On Westminster winner Sky (and why my heart belongs to Addi)

Several friends have brought to my attention the fact that a wire-haired fox terrier named Sky was Best in Show at the Westminster dog show (the USA's version of Crufts) this year.

We can all agree she is a spectacular looking wee lass.

Now I have been feeling a bit upset that Gail vetoed my getting involved with all the Valentine's Day business this year, with that lame "too busy at work" excuse with which many of us are so familiar.

Long time readers will know that my special sweetheart is Addi from Illinois. The most beautiful big-boned American Bulldog you ever could meet.
 Addi, I want you to know that you are still the tops.

Not for me a girl with candy floss for legs.

Can you imagine a date with Sky?

"Ew no Bertie, I cannot come with you for a rampage across a Highland bog. I need at least four more hours on the grooming table before I could possibly show my face to the world. And by the way, were you aware that the set and shape of your tail does not conform to the breed standard? Please run along and fetch my nail varnish. And I suppose you think that's funny, offering me a lift in a tank..."


  1. Oh we did have fun with that ole Green tank huh Bertie and more than once. You are my top dog and I only have eyes for you. You are more handsome than that ole fluffy Sky.

    Happy Valentines dear Bertie!!!

  2. Bertie you and Addi make a lovely couple. Happy Valentine's Day to you and all your loved ones.
    Best wishes Molly

    Good Lord, way too bon-bon for you Bertie, you're right. Addi is beautiful too and gotta admire a gal who is happy to play with tanks and follow you over a bog or five.

    Have a wonderful day even if you are not getting to join in the main party!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Oh Bertie u r the best. You know a good thing when u have it

  5. hmmm you do know Sky is now retiring from showing to "just be a normal dog". He peeps said she will be snoozin on the couch, and doing lots of walkies now. Maybe that diva quality will be long gone. But we like your choice of Addi - you need a good sturdy gal

  6. Well, congratulations to Sky...and to your reflected WFT glory. But, you're right Addi is the girl for you.

    Can't believe Gail wouldn't even help you put some ♥♥ on your tank.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  7. Morning Bertie and oh yes were we thinking of you when we watched Sky prancing like she owned the ring and lo and be hold she DID .. What a gorgeous WHFT
    Happy Valentine's day
    Hugs madi your bfff

  8. Addi is a lovely grrl, and you should have a big Valentine's romp together. Stop by the pawty anyway, even if your momma's being a scrooge!

  9. We are pretty sure that Addi Totally understands... and still ♥'s you. She is a LOYAL Girrrrl.

  10. Yes Bertie, you are right we don't think thats Sky is the kind of gal that does well in blogville, you chose wisely! A huge Scottish Happy Valentines Day to you and Gail!

  11. Happy Valentine's Day, my wotten waven godson! You and Addi make a fine couple.

  12. Our Lady has been very busy so we are only sort of doing St. Val's day. We hope you and Addi have a great time on the tank (that is more our style too!)
