I was NICE!!!!!

Well, I knew that no matter what Santa thought, my friend Sarge would take care of me.  And he did.  Oh, how he did!!! 
I finally got do dive right in and there was so much goodness in that one box it was unbelievable.  Best of all I GOT BALLS.  I mentioned that I was a ball guy and I got not one but TWO new balls.  And treats, and poop bags, and a treat canister and MORE!!!!  Thank you Sarge!!!

Once Sarge's present was open my stomach got a little crampy and I started to wonder how the rest of the morning was going to go.  I did NOT see a stocking hanging by the chimney.  But then this happened:

My mom said Santa left my stocking on the table because it was TOO FULL to hang by the chimney.  More treats and another ball, puppers.
Wooo hoooo ..... I WAS GOOD.
Had me worried there for a minute, Santa.
Until next year,
Thankful Duncan

FFHT -- Things are NOT looking good for me.

So,  as is my holiday custom, last night I acted like I was sleeping in the bed with mom and dad but I was really listening in on their conversation.  Puppers, things are not looking good for me. 

Mom said "Gee, I hope Duncan has an awesome Christmas.  He has been such a sweet boy this year." 

My dad said "Which Duncan are you talking about?"  I thought that was RUDE, but sometimes he thinks he is being funny when me and mom think he is not so funny, so that is what I thought was going on. Mom too, because the next thing she said was "Our sweet Duncan.  I just can't wait to see what Santa brings him."  To that I thought "Woo hooo, me too!!!"

But then Dad says "I know you don't want him to be disappointed but I think you should know, I found something in the garage tonight that leads me to believe things are not looking good for Duncan ....."  And he held this up for mom to see:


Well, puppers.  This made me so sad that I rolled over and got up and left the bed without looking back.  What have I done????  Why me, Santa?  Why, me??? 

I was so sad I went and laid down by the fire place with a big sigh and resigned myself to a sad, sorry, lonely Christmas.

But then I heard something in the garage.  I ran in there and found something shocking ....  a Chubby Little Elf was hanging out in my garage.  I said to him "Get out, I hear you have nothing good for me this year.  I don't understand why not.  You have hurt my feelings and I must ask you to get out of my garage and be on your merry way.

And then the chubby elf says "Back off sad and angry white dog.  I am here because we figured out on our pre-delivery check out run that our navigation system was off by one digit and I think I dropped some coal off here by mistake." 

Happy Dance!!!  This is me doing the HAPPEEE DANCE!!!!

Woo hoo, puppers.  It looks like things might not be so bad after all!!!!

Except for the bulldog next door that sometimes likes to growl at me.  I regret to inform him that things are not looking so good for HIM this year.

Do you see me, Santa????

YO, Santa!  Or, maybe I should say HO HO HO, Santa!  Do you see that picture of me up there????  That is moi, all dressed up and getting ready to deliver a box of biscuits to our local shelter so the pups there will have some awesome extra stuff in their stockings.  This would be a very NICE thing to of me to do, right?????   Aaaaaaannnnddddd, I let my mom put that fancy outfit on me and everything.  And I did not complain.  No, sir, Santa.  I did NOT complain about the clothes. Just saying.

Respectfully submitted,

Duncan B.

Holiday Card Blooper: My ear, My ear!!!

Only my mom could magically make my ear disappear without knowing a darn thing about photoshop.  She totally and completely lost my ear with the camera.  Good Lord.   Perhaps my resolution for 2015 should be to get a new blogtographer.  Ay yi yi.  Seriously.  My ear is gone.  GONE.

Did you say something?

Can't hear you .....

Sarge delivers. Thank you!!!!

Woooo hoooo, puppers.  I got a present from Sarge in the mail.  Thank you, thank you!  Gosh I love this present exchange!!!!!

As you can see, I dove right in.  Literally.

And then do you know what happened?

All of a sudden, all I can hear is her screeching, yes SCREECHING, I do not exaggerate here, NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

And then, all of a sudden, whoosh, my pressie was gone.

Plopped right in the top of the present pile.  Unreachable until December 25th.

Dear Santa, I think this was very NAUGHTY of my mom.

Just saying ....

Fool Me Once ....

Dear Santa,

I am a ball guy.  I know you probably already knew that and all, but just in case my mom tries to sub out my letter to you with one that she actually wrote, I just wanted to say it again.  I am a ball guy. 

