Really great news M2! I am glad she is home where she belongs and a very Happy Birthday to Molly. I am sure she was glad to be back to get a slice of her doggy b-day cake.

Well, here's an old pic of the puppies; but they still look the same...



That's Molly on the left, Max on the right.

We have always had Westies, they are great dogs!

Cheers! M2

They're totally cute!
Westies are great dogs...so the million dollar question..how did Molly escape?
Do your westies like to dig? Word is they like to do so and plan their escape route. Terriers can be too smart for their own good despite their cuteness. I've got a schnauzer who likes to mess with small insects (roaches, crickets, lizards, etc.) but I've also got large boulder type of rocks around weak areas under the privacy fence, just in case.

There's some debate over that, I was flying back from Germany at the time and somehow the front door to our house wasn't properly closed. Whose fault that was is moot at this point, but once they saw the opportunity, both of the mutts headed out before anyone noticed. My mother-in-law found Max at the end of our street, but Molly was nowhere to be found. My wife and son, who were out shopping, rushed home and canvassed the neighborhood, to no avail. The folks that found her must've taken her indoors pretty quickly, as they aren't really that far from where we live and my son was looking in that area shortly after she got loose.

Yep, all terriers have a tendency to dig (hence the name, the word terrier comes from the Middle French terrier, derived from the Latin terra, meaning 'earth'). And since they were bred to hunt burrowing animals such as rabbits, foxes, etc in the UK and Ireland, they naturally are quite adept at digging! They are also very brave, the locals use to say that the one we had in Germany had “keine angst” (meaning “no fear”). He would routinely go up to the large cows kept outside of our villages.

Ours have eased up on the digging, but I still have a few places in the yard where our neighbors also have dogs and they like to try and meet up. It’s like Hogan’s Heroes, but in my role as Colonel Klink I like to think I have the “prisoners” under control!

Cheers! M2

Thanks for the brush up on a German phrase, it's good to know so I can tell my dog and have him give me the sideways head tilt!

Glad they're back home; woohoo!
