Nessie's mom says: Nessie (or 'Ness'), was named after the Loch Ness Monster (Westies are from Scotland). She was a Christmas present, and was about 7 weeks old when we got her. She's doubled in size (and energy) since then, and loves to chew on people's socks. She's a bundle of energy and is always the life of the party. She is getting brave enough to jump off the couch, and doesn't really know what to make of snow. When confused (or ready to play), she can be characterized by her tiny (but meaningful) bark and wobbly scamper.
