giving rise to the description "applehead".
Of the thirty-three terrier breeds (most of which were first used
for hunting of some sort and so came up as aggressive and
lively), the Wire Fox Terrier has a reputation for scampishness.
That is, the breed with the challenging personality that has been
identified throughout its history as being as foxy as the fox it
was once used to hunt.
With ancestors who were a breed of tenacious terriers, most often
used for ratting (hunting vermin), the Skye Terrier has become
less a working dog and more a dignified companion
animal»since the latter part of the 17th century. Long before
the reprieve from work, however, the Skye Terrier had an involved
life and unique start: it is said that the first Skye Terrier
came from ancestors who survived the wreck of the Spanish Armada,
swam to shore of the Isle of Skye , and mated with the terriers
living there in North-western Scotland in 1588.
Ringworm is an annoying, highly contagious fungal disorder that

Whether you intend to show your Westie, or keep him for a
household pet, the first key to West Highland Terrier grooming is
to start while he is a puppy. Take your Westie to his first
groomer appointment after he has had all of his shots, at
approximately 14 weeks.
I was talking to a friend of mine today and I asked him how his
kids (dogs) were. He lives on his own and the standing joke is -
"does he want to do a swap with his dogs and my kids?"He informed
me very sadly that he had to get the older dog put to sleep.
Have you ever held any Westie puppies? These tiny creatures are
cuddly and white furry balls, at least 12-15 inches tall,
possessing a pair of coal black eyes and snubbed nose. They look
fragile and needful of your protection and care.
Show an uninformed dog lover a photo of a Westie, and they'd
identify a Westie as a white Scottie. This mistake is perfectly
understandable, since they do have similar physical attributes
and both originated from Scotland.
Scottish Terriers are short-legged dogs, at a height of ten to
eleven inches, comparatively heavy-boned, yet deceivingly trim.
They are agile and sporty pets.
Let's face it - everything is cute when it's small and furry.
Puppies especially, but keep in mind that even a wolverine is
playfully adorable if it's young enough, so for the sake of all
the Fidos out there and your life, make a personal selection that
is suited to your lifestyle.
I have encountered folks who have complained to me about their
numerous (dog) behavior problems. And interestingly enough, I
usually discover that most of the behavioral problems are linked
to a common factor.
Thinking of getting a pet for your little ones? How about a
hamster? They're cute, inexpensive, easy to care for, and a great
first pet that will teach your child how to be more responsible.
Here are some things I learned during my experience as a hamster
One of the benefits of registering your pet with a pet recovery
service is that in the event your pet should ever become lost,
the finder can get information to contact the owner. The main
drawback to many of these services is that they use the
information currently located on the pet tag to register the pet,
and by doing this, the finder of the pet does not have a place to
go to view the owners contact information.
Have you ever thought about what you need to do should your dog -
or another dog - ever suffer a serious, life-threatening injury?
What if they have a severe allergy to an insect bite or a bee
sting? It's great to know your vet's phone number, but what if
something happens during off hours? What if you don't know where
the closest emergency animal clinic is located? Enough with
the questions already, right? Any emergency is stressful and
scary, and one involving that furry little four-legged member of
your family is no exception. The toughest of owners can be
instantly reduced to helpless balls of mush if something's wrong
with their dogs and they can't figure out what to do.
