Smidgen, Skeeter and Skylar
Favorite food: (Smidgen): I love just about anything. I am not finicky like my sister Skeeter. She didnt like Hund-n-flocken or California Natural. Now, we are trying a new kind called Natures Blend. I dont get much human food, even though I would like to. (Boy, my parents are strict!) I love popcorn, carrots and ice cubes
when I can get them. My official title is Kitchen Custodian
it hits the floor and its mine!!|
(Skeeter): Anything that Mom and Dad are trying to eat. From their plate to my mouth I say
dont I wish! I am a mooch and proud of it!! Heck, someday they have to lighten up and learn to share. They KNOW that I dont like most dog food. Maybe, this new food will be more suited to my sophisticated palate...
(Skylar): Everything, I am not picky at all.
(McTavish): Whatever my sisters are having!!
Favorite toy: (Smidgen): Wow, I have so many to choose from. Does Skeeter count? I love to chase after her and chew on her leg like a chicken bone. Otherwise, my stuffed banana is fun to toss around. Mom tries to rotate the toys so I dont get too bored. Skeeter and I have the most fun fighting over the toys. I usually just let her win because
she is such a whiny little girl and my ears start aching from listening to her!!
(Skeeter): Anything that Smidgen has is mine, mine, mine. After I take it away from her, her next toy is even better and it is mine, mine, mine
until she pounces on me to get it back!! It is not fair, she is bigger than I am!! I dont know why people call me whiny.
(Skylar): Rope yarn and anything Skeeter is playing with!!
(McTavish): I have too many to pick from...but whatever Skeeter has is fine with me!!
Favorite activity: (Smidgen): Going for a walk!! Second, is playing in the backyard with Skeeter. I love to chase all the squirrels, toads and chameleons. If I cant find any of them, Skeeter is a good substitute. We chase each other all over the yard. Skeeter is quick, but I have more endurance. I dont know why everyone laughs so much when they see us playing!!

We chase each other all over the yard. I am as agile as a cat but Smidgen does a good job of keeping up with me. Sometimes she even outlasts me and wont quit pouncing on me! (Skylar): Playing in the yard and chasing after falling leaves. Next is playing with my sisters.
(McTavish): Roughhousing with Smidgen, tugging toys with Skeeter and playing chase with Skylar. I am just starting to zoom too. Nothing more fun than a four dog zoom race!!
Special talents: (Smidgen): Having the most beautiful rolling bark in the world
according to my mom. Holding down the Rose of Sharon branches so Skeeter can pull the blossoms off. I also conveniently remember how to roll over as soon as I see a treat come out. Hey, I dont work for free!! My Mom thinks I have the most happy-go-lucky, sweetest personality in the whole world. Aw shucks, I am blushing!!
(Skeeter): Most piercing bark in the world. Hey, I want to be HEARD. My dad says that I am a great dancer and who am I to disagree. Its a great attention grabber and I always get a long backrub out of it. I am most proud of my temporary position as Smidgens physical trainer. Thanks to my encouragement (she says aggravation), her leg is normal and I regained my best buddy and constant playmate.
(Skylar): Being the best behaved and sweetest rescue in the whole world!!
(McTavish): Cutest puppy in the world...according to my sister and mom!!
Most embarrassing moment: (Smidgen): Using the Holly bush as a slide to reach the patio. Whew, that was a close call. When I was just a pup, I liked to crawl into my water bowl too. Besides not fitting anymore, I am much too dignified now.
(Skeeter): I fell into the hot tub and my mom had to rescue me. Dog paddle? What is that? My Mom constantly embarrasses me when she tells people how sweet and loving I am. Hey Mom, I am not Smidgen. I was born to irritate people. (McTavish): Getting my head stuck in the gate!! At least mom didn't take a picture of it!!
Most trouble I ever got into: (Smidgen): When I was nine months old, Skeeter and I got overly rambunctious playing on the couch. I fell off and broke my leg!! It was awful!! I couldnt play or run around for about three months. I was on a leash forever!! Now, I am totally healed and nobody can even tell which leg I broke. I learned my lesson too
I am much more careful about jumping now. (Skeeter): I was constantly in trouble as a puppy. Its not my fault, its the genes. I cant help it that Smidgen got all the happy-go-lucky personality. Pillows and beds are just made to chew on. All that fluff looks so pretty floating around the room. Yuck, it doesnt taste very good. Everybody forgets that angelic Smidgen shared many a bout of destruction right along with me. She just conveniently left the area after the deed was done. I stayed around to take the credit.
(Skylar): Getting picked up by the Animal Shelter.
(McTavish): Still waiting...
My favorite friends: Favorite friend (Smidgen): Skeeter is my best buddy in the whole world
even though she is my sister. Mom thinks we play together like little bear cubs. Sometimes Skeeter gets a little obnoxious and I have to put her in her place. (Skeeter): Smidgen is my best friend in the whole world. Sometimes, I get tired of her namby pamby ways. She sure is fun to play with though and those ear massages cant be beat!! Skylar): Smidgen and Skeeter, my Westie sisters. (McTavish): Smidgen, Skeeter and Skylar.
Biggest adventure: Driving eight hours from Tennessee to our new home in Arkansas. We dont remember much because we slept most of the way. We know that our older sister, Widgit, wanted to drop us off along the highway or at least sell us at the nearest roadside stop. (Skylar): Coming to live in a strange house with two new Westie sisters. (McTavish): Going To Doggie Fun Zone in Memphis.
