Puppy Love And Go Bears


We recently had a new addition to our family. Meet Mr. Finley. Mr. Finley is a West Higland White Terrior (or shall I say TERROR?) puppy. He is very fun, always hungry, loves to bite and is full of piss and vinegar.

He loves to play, he loves T.V. , he loves his toys and he loves his Dalmation brother. His Dalmation brother, however loathes him and wishes we would take him back to Memphis from where he came.

Above is a photo of Forrest, his Dalmation brother muttering Latin obscenities under his breath , cursing the day Mr. Finley was born. Since Finley's arrival Forrest has taken to only speaking Latin out of rebellion. Dalmations are strange.
Finley's ancestors are from the highlands of Scotland. The name Finley translates to White Warrior in Gaelic- the native language (before English) of Scotland. Finley loves to stay true to his Scottish heritage, so he plays the bagpipes around the house. Just one of his many talents.

Finley loves to shop for coats. His favorite store is Marc Jacobs. Marc Jacobs uses big buttons. The big buttons give Finley a lot of chewing entertainment. What good is a coat if you cannot chew it to shreds?

This is Finley showing the MonkeyPosh love. That's how he rolls.

Since moving to the Chicago area, Finley has become quite the sports fan. This is him getting ready for the Superbowl. His Bears scarf is his favorite article of clothing at the moment. He gets lots of compliments. This town is on fire for the Bears, and even though I am not going crazy for them, it is exciting to be here when everyone is excited.

Finley and I will be watching the Superbowl, and I hope you will too. A few parting words from Finley:

Have a SUPER day!

Bless his little heart. He is getting so big. I love the picture of Forrest cursing him. Yikes! At least Finley is clueless to the curse words at this point.

His outfits are adoreable and I love the bagpipes. I want to *smoosh* him

What a sweet little dog! He is adorable, as are his little ensembles. It just makes me melt when dogs look like they're smiling in pictures. Finley is quite photogenic!

I love little Finley. And, poor Forresto (a.k.a. Guido) Guerrero... he is appreciating his Latino heritage. That's all.

Cracking up at that picture of the two.... love Guido's expression.

Finley is the cutest!!

THANK YOU everyone for such nice comments about Finley!

To the new visitors--Thanks for stopping by.

And Elke--too funny about him having his own blog. That is priceless. I will keep that in mind!

Lovely day to all!

He is so cute! I love the photo of him and Forrest! Maybe you need a third doggie of Swiss descent to garner a peace agreement between the two brothers.

Enjoy your new baby!

He is a jolly little mite. He seems to be jolly in spite of the Dally loathing him. Do you reckon they will become best of chums? I reckon they will soon enough.

His outfits may just rival some of yours. From your photos you have quite a snappy taste for apparel.
My chums and I admire your style.

Kiss to Mr. Finley.

OMG, J, Finley is absolutely adorable! I love the outfits and the thought that you put into his name.

But tell me: You really have a bagpipe? Being a descendant of the Bruce family (you've heard of the black Irish, but did you know there are black Scottish? Sorry, I couldn't resist!), I am completely impressed!

Finley is all decked out and ready to party!

Bless his heart, and he is so, so cute. Love his attire. Forrest looks so cute too.

I agree. He needs his own blog.
