Bertie needs a break...

Look, just because your human is friends with someone, it doesn't necessarily follow that you have to get on with that someone's dog, does it?

I'll be frank with you. I like my set-up, living in a nice house, just Gail and me.

When Gail said, "Oh Bertie, won't it be fun, we're having wee Rosie the Westie to stay for a couple of days, you'll like that won't you?" I wasn't given any choice in the matter.

Because I'm a polite chappie, I refrained from any overt actions displaying my displeasure at having to share my living space. There wan't any snarling, baring of teeth or outright aggression.

I hope my body language conveyed my feelings.

(Gail says: "Don't worry Bertie, it did!")

Well you too might object if your customary quiet evening, relaxing on the sofa with your nose on your human's lap, was disturbed by a very insistent little Westie snout poking across from the other side of the sofa and constantly demanding attention.

I think I successfully made my point by playing with my Westie stuffie and trying my best to ignore Rosie altogether.

And if Rosie was at all perturbed at the sight of her stuffed toy counterpart missing part of its face, well that's no skin off my nose...


  1. Well Bertie at least you didn't rip off Rosie's nose. You sure are being a good boy for your trouble.

  2. Tough times having to share Gail with company, but it looks like you are making the best of it. Good boy, Bertie.

  3. We think Rosie was lucky you showed your 'feelings' towards the stuffie instead of herself.

    Bertie lad, it ends today, so that longed for break is near!!! Watch fod clues of Gail packing the car :-) hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  5. MOL MOL Mol Bertie I feel and hear your displeasure. Not 3 weeks after I was adopted by mom and dad and my litter mate Lucy was adopted by my Uncle G. Lucy came to sped a week with me. The humans just knew being blood related we would not forget each other. Joke was on them. Lucy and I had such a rumble spit and fur flying that Mom had to take Lucy back home (20 miles) and then for the next 2 weeks she had to visit Lucy during her lunch hour to be sure Lucy was fed, watered and had a clean box. Yep I truly understand. Rosie was lucky you didn't try to remove parts of her face. Just sayin'
    Hugs madi your bfff

  6. Well we guess you let Miss Rosie know how you really felt

  9. Wowser...muzzer has been off her feed, and we have missed so much stuff. Looks like you have been having a good time, despite visiting dogs...because the visiting humans made up for them. I will try to keep her on task for a while so we don’t miss more of your exciting summer.
