Beach House: {Aw! A Beach House Dog}

Beach House: {Aw! A Beach House Dog}

Traditional Home

I sn’t that a sweet little pup? I kept seeing his picture on Traditional Home’s website and couldn’t resist showing him here. As you might remember (he makes appearances here now and then!), we too have a little Westie named Winston, who has always ADORED the beach!

Oh my word, he loved the beach so much when he was a small pup. Just the mention of “going to the beach” would send him into shivers of joy! Winston is 14 now and doesn’t get quite as excited about much of anything, but he still loves a romp in the sand now and then (however, he moves much more slowly than he used to!).

Random question of the day:

Do you let your pets on the couch?

I saw this question somewhere on facebook, I can’t remember who was asking it but it got me wondering how you all feel about pets on furniture. Winston used to get on the furniture all the time and I was fine with it. But in his older, more delicate state, we only allow him to get up on the sofa if we have lots of thick blankets. Because, eh hem, you never know what might happen in the way of “accidents.” He really thinks he is a person so I don’t have the heart to make him stay on the floor.

As far as shedding, fortunately for us, Winston doesn’t shed and if he does leave some hair behind, he sheds WHITE fur and we have a white sofa! Yay for us, until we want to wear black pants!

How about you? Do your pets get to enjoy sitting next to you on the couch?
I know everyone feels differently about this topic so I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

PS. If you want to see part two of my parent’s beach house on the Oregon Coast, I’ve posted the rest of the pictures here!
