Still a Cutie
Oy. So whatâ€™s up with Beary White? I know youâ€™re all wondering that =P Heâ€™s doin pretty wellâ€¦ lotsa sleepin, poopin, sleepin, peein, sleepin, grubbin. He is starting to grow some rather thick chin hair. Not sure if you knew this, but Westies grow two coats â€“ a thick and thin one. Since heâ€™s still about a year-and-a-half old, all you can really see is his thin Greek-like, curly puppy hair (Beary also goes by â€œMopheadâ€ around the house). All West Highland white terrier owners Shannon and I happen to run into always say that â€œour dog used to look just like yours,â€ reassuring us that heâ€™ll eventually turn into some sort of pudgy, cream-colored Westie â€“ just like theirs. But I donâ€™t really buy it. First of all, Beary doesnâ€™t pig out whenever heâ€™s got a full bowl of dog chow, so heâ€™s not gonna get that stout and porky. Sometimes, one bowl will last him two meals. Besides, he was the runt among the pack of dogs when we got himâ€¦ and he still looks like one compared to the other dogs we run into whenever we walk him. Heâ€™s still a cutie.
