Welcome to our blog! We ARE the terriers! We have finally demanded equal rights
for web space...so here we are! We're sure you will find variety in our blogging as there are four of us, and while
we may look alike, we have very different views and personalities. We hope you will continue to visit us, and even send
us an email-that would be awesome!
Since we have been known to "speak"
and "show" our minds...you may be embarking on an enlightening journey through our site. We can be a little forceful
at times, but for the most part, we just enjoy life! Thanks for your visit! Who knows how are site will grow?
Basic Intro by Hanna. That's me on the far left in the pic...yea I know, I'm cute.
As you can see there are four of us-3Westie girls and one Scottie boy. (We have a cat Kearsey too, but she's camera
shy...maybe later) We range in age from one to thirteen...yea, I'm not sure ANY of us was too happy when the puppy arrived,
but I digress. We all got together and decided it was time for us to have our "own" place to talk-so here we are!
You'll find we ALWAYS have SOMETHING to say. Read more about us on the ABOUT US page (look left). Later...

I am in charge of the groundhog family that live behind our yard. I am the ONLY one who really
cares where they are at. Would you believe a few weeks ago, while we all were quietly sunning ourselves in our fenced
in yard, one of those groundhogs had the audacity to sneak in behind me and grab a pear! Well I showed him!
Lucky for him he got under the deck where we couldn't get 'em! Course with all our yelping and carrying on, we had to
go inside, but we left him know, "STAY OUT!"
4:32 pm edt
I (Hanna) want to report, with the weather changing here on the east coast, I am shivering alot lately.
You wanna' know why? Because a few weeks ago, I had to wear a heart monitor on my back. And you know what they
did? They shaved my chest area and up my sides-now I don't have any hair there. I tried to tell 'em I just GOT
a hair cut, but they didn't listen. Any way, I only weigh 14lbs, you know how much that monitor weighed? OVER
1 lb, and I HAD to carry it on my back. I kept losing my balance and bumpin into things. (I didn't think it was
funny) After all that, and shaved skin, they didn't find anythin wrong-go figure. Two weeks later I find myself
at yet ANOTHER doctor, and they are now shaving my belly and sides. Then they put cold jelly on it and rolled a machine
around. What will humans think of next? So...I'm cold.
"Somebody fell way behind..."

We, the Terriers, formed a mutiny because our blog has not been attended to in months. It shouldn't
matter that Hanna had to have a kidney ultrasound and had to be taken for numerous other tests, nor that Rori finally got
spayed, or that Darby developed a bladder infection, or that we all have to keep going back to the vet every so many weeks
because our owners refuses to allow us to get more than one shot at a time, and Trevar...well he's just Trevar -one of the
guys. So we stared and stared and wouldn't budge until she sat down and signed on to "The Terrier Bloggers."

A Busy Week
7:27 am edt
Hanna: Well it’s been pretty busy ‘round here. Dogs going for tests, outside work being done for Spring (yay), and hair cuts for everyone!
Trevar: Finally got a hair cut-seems the women in the house always get
there’s first. I heard a “rumor” I might finally
be going back to school. (The little one always seems to be going to school) I like school, especially agility.
Darby: Yesterday I had to go to the doctor.
They poked me with needles, and I couldn’t have my breakfast at home, but I did get it later at the doctor’s. I thought I was gonna’ starve!
Rori: Well my Bile Acid test (whatever that is) from last week came
back fine. My owners were really happy.
Yesterday I went with Darby to the doctor’s for more tests-I guess that means more waiting. My belly has healed great and I can run and jump and have fun! I’ll
be starting school again on Thursday! Yippee!

