I can’t believe Story is five years old today. We got her right after we got married (which also doesn’t seem like nearly five years ago). We (or at least I) put sooo much thought into what breed to get for our first dog. The ACK describes the Westie as “a small, game, well-balanced hardy looking terrier…possessed with no small amount of self-esteem.” It is absolutely true! Story is one of the friendliest dogs I’ve ever known. Especially now that we have shy Kate, it’s clear how different dogs’ personalities can be. Story has never met a stranger! She is also the very best cuddle dog. Very rarely do I sit on the couch without her on my lap.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of her from the last five years. Happy birthday, my favorite Westie!
