Meet Whiskers V


This is our new puppy....Whiskers the 5th.  We pick him up next week and the puppy fun begins.
Oh how we dread the training of a new puppy, but we are so excited to get him.  If you compare the pictures below you will see he looks exactly like Whiskers IV did when he was this age. 
We fell in love with him immediately as he came running right to us and jumped around playing with his toy, chewing on Jon's fingers and my toes.
We went back to the place that we got Whiskers IV, because they are such a great kennel.
The "peoplelise" their puppies from the start.  They have teenagers come in daily to play with them.  They take them out in the grass to play and teach them to lay on their backs and not be afraid.  They were not expecting us and he was so clean, fluffy and smelled good.
We feel God blessed us as this little guy is 8 weeks old, is being weaned this week, has had his shots and will be ready to be the new member of the Fricker household next week. 
Forgive the blurry picture but he just wouldn't stand still long enough to get a good picture! :)

Such an adorable little guy. How big will he get? Don't envy you the training, but afterward will be well worth it. Enjoy! Edna

Thanks Edna! His mother weighs about 12# and the father about 19# so he will be around those weights. Westies re small dogs and they do not shed. Fits nicely on my lap! :)

Oh my goodness - what an adorable little guy! Don't you love it when one comes running right to you - it's like THEY pick YOU! It's so great that that kennel loves their babies so very much. I hope you keep us updated with photos of Whiskers V as he grows and also as he learns new tricks. :) God bless!

Congrats on your new puppy! What a cutie!! I have never seen you when you are not smiling, but the smile on your face holding that puppy is a new puppy smile. There is no other smile like it! Have fun!!

He is absolutely adorable. My nephew in Texas are soon selling the same kind of puppies and it will be difficult for them to sell them since they have grown attached to them since they are so friendly and loving.
