The West Highland White Terrier, commonly known as a Westie, is one of the only dogs who’s tail was bred to be strong enough to pull them out of tight holes. They have a very bold personality and are very tenacious. They are great dogs for finding rats.
They look very cute and cuddly,but they are feisty and definitely not a lap-dog.
Westies are close in the family branch to CairinTerriers,SkyeTerriers,Dandy Terriers and other Terriers of Scotland.
The breed comes from Scotland,and was bred in order to clear farms,mines and estates of vermins like rats,but it took very little time until those charming dogs became family dogs.
The most obvious Westie feature is the double-layered white coat.A warm undercoat makes it a good dog for cold weather. The legend says,that the white coat was established after a tragic accident: A Scottish nobleman Edward Donald Malcomaccidentaly shot his red Cairin Terrier during hunting,because he thought it was a fox. So he decided to breed a white Terrier.
They have a bullet-shaped body,which allows them to wiggle out of tight spaces,but they still often got in trouble,so they barked until the owner could hear them,and dig them out.That’swhy,a 3rd trait was developed:a super strong tail,so if they got stuck in a hole,the owner could simply pull them out by their tails.
Westies can live in an apartment,but they have to get regular exercise.They are generally a healthy breed and can live up to 14 years.Some health concerns are: hip problems and if one lives in a sunny area-sunburned eartips. Training the breed is quite hard,because they are very stubborn,so you should have a little dog experience before you decide to take care of a Westie. Taking care of that double layered coat may be challenging,they need a lot of grooming. Because the Westie is small,children should be monitored around it.
They make amazing pets.

Hello everyone !

Wow, I don’t really remember when I wrote my last article. Never mind. I wont’t change the subject. This year I’m writing about postcrossing too. Hope you are okey with that ;)

So...Last article was about how to write and send your postcard. And you sent your postcard. Great ! Few days and you will get your postcard ! What you should do when you receive it? If you remember, every postcard has uniqe ID number. Find this ID on your postcard. Log in on www.postcrossing.com on your profile and choose option (on left, on blue) ‘register a postcard’ and write your ID; for example “US-1234”. Be nice and write few kind words to the person who sent you a postcard and put ‘register postcard’ under short message. Wait a second and you’ll see how long and how many kilometers your postcard travelled. It’s cool! Imagine: one postcard, especially for you travelled for example 9271 km!

I’ve been postcrossing user for almost 660 days. I sent 127 postcards and received 126. But it’s not all. Thanks to postrcrossing I’ve known very interesting persons. I have friends around the world: Cecily from Japan, Ruby from Taiwan, Hermelio from Brazil, Esa from Finland, Silvia from Brazil and Matthew from England. We exchange postcards regularly. We talk about our cases and others stuff. I think it is very exciting. And interesting!

How about you? Maybe you will have some new friends? If you don’t know how to start:

You have already got address and ID to write a new postcard. And up or under (I don’t remember) there is an info about person you are writing. And there will be information ‘DIRECTS SWAPS’yes/no. If somebody has ‘yes’ try and write on the postcard proposition about direct swaps ;) remember, you can always try J

What more today? I don’t know. Think about direct swaps, it is really cool. Maybe in the future you will visit your friends?? You know, place for free, food for free with a person you know, and she/he/they can show you their country, tell legends and others stuff. It’s a great opportunity to see the whole world !
