December WestieGram
December 1, 2006
Cordy's new litter is here!

Cordy is the typical Westie who has that investigative, curious nature.  She is such a loving girl and great mother.  She is due to have pups the week of December 3.  X-rays show she will have 5 and maybe 6 pups.  Her pups are already booked by people on our wait list.

Ellie's litter is due the middle of December!

Ellie is such a special girl.  She is a little shy and takes a while to warm up to guests, but she is a great mom and has great pups.  We just got a call from a family who has one of her pups and they want another pup, but it has to be Ellie's.  We have placed them on the wait list again.

A Christmas I suppose I remember every year, was when I was about 10 years old.  I visited my grandparents in Clarke County, MS often and played with Charlie under the big oak trees at my grandparent's home.  We played trucks with pieces of wood in the yard that had not a single blade of grass.  It was a sandy soil and my great grandmother would sweep the acorns with brush brooms made of branches tied together or sage brush brooms.  If any grass appeared, it was plucked up.

Charlie and his parents lived right up the road.  On this particular Christmas Eve, we had enjoyed a meal of fried oysters and had a large platter left over.  My grandfather invited me to go with him to deliver the platter of oysters to Charlie's family.  We arrived, stood around the truck, and my grandfather and Charlie's dad talked for some time. As they talked, Charlie's dad ate the oysters.  I will never forget Charlie looking up at his dad and asking several times, "Is it good Daddy"?  His dad never answered, only continued eating and talking.

As a 10 year old boy, my heart sank as I heard Charlie ask again and again.  I never felt the same toward Charlie's dad again.  I don't remember what gifts Charlie got for Christmas that year, but he didn't get the gift of oysters!

To me, the greatest gift of all is the gift of God's Son, Jesus.  He was born, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, arose from the grave, and is some day coming again.  Hallelujah what a Savior!  Merry Christmas!

Adolescence: The Teenage Dog
 
The adolescent dog, like the adolescent—or teenage—human, has an immature brain in a body that’s nearly the size of an adult. The maturing process happening in the dog resembles the human teenager in several ways, and your dog needs similar guidance during this difficult life stage.  What's going on in your adolescent dog's body and mind?  Do male and female dogs tend to mature at different rates?  >>>More

Because of problems, for the past two weeks I have been re-designing the website.  I was able to recover some graphics, but lost a lot of them.  I lost the pup diaries I always post when we have a litter of pups.  This re-design has been a labor of love!  I have wrestled with how to present our dogs and at the same time offer helpful information.  If you have ideas, let me know.
