Oh, they are so cute! Do they make you laugh a lot? They look like such characters. What are their personalities like?

Teresa, I get a lot of fun out of watching them play etc they are such gorgeous girls. Maddie is a little more excitable than Izzy, Izzy tends to be a little calmer and little more laid back but she can be a stubborn little git. I decided to trim around her eyes after the photo but she wasn't keen, I had treats in my pocket but she still wouldn't fully co-operate will try again tomorrow. I trimmed around Maddie's eyes and she was so good. 

Maddie gets a little anxious when we are out walking if she hears a dog barking behind a fence and will look back constantly while out walking whereas Izzy will almost bound along like a bunny it's quite funny to watch, she's not phased at all. Maddie will rush out thru the dog door when she sees a dog go past the window, I am trying to deter her with vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Izzy just sits and watches her most of the time, I've only heard her bark once or twice, Maddie can be a little noisy but I am working on that with her. 

Both are very sweet natured, I've yet to witness a nasty moment between them. They both have the same energy level, love squeaky toys, balls, good cuz/bad cuz toys, love tug of war, love to chase each other and wrestle.

They love sitting together and Izzy will even sit on Maddie when she climbs up on my armchair, Maddie doesn't seem to mind. Unfortunately they seem to like my chair and leave very little room for me, I get a tiny bit of room at the front. But really I don't mind. 

When I am patting Maddie, Izzy will put her little paw on my shoulder (if she's on the back of the chair) or jump up next to me if she's on the floor. Then of course they lose all interest in me and start playing together. If we're on the couch and Maddie is sitting next to me, Izzy will climb up and climb over the top of Maddie so she is directly next to me, even if it means sitting on Maddie. But that doesn't seem to worry Maddie either.

I love the way they greet our families Westies Foster, Mollie and Ryley (Foz and Mollie are Mum's, Ryley is my sisters) they lick them in the face constantly, it looks so cute. Foz lets them do it for a few seconds and then lifts his lips and growls, it doesn't deter them though. Mollie is a little more accepting, Ryley is not sure what to think. They do the same to Zharli my sisters Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and she doesn't seem to mind. 

I was on the floor looking under the armchair for Maddie's beloved little ball tonight and both were down there with me peering underneath the chair. Of course they tried to lick me in the face for my trouble.

I am really thrilled with how well they have bonded as my Kelsi & Hannah had more of a love/hate relationship.

They sound delightful Diana.what a great entertainment they are. The first picture cracked me up I give it my POW. Moshe and Levi have never tried to climbed so big on a chair or couch.
They are two very lucky girls growing up together. Thanks for posting your pictures they are delightful.

They certainly keep me and any guests entertained with their antics. I love that they adore one another, no need to referee.

David, Hannah was 13 when Maddie came along @ 8 weeks and she was great with her. Taught her what was right and wrong and also played with her endlessly, it was great to see Hannah so playful again. Even Kelsi @ 15 would get in on the action a little. Of a night I separated them from Maddie so they could get some additional rest, but I think once the lights were out they would have all been fine together. 

Yoka, all my Westies have been furniture orientated. In the lounge I have 3 ottomans so they can climb up and down off the couch, the armchair doesn't have an ottoman but it doesn't stop them from claiming it as their own.
