“Fetch”! … What happens next?

“Fetch”! … What happens next?

Do you like to throw balls and toys for your dog – and expect them to “fetch”?

Yeah, my humans do that sometimes.

And sometimes it’s fun… like, when there are noms involved. So my rule is “no noms, no fetch!” Simple.

Fetch!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even then, I do the fetching on my own turns. Running with a full belly isn’t very comfortable, so I’ll only fetch until I’m all nommed out.

You have to make these things work for you, y’know!

Nose licks (nom-scented ones),

PS. Mum used to have a Scottie dog when she was younger. She says that the Scottie could NEVER be bribed into fetching. Whenever mum threw a ball, the Scottie would give her an indignant look, saying “well, if you want the ball, you shouldn’t have thrown it, you silly woman. Get it yourself!”

BOL!!! I think this Scottie was wise too! Us terriers are very wise!

Special talent: Hypnotise-eyes

Special talent: Hypnotise-eyes

Hello my furiends!

Recently I told you about my special talent as a “Minnie-Matic“, which is a great way of getting extra noms.

But the problem with that approach is that it’s a little bit reactive, and totally reliant on the humans dropping food on the floor.

So when I have an extra hunger going (which is, um, quite often!), I have a more proactive approach to securing extra noms.

The secret? My hypnotise-eyes!

Hypnotise-eyes... "look deep into my eyes... feed me... feed me..."The hypnotise-eyes work a treat on my dad… unfortunately mum is a little bit more resilient! But if I work it hard enough, even she will cave in. 😉

I hope the hypnotise-eyes trick works as well for you as it does for me, my nom-loving friends!

Love ‘n’ licks,

Minnie x

Nom nom nom!

I do like my food, and like to try all sorts of tricks to increase my daily doggy dietary intake.

This particular “hypnotise-eyes” trick works very well with dad, but not quite so well with mum!

Special talent: Minnie-Matic

Special talent: Minnie-Matic

If you’ve seen the Cartoon of the Month this month, you’ll see that my nickname is “Minnie-Matic”:

Minnie-Matic

What can I say, I am a very house-proud Westie and like to make sure that the floor is clean! Should dad (or mum) ever happen to drop any food, I’m there right away to clean it up!

Favourite food spills to clean: chicken, fish, frozen peas, carrots.

Minnie-Matic is not available for the following food spills: lettuce, tomato, strawberries… ugh!

What about your dog – do they like to keep the floor clean too?

Waggy tails,

Minnie x

Special talent: belly rubs

My special talent: getting belly rubs

Westies are very talented dogs y’know.

Yes, there are the usual West Highland Terrier traits of digging, being stubborn, being cute… but there’s so much more to us than just that!

My special talent (and hobby) is getting belly rubs from strangers when I’m out walking with mum and dad.

Westie belly rub

The humans tend to roll their eyes when I’m so friendly to strangers, but I don’t care. The humans obviously don’t realise just how good a belly rub is!

Mmmmm, belly rubs  *dreamy look just thinking about belly rubs…*
