How westies are choosing favourite person?

I was always wondering why my first westie chose not me as her favourite person. I was giving food, going for a walk, attention all day long, hugs, kisses and so on. I was so crazy about her but she chose other family member to be her favourite. And now that person is not living with us anymore but I still fell that I am not her favourite still. Well, she loves me, understands me, but she is still looking for someone else to come to our family so she could accept him as her hero.
My other westie is totally my. She cant imagine life without me, I am totally her favourite person. But its still me, the same me. So one westie is my and other is living with me 🙂 It is hard to admit but it is like it is. Lets see why it happens like this. 

First of all, it is important who they socialise with early.
West highland white terriers like all dogs have important socialisation period for the first six months. Puppies brain developing period. The social experiences westie has during this period can influence them for the rest of their lives. 
So the person who is showing more positive expierences with your westie during this period can become favored human. If there is only one person during this important socialisation period dog has not other choice. 
Pay attention that during this period is very important that westie meets many different types of people, it will help them later to be comfortable with various humans. 

Second important factor: attention and affection that improves bonds.
Here is no surprise, westies love attention and person giving most attention to dog gets favourite human badge. It can be that human who feeds, give most physical attention and love, petting, brushing, massaging, playing.

Third factor to pay attention to if you want to get favourite humans badge is: positive associations.
Westies will remember good, positive, warm feelings with their favourite human. It can be person who always have treats or always plays games. 
Ok, here is where it starts to clear out my situation. I used to train my first westie a lot. Every day. She hated that. But I read a lot books before getting her and knew a lot about their westietude and hard training character, so I wanted to rise healthy, clever, good behaved puppy. It could be my mistake. Training became negative associations with me, inspite of all attention and food she gave from me. I was that boring person who always wanted to train and train. Uh… Don’t make my mistake!

And the most important factor – dogs feel if their personality is just like theirs or not. Just like we humans, dogs also feel similar personality and dog will seek to be friends with that person of course. If dog loves to play dog will look for person who can be his/her playmate. Calm and intelligent dog will choose same personality person as favourite. 
In my case, my westie was strong minded, independent, quite selfish, rough when playing, no jokes, life is quite serious thing type dog. Its obvious, I was not her favourite person as I was opposite of that. It seems like I still have a chance to become her favourite as now we are more alike then before. Probably she is testing me, if these personality changes are permanent. And my other westie easily attached to me, because we both ware willing to smile and take life in big bites, at the moment my second westie came in to my life.

Interesting isn’t it?

Why westies love to rub their face and back?

It may surprise you, but westies usually rub their face and back to mark their territory. In other words to make their place smell like their home so it must smell like them.
You try to keep your home fresh, clean floor and carpets and here comes your westies and rub it all over with their smell as its their house. 

Other reason why your dog will rub its face in the carpet is a desire to clean its face. There are two common times that your dog may rub its face in the carpet, specifically to clean itself. One is when your dog is done eating and it has small bits of food on its face and around its nose. In order to relieve the itchy sensation from those bits of food, your dog will rub its face in the carpet to clean off the food. Another common time is first thing in the morning. If your dog tends to wake up with eye rheum (or eye boogers), it is not uncommon for it to use the carpet to clean the rheum off of its face. While you cannot do anything to avoid the need to clean its face after eating, you can wipe your dog’s face in the morning if there is noticeable rheum that occurs on a regular basis.

Although not as common as the need to clean itself, your dog may also be rubbing its face in the carpet to relieve itching and irritation caused by infections, allergies, and mites. The most common infection that would cause a dog to rub its face in the carpet is an ear infection. If you notice your dog rubbing its ears and face in the carpet on a frequent basis, look for discharge from its ear. If its ear is red and swollen, you should take your dog to the vet.

Sometimes your dog just enjoys rubbing its face in the carpet. There doesn’t always need to be a reason why your dog is rubbing its face in the carpet. Sometimes dogs simply find that itching their faces in the carpet is a fun sensation, and they will do it just because it is fun. As with any pet behavior, if you keep a close eye on the frequency of face rubbing you will be able to determine quickly if it’s being done for fun or because something is wrong.

Motivation for life

Breath in your day off, breath out your whole week. Whatever it was – let it go, whatever it brings – choose only best off it and accept. Love and be loved.

It is always interesting to listen motivational videos about how to live your life in best shape, how to enjoy, how to love, how to….

I have been struggling a little bit in my life for few years.. and these videos confused me more then made it easier. Why?

Because I forgot one thing. Those videos help us about our feeling, emotions, not about our life rules. These videos help us to survive if happened something that is against our life rules.

You know what, we don’t have to accept it, but we must learn to get it through with grace and relaxed mind.

Geting through does not mean we accept everything what happened, it means we choose what respects our values and life meaning, and still go further with relaxed mind, anyway we are satisfied or not.
We learn everytime, we learn to recognize, to choose, to value, to describe, to let go, to stay, to keep, to forget, to learn…

How to take better photos of your dog. Rule nr. 1

ALWAYS get low, as low as you can, and it is best if you reach  your dogs eye level. Or put your dogs higher so you don’t have to lay down on ground or floor.
Try it and you will see how those wonderful photos, you can’t get your eyes off, are made 😉
