Mom's Inspiration

I often wonder why mom decided to adopt me. I mean mom and dad just got engaged, just moved into a house, you'd think they'd like to enjoy it all and relax without having to cope with me. Turns out, the final thing that did mom in (for years she had wanted a wire 'cos she grew up with one called Georgie), was a picture of Colby who lives in Winnipeg, Canada. Colby is now 5 months old, but it was the pic of him at 3-months that melted mom's heart - pictured left. Pictured right is Master Colby today.

I think we look a lot alike, we're both handsome dudes! Colby's mom Wendy is so nice, she's sending Colby on a vacation while her and David bounce about on a ship at sea! Boy is he lucky, he's going to the Santana Kennels which have executive dogruns and themed bedroom suites! Plus, the place is outfitted with webcams, so Colby's mom and dad can watch him online from their ship! Bloody awesome!


Objects out the Door

I was just sitting at the computer laughing my wiry head off reading an email from Susan who is owned by two wires, Dot and Dash (below).

She was giving counsel to someone who is considering buying a wire, she writes:

My dogs love to be outside. We have a dog door so that they can go in and out at will. The major problem with that is that anything that isn't nailed down eventually ends up outside. We find dog toys, kid toys, shoes, the bathtub stopper, kitchen sponges, socks/clothing. It's almost fun to see what they'll find next! While I've been writing this email, I've had one dog toy and one sock run out of the house.

Below is a charming picture of Susan's daughter Meredith with Dot the Wiry gal.


Wiry, Sometimes Stinky, Friends

I want to introduce you to two more of my wiry friends.
First up is Asta who lives in Boynton Beach, FL (Mom lived near there for a year, and goes on and on about how she misses those S. FL beaches!) - he is 7 years old and his mommy's name is Janet. Boy I hope I grow up to be as handsome as he is!

For those of you who don't know, pictured next to Asta from FL, is the "famous" Asta who starred in the Thin Man movies and TV series. He basically is credited with putting our breed on the map! From Asta's Fan Website, I learnt that, "Asta was immensely popular with audiences in the thirties - so popular in fact, that many smitten fans wanted a clever little companion like Asta to call their own. Unfortunately, this surge of interest then led to an over breeding problem for Asta-like terriers. " That ain't good! My fave doggie TV star is Eddie from Frasier, me and Dad watch the reruns every night together!

My other wiry friend hails all the way from Pembrokeshire, West Wales in the United Kingdom (sounds so grand!). Her name is Tilly and she is pictured here after a delightful swim on her summer vacation in an area of S West England called Exmoor! She's a cutie and what a lucky girl to vacation in such paradisical surroundings!

Brenda, Tilly's mom wrote this funny email this morning! You won't believe what little Tilly got up to!

This morning before work I took Tilly for a walk in a field where cows had been . What did she do ? Rolled in a runny cow pat. What a smell. I had to sponge her off and she stills smells awful. I didn't have time to bath her so I think that is going to be tonights job. She looked so pleased with herself with this black runny goo dripping off her ear. I can still smell it now, sitting at my desk !

Hahaha! You go Tilly!!! Brenda, sounds like you may want to try some Skunk Off to get rid of the putrid poop smell. If it works against skunky smell, it should work for bovine excrement!