And, yes, my favorite ball is a green one.  But it is NOT this green one:

The other day mom and I were playing ball and all of a sudden she tried to pull a fast one on me.  She said it was to improve my health.  She was hoping I would bite into it and love it. But, pfffftttt, NO.  I did not like it.  It was tangy and crunchy, not slimey and perfectly seasoned with saliva and dirt from the floor. 
No disrespect to the healthy eaters of the world, but an APPLE is a fruit serving and NOT A BALL under any circumstances, by any stretch of the imagination.

So thank you Santa, for listening.  And for ignoring any letters you might receive from me requesting fruit in my stocking.  Because that would be a fraudulent conveyance of my wishes by my mom.  And that would be naughty on her part, so go ahead and put the fruit in HER stocking if you would.

Respectfully submitted,

Why, it was lovely, thank you!

Mom's birthday was excellent.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciate all that others did for me to honor her occasion.


Mr. David brought me a couple of pupcakes and Mom got a couple too. MORE PUPCAKES!!!!
Mom had it in her head that we were going to cut them into pieces and eat them slowly and daintily.  I  probably don't have to tell you that that didn't happen.  I didn't even stick around long enough to hear her reasoning on that one.  It mighta been her birthday, but it was my pupcake we were talking about.  I make my own rules.  But you already knew that ....
I also appreciate the fact that some of you were considering moi when you wrapped her presents. I have never met a gift bag I didn't love, and yours were no exception.  Thanks, also, for not sending something breakable.  Two words for that ... buzz kill.
Happy Birthday Mom.  Thanks for letting me make it all about me!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!!

Here is a little blast from the past to celebrate my mom’s birthday today.

This is mom and her first dog, Misty.

They were both little cuties, yes?

Happy Birthday, Mom!

I dare say, I love you more than treats.

And that is really saying something!!!

Best party ever, and I wasn't even there!!!

Whoa, puppers.  I just had the best time at a party and I WASN'T EVEN THERE!!!!

Allow me to explain:

Furst, my mom saw this bag on her desk at the office.
  Mr. David had dropped off a treat JUST FOR MOI!!!!!
It's Bella's Barkday!!!!

Next, after having it on her desk for like maybe 87 hours or so before bringing it home to me,
Mom showed me my package.  Notice that she did not immediately hand it over. 
That is dog abuse, but it would have been bad form to mention that right at that moment.
What could Bella be sending ME on HER barkday???????
Oh, my DAWG.  Did you read that?!?!?!?!?!

Bella sent me a cupcake.  A.  CUP.  CAKE.
My very own first cupcake EVER.
I got a REAL cupcake on HER barkday.
WOWZA.  I felt kind of faint with specialness.
Not so faint that I couldn't dive right in, but faint like in a "my heart is real happy right now" kinda way.

And let me just tell you something, puppers.
Hints of vanilla and orange zest with just the tiniest linger of chicken.

Thank you Bella, from the bottom of my very, very happy tummy and my very big "I only have eyes for you now" heart!

Thank YOU. And YOU. And YOU and YOU and YOU!!

Oh,dawg, puppers.  I have so much to be thankful for.  Mom says it is nice to have a day where we sit down and really think about it.  Sometimes it makes us realize how much we take for granted!
Thank you to my dad --- you have ALWAYS got my back.  Sometime you have my butt too, like that time when we went for too long of a walk in the park and you had to carry me all the way back to the car. 
Thank you to my mom -- even though you go away sometimes,  I know you are always coming back.  And thank you to the friends, even the puppers you cheat on me with, who call you away to visit them.  I can tell mom has a good time with you cuz she is always so smiley when she comes home from visiting you. 
Thank you to my friends and counselors at puppy camp.  Especially thank you for your patience -- sometimes my westie-tude gets the better of me.  I am working on it.  Promise!
Thank you to my family, including my special "aunts" -- you let me break the rules, which of course I looooooove, but you also always support my mom and that means the world to me.
Thank you to our loyal readers -- we love hearing that we make you laugh sometimes. I think I am hilarious, so it is nice to know that sometimes you agree!  We appreciate your follows, views, comments and emails.
And thank you to Blogville.  How lucky we are to have a worldwide group of friends like you!!!  You make us laugh, you make us cry, you inspire us and you encourage us. 
Thank you, thank you!

What's a guy gotta do to get some rest around here?

