Hello!  My name is Finlay, and I will be writing guest posts on my Mommie RJ's blog from time to time.

Let me tell you a little about myself.  I'm originally from Charlotte, North Carolina.  I'm a Glen Brittle Westie, and I was adopted by a family in Alabama.  It rains here in Alabama a lot, and I've been a little confused about where to pee, but I'm trying.

I have lots of toys, and I like to play with them in the sun.  There hasn't been much sun in Alabama so far.

For a few days, I had one ear up and one ear down.  It looked like I was waving at people!  But Mommie RJ received some great advice, and now, voila!  No worries.  Both ears are up!

I have some Westie friends in Maryland named Derby and Julep.  

Their Mama Katie sent me a very large care package:

I got some toys, a neat halter, some stinky fish stuff (Sea Cure), and my Mommie RJ got some stuff to read about Westies.  One of the books has Glen Brittle Westies in it!  We were so happy to get the nice package. Thank-you Miss Katie!   I like getting stuff in the mail!

I like toys, too!

My Mommie RJ puts me in a bucket carseat.  I don't like it!

I must needs escape this bucket o' doom!

My bed is under Mommie RJ's desk.  I like my soft bed and my soft blankie that Mimi gave me!

  3. Well, hello Finlay and it's so nice to meet you. You are such a pretty little Westie and I'm sure you'll figure out really soon where you need to pee pee. In the mean time just keep playing with your toys and giving you mommy RJ and the family lots of love and kisses and all will be just fine.

    Shelia ;)

  7. You are a cutie and I look forward to reading your posts here, when your mom lets you post.

  8. Good evening Finlay!! You are a precious little person with a lot of personality - I can tell! I have a Australian Shepherd and Blue Heeler mixed named Bella. She kinda runs our home. But, I guess that's what you sweet things are suppose to do. Tell Mom I am her newest follower.

  12. Finlay, your are definitely a cutie! You are one lucky Westie to get to live in Alabama with your new family. Our Sadie is older than you, but I think the two of you would be good friends.

    Best wishes,
    Natasha in Oz

  16. I see Finlay's ears have stood up. He looks just like our Fergus!! Enjoy!!

  17. Just catching up on my blog reading - am glad the box was a big hit with Puppy F and Mommy RJ.

    He is one cute westie! Hugs, Katie

  18. Hi Finlay! I read your post while I was with my family in Des Moines on Wednesday. I could not comment on my Nook for some odd reason. I just wanted to let you know, your post was a very bright spot on that very sad day. Thank you and give your Mommy RJ a big kiss for all the love the two of you have shown in this post.

  19. Oh my goodness. What a precious little guy. I know they aren't supposed to do that, but that floppy ear sure was cute.

  20. Omg Finlay, you are aDorabLe!!!!!!!!
    I have a "herd" of little dogs and I've said "No more!"
    My house is full but boy, I kinda wish I had a Westie too!
    You are so stinkin' CUTE!

  21. Welcome to blogland, Finlay! I sure hope you get more sun than rain, soon. Thanks for telling us a bit about yourself, and sharing your adorable selfies. :)
