Short Stories from the Real Westie World
A Word of Introduction

If you have a Westie, you will perfectly know what I'm talking about, and if you haven't and want a wonderful life, permanent sun in your life, a new dimension, to live in a continous miracle,... and so much more, get one.

However, the beginnings were not always funny...

How it all started

Since I was a child I always wanted a small dog. We lived in a big city, my parents were very busy people, so a dog never came. Some ten, fifteen years later, my Father started hunting, so he got a dog, a very sweet golden cockerspaniel but it was a hunting dog and my Father didn't wish him to get spoilt by youngsters. And I had different interests at that time anyway, so the dog didn't come at the right time.

Another fifteen years passed, my Father died, my husband and me were very busy, travelling all the year round and my Mother started to feel lonely, talking about a small dog.

So, one day I decided to buy her a Westie as a present. I talked to a breeder, waited for new puppies and when these were born, my Mum and me went to pick up one. There were four of them, three brothers and a sister, all 3 weeks old. They were not yet much aware of the world around, just white furry balls, rolling in the yard.

However, one of the brothers immediately spotted us and when we were leaving the yard, only he looked back at us, evidently thinking: "I could easily train these two." He possibly didn't know how deeply right he was.

We were so charmed by the look of this black-eyed sweetie that we decided to adopt this one. I loved him immediately. I wished him to be beautiful, clever, intelligent but naughty and independent with a strong personality. My wishes were all granted: His name is Drix, born on 3rd June 1993.

When he was 5 weeks, the breeder called and invited us to collect our little Darling.

It was the day on which I acquired a brother and a Master and my life completely changed. I entered the Westie World!

He was all white, furry, cuddly, tiny, little creature, smaller than a slipper but cute, quick, barking day and night and biting with all his needle-like teeth like a crocodile. Whenever we wanted to pat him, touch him, our hands were all blood. Soon we started to call him Dracula.

My Mum complained that she hadn't imagined a creature like this, she wanted a good, easy doggie, watching TV with her and not this monster.

So, this little doggie moved to me and my husband. At that time we literally lived in cars, on business all the time, but each of us in his own car, miles apart, Drixi always with me. When I visited the Vet, I told him about the biting problems we had and he explained to me that Drix was apparently dominant in his family and was trying to get the same position in our family and that he needed a good belting, otherwise we wouldn't be able to manage him when he would be three. I was shocked to beat such a sweet little creature. Never!

Also, it was very difficult to sleep, he was barking all nights, to drive because he was barking so loudly that I couldn't realize where I was and often had to stop and get fresh air to be able to drive on.

Once I needed him urgently to obey but he continued to bark, so I dared to roll up a newspaper as another Vet advised me and attempted to pat him to stop. He got absolutely furious, his eyes turned emerald green, jumped, grabbed the paper, in seconds tore it into thousands of little pieces and started to bark much more aggressively. And I learned that this is not the way to take.

I didn't know at that time that it was all part of the training - Drixi's training of me. In the years to come I was about to learn so much...

Now, please browse my site, you will find more articles about dogs generally (on the right) and especially, I recommend the excellent 'Mad About Westies' Package (on the left)... Learn the secrets of HOW to have the happiest, healthiest and most well behaved westie you've always dreamed of or start to understand what your dog tells you!

Dog Bite Prevention

When GOD had made the earth and sky, the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals and the birds and bees.
And when His work was finished and not one was quite the same,
He said "I'll walk this earth of mine and give each one a name".
And so He traveled land and sea and everywhere He went,
a little creature followed Him until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth and in the sky and sea, the little creature said: "Dear Lord, there's no name left for me!".
The Father smiled and softly said,
"I've left you to the end,
I've turned my own name back to front and called you "DOG", my friend.
