by Cheryl on August 9, 2010

Happy Monday!
You may know that we lost our Westie Angel last year.   I still feel like I’ve lost my best friend, but we’re still not ready to get another one.   We have three other dogs and someday I’ll be able to think about bringing home another female Westie.

Puss,  Bubby,  Freddie Gumdrop.
