First of Many Dog Blogs

January 16th, 2007 Posted in Animals

My wife and I have two Westies. According to Wikipedia, which we all know is 100% accurate, Westies have a:

bold temperament that leads many to call them “big dogs in a little body.” They are always alert and consider themselves guard dogs

Ding. True on that. The problem is that it is a bit inconsistent. Indy (named after Indiana Jones), our male, will go after a big dog but is frightened by aluminum foil.

It goes on to say that Westies:

get along with other animals

Bzzzt. Only one for two in our household. Indy doesn’t take to other dogs very well. Maybe the Wiki entry should include something about not getting along with foil products instead. Wikipedia also says that:

They are very energetic but tire and need to take several naps per day

So do I…but I have a job. You could say that about 90% of the animal kingdom.

Anyway, Indy wears his emotions very well. Too well sometimes…but he makes for a good subject. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of him and his adopted sister.

This shot was taken a while back with a borrowed 50mm 1.8.
