Our daughter’s 10 week old female “Westie” i.e. West Highland White Terrier
We had the good (???) 8-) pleasure of puppy sitting Miss Lucy while her family was on a much needed and deserved vacation. We have decided that babies and puppies are for young people.
She’s indeed a cutie and we loved having her here but she was a lot a work, as any puppy would be.
Enjoy the pics

She is so sweet , Nelson . I'd love to just pick her up and cuddle her . Thanks for sharing . Would love to see more pictures as she grows up . I once boarded my schipperke at a Westie breeder . She sure stood out , solid jet black against all those white ones .

Face it, Nelson....
That pup ain't gonna be going back home!
Methinks that your statement is a cover up, and that you are already attached to her.

There are two Allen kids plus two adults who ADORE that little pooch. She came into their lives - already decided upon a week earlier - when their 14 year old Westie left for doggie heaven. At the time she'd been 100% blind for two years, had lost most of her hearing, but was not suffering therefore they avoided (very wisely so) having her put down. Then, she apparently decided one dog was enough for that household and laid down and died in their back yard.
It was a very sobering day...but they are now looking back on the timing and realizing it could not have gone better. Miss Maggie died on a Wed - we went over and watched, helped some as they placed her in her final resting place, one of the berms in their magnificently groomed back yard. The next day they planted some nice annuals to mark that spot. A very fitting tribute to a dog who was all that she could be for a family - I have told them many times they could not have a better dog than her.
The following Tues Miss Lucy entered their lives..and she's a pistol. Very much a chewing-on-everything and running away as fast as she can, puppy.
I am not now and never will be ready for another puppy. But would I take the "perfect" adult dog? In a heartbeat. One that someone else has properly house broken, leash trained, etc.
In the meantime we'll serve as puppy-dog sitters.
And loving it.