You may recall that my preferred sleeping spot is anywhere on our near the tub.  In my opinion, as evidenced by the following photo, tubs are for sleeping and NOT FOR BATHING.  Bathing is overrated, but we've discussed my opinions on that already.

So, imagine my surprise when I went to put myself to bed early last night after a rather exhausting weekend and saw this:
My mom was using my bed for BATHING.  She filled the tub with water and got into it herself. 

This is wrong puppers, this is just WRONG.
And, when she got out there were bubbles and stuff left behind.
After a long night of sleeping restlessly behind the toilet, I have decided that I will let it go for this time, but if I catch her again we are going to have a long, serious talk about respecting other people's property.

Happy Birthday Aunty Sharon!!!

Well, the good news is that I did not really eat your present!  Wahooooo.  This one can't be blamed on moi!!!!!

The bad news is that my assistant (mom!!!!!) messed up on the order for the "just a little something" we were sending for your birthday, and it won't be there until one day next week.  Geesh.   I am so sorry for this little mishap that is totally and completely (ha!) my mom's fault.

Mom says it is not all bad ... at least we can guarantee that the celebrating will continue into next week :)

Happy Birthday from your California Fan Club!!!

Happy BIrthday to my Pop

Happy Birthday, Pop.  Hope you have a day full of treats and lots of gift bags to rip up!  Mom and I made you something special but because of the holiday, it might be a day late getting to you.  Mom said I was "under her feet" the entire time we were working on it and that I was slowing down the process.  I don't have any idea what she was talking about ... I was just snoopervising!

Monday, November 10, 2014

Woo hooooo, paws in the sand!!!!!

Well. I know you were thinking my mom was slacking off again since I have not posted for a few days.  Butt, I have to say, she has actually been working harder than it appears.  We are signed up for the holiday card exchange, we signed up for the gift exchange, and, the old girl has actually started working on our Christmas Cards.  Despite the lack of posting, my assistant is actually doing right by me right now.

And, AND, we WENT TO THE BEACH!!!!!!

Oh, how I LOVE THE BEACH!!!!!

A sandy nose is the best kind of nose!


I was on such good behavior that I even left the mama and her babies alone!

Requisite on the bench in front of the fancy hotel picture.

Life is good.  Life is very, very good!

Halloween: I know you want to know ....

Yes, I did end up wearing my costume.  But, my girl Sophie sent it to me so that made it all better! Plus, you know, it was the perfect one for me, if I do say so myself.  Super Dog to the rescue!!!
Here I am with my friend spooky hanging out waiting for more trick-or-treaters.  Business was slow, so in the interim, he and I had a long talk and we made friends.  His days around here are numbered, so what the heck, right?

Super Dog takes Super Nap.  Somebody text me if anybody needs rescuing!

Halloween scares westie!

There is a part of me that hopes my assistant loaded this video wrong, because, really, I AM A VERY BRAVE WESTIE.  Really.  I was caught in like my one moment of weakness for this entire year here.  Seriously.  Halloween doesn't scare me.  I scare Halloween.

Anybody from Colorado????

You may have noticed from our lack of posting that my help has been off galavanting around again.  Naturally, I checked her photos upon her return:


At first I thought it wasn't so bad.  You know, lots of pictures of other dogs in a great little town.  Anyone from Colorado?  Because it looks like being a Colorado dog is a pretty great thing to be.

But then I came across the photo that absolutely devastated me:

My mom was TAKING A SELFIE WITH ANOTHER DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My mom doesn't even take selfies with me ME!!!!!

What the heck?????

Sign me,

What do you mean "Is my tail missing?"

Oh, my dawg, puppers.  Does your mom ever think she is soooooo funny?

Yesterday after their hike my mom came running inside the house trying to see my butt.

"Duncan, is your tail missing?  Because dad and I just saw a ton of Westie tails on our hike!"

On their hike which they went on without moi, by the way.

Ha, ha, Mom.  Good One.  Not.

Although generally I hate to waste precious post space talking about anything other than moi, it being my blog and all, today I would like to say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my mom and dad. 

Mom, I have it on good authority (what do you think we talk about all those times you desert us leave the two of us alone together?) that Dad loves you more today than he did the day he married you.

Moving on to someone I NEVER mind sharing space with … HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my NONNIE!!!

To celebrate the occasion, I ate your party hat and totally spoiled all mom’s pictures.  That’s your boy!