The Bile Acid Test Day
7:49 am est
Rori: Well I was a little scared on Monday. First of all every
body got breakfast but me. First they want me to eat, then they
don’t want me to eat-somebody should make up their mind. I
figured somethin’ was up when I was the only one to get in the
car. But I was happy to go along. We finally
stopped and they
came to get me out of my crate and … “oh no! guess
doctor’s office again.” I was a little nervous cause
the cut my belly last time I was here, but I still
crooned and talked when I went in. Next thing the doctor came
and got me and took me in the back room, I kept looking
cause I didn’t know what was happening. He took out
my stitches (he is very nice), and then stuck a needle
in me (ouch).
I went back to my owner and I thought we were going
took me to the car to feed me (which was
really strange, I never ate in the car before). After I ate we took
a short walk and THEN…she took me back inside, and left me
there! I was really upset, but I kept a stiff upper lip, and lots
of people talked to me. Then two hours later they took more blood
leave some for later”) Any way my owner came and got me
finally, and we went home. I was tired so I fell asleep early. Now
we wait for the results of my Bile Acid test (sounds
weird if you
ask me). Any
way, I feel better today, no stitches, good breakfast,
and I’m ready to chase the squirrels!
We Went see the Champs
7:35 am est
Trevar: On Saturday, me and Rori went in town, to welcome
home one of our local girl’s high school basketball
Nativity Golden girls! We watched them play
on TV and then
a few hours later we got to see them in a fire truck
They won! We saw lots of people waiting for
them to come
home...of course people stopped to talk to us too.
suddenly we heard the fire trucks and wow...there
of noise and whistles and cheers! Every body
was so happy,
and the team waved to everybody from the buses.
It was really
with all the fire trucks, but I didn't mind, I just watched as
all passed by.
Rori: It was my first parade and I have to say, when the fire
truck blew the fog horn right in front of us,
I jumped! It was
really noisy, but it was a lot of fun. Our owner kept talking to
us, so we weren’t scared at all. I don’t know if the Champs saw
us, but we saw them and they were so happy! We met some
nice people too…I think I like parades.
Hanna: Yea, well I think I should have gone too. Nobody asked
had to stay at home with Darby. Hey, I like parades, and I
coulda’ shown them how to have a good time, but
noooo I had
to stay home!
glad they didn’t take me. I really don’t like loud
noises. Since I was adopted at two years of age, I didn’t have
a lot of experience outside of a kennel, so I
get a little more
scared of different noises. While I wanted to go wherever the
car went, I’m glad they didn’t take me to a loud

Hanna: Ya' know if people were like dogs,the
world would be
much better. Not that there wouldn't be
they would be valid disagreements...like "hey
get outta' my
food bowl, I'm not done." Now that's something
about! Barking in my face or not playing
when I want, is
grounds for discussion, but not an out and out
know what I mean? What I'm tryin' to say
is, choose your
battles wisely, and make sure if you have to argue,
something valuable like food, not because someone
understand you. Did you really tell them
how you felt?
Think about humans. (Yea, I know-it's deep
for a dog...but
let's see if ya' can get it)
Trevar: Boy she gets a little too deep for
me....in other words..."Don't sweat the small
too much fun to be had!"

10:42 am est
Hanna: I woke up this morning and went for
a potty break
and had to come right back in-it was too
Where 'da heck is Spring? It was 29 degrees
for goodness sakes!
Darby: Just let me lay in the cool
green grass and bask
in the warmth of the sun.
Trevar: Ah yes... this weather is invigorating....manly
Rori: It's all pretty fun
to me...I just need to get
these stitches outta’
my belly-I have squirrels to chase!

10:38 am est
Darby: Well I felt sorry for the "little one."
I tried to teach her early on, not to swallow pieces of objects, but you know youngsters...they don't listen. It was
pretty nerve wracking until we found out what was wrong with her. She just kept pacing and pacing. It was good
to have her home again, but I'll just never understand why she insists on growling at us when she comes in the door!" Hanna: She smelled
like medicine-eeeeeiuuuuu, when she came home! Of course she was getting a lot of attention, but we still all got our
fair share (they're lucky). I finally just started to play with her, and then she had to go and swallow something, and
worse yet, let it get stuck. So now I can't play
with her cause she's got stitches in her belly. Better her than me...I get my own trips to the vet for bloodwork- seems
I'm always getting poked and prodded. Well...I'm just glad everybody is home,
but I heard she has to go back for more tests...something 'bout a liver shunt? Trevar: I have to admit, even though I missed her, I was kind
of liking that I was the youngest once again. I was pretty put out when she first came (I thought I was the owner's
favorite). But now I'm ready to rough and tumble and she can't, although she wants to. Guess I'll have to
wait for a few more days. She was really pretty out of it for awhile. Rori: I don't know what the fuss was
all about, but man did I have a belly ache! I couldn't sit still or sleep! And I didn't want ANY food at all!
I went to the Drs. one night and they x-rayed me, and saw a little bit of gas (oops) but nothing else. So they
said if I'm no better, I had to come back. Ooooohhhh that night was awful, my belly hurt so bad! Well first
thing in the morning we were on the road to the Drs. again. The x-ray now showed LOTS of gas, so off to surgery I went!
They said I did okay. They pulled out a piece of toy from my intestines. I have some stiches too! But I
just really didn't want to wake up which concerned the Dr. So now I am going back for a bile acid test to check
for a liver shunt-whatever that is. But I am feeling much better, and eating pretty good too. I want to play and chase
the squirrels, but I'm not allowed to, yet. But I do feel much much better!
Hey, guess you can tell we are under construction...give us a break...we're dogs...we have to wait until "you know who"
types in our stuff.
Watch for special commentaries on the world at large or at our house...could be very enlightening.
