Hi everyone. This is Lilie the Westie.
Here's a photo of me and the Mummy human from several weeks ago. She says she hopes she doesn't look too bad in it. Personally, I know I look cute, because everyone tells me so. Anyway, here it is:
Next, here are a couple of photos of me from a week ago:
See... Cute, right?
Anyway, I finally got my turn for one of those birthday things on March 26th. So now I'm a whole year old.
This meant new toys!
The ring toy was OK, and I have been playing with it, but I especially liked the bear...
I also really enjoyed figuring out the puzzle toy the humans got for me. They say it's a "level two" puzzle... Whatever that's supposed to mean. All I know is I thought it was great fun getting the treats out of it. They said I was really smart and did it quickly too. Here's a video of me figuring out the first piece of the puzzle:
They put away the flashy thing after that, because I wandered off, and they thought I was bored of playing with it. But I came back soon afterwards. Things kept distracting me, but I kept going back to the puzzle. Even with getting distracted, I managed to complete the puzzle in four minutes.
The humans say I'd have done it faster if I stayed with it instead of wandering off several times. In fact, they now know I can do it faster, because they let me play with it again yesterday... Three days after my first attempt... I didn't get distracted, and I did all four parts of the puzzle in two minuts.
Even the first time, with how the time stretched out because of me getting distracted, I still did it much quicker than the box says I should have been able to do it, which the humans say makes me really smart! Mummy says she's glad she skipped to level two, and didn't bother wasting her money on getting me the level one puzzles. I'm not sure what she means by the level thing, but she sounds proud of me when she says it, so it makes me happy.
On top of that, the humans ordered pizza for dinner that night, and I got to share, which also made me happy. I got a new big rawhide bone too, which made me even happier still. Here I am on the big bed with the bone:
I think I like birthdays! I'm already looking forward to having another one!
Lots of licks,
