, but that is not the point.

The point is, puppers, that if you are going to sleep on the side of the tub, do NOT forget that you are there.

Last night I was sound asleep and when I started dreaming about all the playing I was gonna get to do at camp today,  I got a little chill of excitement.  So, naturally, I jerked a bit and next thing you know .... WHOOOOOOSH ... down into the tub I went.

Now, sliding into the tub is not that big of a deal in and of itself.

HOWEVER, I slid down with a bit of a bang.

Scared my mom and dad, who were sleeping in the bed nearby, TO DEATH, apparently.

Must have made quite a racket.

They were NOT HAPPY to be woken up in the middle of the night that way.


Not happy at all.

Word to the wise: Sleep in your bed, puppers.  Just sleep in your bed.

Good Dog Design


Ohhhh, how we love this one.

Good Dog Design, yes???

This custom made collar is available from Leigh Sarver on Etsy.

It's a little pricey, coming in at $60, but it's a custom designed brass plate up there riveted on to the collar of your choice. Her pup has been wearing hers for 5 years and it's still looking good.

Two paws up for this one puppers!

Two Paws UP!!

Another "Why Not Moi?" Moment


I know what you're thinking.

"That Duncan is so much cuter ...."

I hear you.

But, I don't do planes, so I'da never been across the pond in the first place.

Plus, even though I turned TWO last week and fancy myself pretty grown up and all, I do still suffer with an excitement pee from time to time.

My mom would KILL ME if I pee'd on The Princess.

And can't you just see if happening?????

She is so beautiful and so obviously a Westie lover that I just know the excitement would have gotten to me.

Things happen for a reason, puppers.

Better that dude than me this time!

Fancy Smancy


Anybody besides me watch the Golden Globes last night?  Everybody looked so pretty and all fancied up. 

And did you also notice that at one point a big group of people took their dog up on stage to get their award with them?

Ohhh, in my dreams!!!

It will happen.  I will be famous one day, I just know it ....

And when my mom takes me up to win my award, I think she will need these shoes.  Marc Jacobs  designed them and, to me, they look like a cute little pupper. 

Perfect for the occasion, yes???

Thank you for all the goodies you and Sophie sent me for Christmas.  I looooove presents !!!!!

I especially love the treat hider game you sent.  Just when I think I have it all figured out, the treats show up in different places.  I am still learning not to eat the actual game in search of treats ....  I kind of get on a roll, you know.

Such bad manners!

Dear Mimi,

We apologize for the delay in saying thank you for the PERFECT Christmas ornaments you sent us.  This one, in particular, really hit the spot in our house, and probably with lots of our readers too.

Mom says that we are going to have a "Westie Tree" next year just for me and we are going to use all the great ornaments you have sent us.

Thank you, Thank you!

Westie = Westie in any language

In the Super Mercado in Costa Rica

For Christmas, my mom and dad gave me one whole week at puppy camp.   Woo hooo!  I had a blast. 

When they came back they let me know some great news.

It turns out we are famous EVERYWHERE.

And in many different languages as well.

Our Motto for the New Year

From Primitives by Kathy

Mom says we are gonna have to figure out our resolutions for 2012 pretty soon, but I think I am going to work with "mottos" instead this year.  You may recall that my pawsolutions last year did not work out so well.  Or, really, at all.  Why set myself up for disappointment????
