I am a West Highland White Terrier, but since you are my friend, you can call me Westie. I am a spunky and active little dog, initially bred in the Scottish Highlands to hunt small vermin like my cousin, the Scottie dog. I have a tendency to dig in the yard trying to find where the little blighters are hiding under the ground. Digging is really the only way to get them since I don't have the patience to wait for them to come out of their hidey hole. Please don't get mad at me for doing that; I am just trying to help eliminate all the rodents I can. Sorry moleys, nothing personal, you are just too irresistable. About the only thing you can do is try to distract me. I do love to chase a small ball around the yard! I’m generally pretty easy to train, when I feel like it and if you make it fun.
Another trait of my breed is I get lonely when you leave for work, so please ‘haste ye back’ as quickly as you can. When you get home I would love to go on a long walk with you. Walking every day helps me because I have so much energy! I do need to be on a leash though because I am sometimes frightened at first to meet other pets. Once I get to know them, I'm just fine. I do love socializing, and am a jolly little terrier, but please make sure that any little ones don't pull on my ears or fur because it really hurts and I just might nip.
Your pet becomes an expert at finding its own food!Dog-athlon
The history of dog-athlon? Welllll, I suppose Dog-athlon got started when the first caveman held up a juicy bone and and threw it out for his pack to fight over it. Of course, back then a bone could feed fifty!
Nowadays? Things have certainly changed, but suffice it to say, the pampered pooches of today will run, jump, flip, swim, prance, and trot for a delicious, low-carb, high-protein, sugarless, gluten-free, all organic 100% USDA certified treats!
But, that don’t mean every competitor’s playing with the blood of legends in their veins. Last year, one of our greats nearly drowned in a vat of honey. Thank goodness that family of bears happened by. They licked that vat plum clean and the ol' dog finally got that bath he’d been avoiding!
Few years before that, one enthusiastic pup went after a frisbee and never stopped running. Legend says her fancy pants owner can still be heard calling for her down Rodeo Drive. Some of these competitors? Well, they’re pretty, I’ll give’em that.
Of course, then you get a few who are Day One naturals, born to win, by any means necessary. Yes, sirree, if you’re racing a natural, you best be on your tippy-toes, one eye open at all times. These kids got talent and if talent don’t get them the win, they ain’t opposed to a bit of creative strategizing, if you catch my drift.
