Guess where I am?????

Cherry Blossom, originally uploaded by Wonder Westie.

Yeeeehaaaa, we are ALL back together - in Japan!!!! Yep, that's what the new venture was all about and we are all FINALLY in the same country again. She was soooo excited to see me as She hasn't seen me for 6 weeks (He saw me only last week so He was a little more controlled!). I'm REALLY tired after my journey here (more on that later).

Stay tuned for more of my adventures over here - it's sakura, cherry blossom season and even though I've only been here a few hours, I've seen a few and had to listen to Her go on about them - She thinks they are amazing and a miracle of nature and She just goes on and on and on about them (but that's ok really because we are all so happy to be back together!).

Woof (or should I say sayonara?) for now.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

All terrain dog, originally uploaded by Wonder Westie.

In honour of St Patrick, the patron saint of my country (even though I haven't lived there for a while, I'm still Irish and I still have my Irish woof accent!)I thought I should show you all a photograph of the wonderful, beautiful country that is Ireland so here is a photograph taken of me, just after we returned from Dubai in 2007, in Connemarra, Her favourite place ever. And mine too - because, I can tell you, the beaches are PAWSOME, the walks are amazing AND I'm allowed go into the pubs with Them and everyone makes a huge fuss of me.

St Patrick is the patron saint of the school where She went (not that many many years ago !) and every year, there was always a Mass (and still is, of course) for all the girls and their parents so She never forgets St Patrick's Day. And of course, He never forgets either. St Patrick was actually born in Scotland, but he was taken to Ireland as a slave, apparently, and even after he escaped back to his family i Scotland, he returned to Ireland (as I want to one day soon!!) and died there on March 17. I'm extra homesick today - sometimes, I miss Ireland more than other times and today, I miss it a lot but really, I can't complain, I had a great time at Ranger's paw-ty yesterday and I've a great life altogether! Happy St Patrick's Day or, the proper way to say it - (She just can't say it the proper way because, unlike me and Him, She can't get the Irish pronounciation correct! She tries really hard to learn but She just can't get it right - and I know I shouldn't laugh, it's not Her fault that, unlike me, She is not good with languages, but I do - I chuckle behind my paw ...)

La Fhéile Pádraig Shona Daoibh.

Woof for now.

Hello to Her

The Westie Roll, originally uploaded by Wonder Westie.

She is still away - He is helping me with the blog stuff. I am sending this to cheer her up as I know She is missing me a lot - and this photo will remind her of one of our activities - She and I love to lie on the grass and look up at the clouds. She says it's one of the most relaxing things EVER to do, just lying there, looking up at the sky, trying to make shapes out of the clouds. She says She and her dad used to do that when She was a girl, and She always laughs because She says her dad always said the cloud, no matter what shape, looked like a dragon!!!

So, I'm goodly and I listen to her for a while and then, well, I'm a Westie, I get bored and I scoot off to play or sniff or do some circle work. Reminiscing is all very well, but geez, give me a break, it's a park, how am I expected to stare at the clouds for that long - there's too much to do!!

Woof for now.
