"Is this thing on?"

I don't know about grubby but I agree with the sweet. Hooray Parsnip!
Dec 7, 2007 MisterFuzzyPants
This is the umpteenth cute puppy I've seen now. There is nothing like an adorable fuzzy terrier. Your cat looks like the perfect match for him!
How on Earth can you keep him so white, though? He certainly looks like he has a knack for getting into all sorts of messes outside. The little bone charm you have on his collar is cute too!
An umptillion of the most formidable biscuits for your cute terrier!

What a sweet little dog Parsnip is! I love those eyebrows - very distinguished.
Dec 7, 2007 PIPPIN
Parsnip, what a great name you have. Love your scruffy look and with your big alert ears you'll hear everything. Continue to have fun with your mixed family of chickens, humans and cat.

There is something about the scruffy face of a terrier that gets me every time....a breed full of energy....I wish I had their Christmas to Parsnip...I'm sure Santa will bring him lots of bones and toys.

Dec 7, 2007 doriesmom
AWWWWW, Parsnip is so cute!!!! He is so soft, cuddley, and adorable. How many puppies would wait until kitty was asleep and then just lay down beside it, not many. What a sweetheart. Enjoy him. May you have many fun filled years together. I would be interrupting your outings, too, just to reach down and pet him!!!! ;-)
Dec 7, 2007 rosy

Dec 7, 2007 westiemom
Parsnip, what a beautiful boy you are. Don't worry, you'll grow into those ears (smile)! And what a good boy for getting along with the kitty! To Parsnip's Mom - I know what you mean about crashing at night. Westies, and terriers in general, go-go-go all day then just zonk out for the night -- all that energy! I wish you many happy years together. Love and kisses from our Westies, Missy & Fionna.
Dec 7, 2007 anniebabes52

Yes, Parsnip,

You are as sweet as they come. Have many happy sweet years with your family.

Dec 7, 2007 Posh Tater
How sweet you all are! This is Parsnip's mummy just writing in to say thank you for all the lovely best wishes and kind thoughts. We are very excited to have Parsnip featured on The Daily Puppy. We've enjoyed so many other people's cute puppies, this is an absolute privilege. (Parsnip is asleep on the desk to the left of the keyboard. I'm sure he would wag "Hi!" if he knew I was writing.)

We're going through the teenage phase at the moment where commands aren't even guidelines, simply "interesting words Mummy and Daddy use"!!! He's still a darling though. If nothing else.... EARS!!!
Dec 7, 2007 roscoeroxypepper
I Love him!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dec 7, 2007 bopeep
Parsnip you have quite the variety of life going on and it is good you are learning to get along with all kinds of life. I would love to see you with your chickens. Have a happy life you little cutie. Hugs, kisses and 11 biscuits.
Dec 7, 2007 pomtzu
I don't like parsnips at all - however I could become addicted to this Parsnip! He looks so bright and cheery that I have to just sit here and smile at him.
Love the pic of him with his kitty sister - so peaceful. The lion and the lamb?????
Many happy times to all.
Dec 7, 2007 meyekidsrgr8
When I first say Parsnip's picture on my screen (it was about the size of a postage stamp) I thought he was a white bunny! What a sweet little puppy.
Dec 7, 2007 harry's mom
A cool name for a cool dude!

I love this photo, it's just like home.

My friend has a Westiwe called Fergus and just like Parsnip he uses what he is told to do as a guidline to what he really wants to do. He is 16 years old now and he has never chenged!!

Best wishes for Christmas from Harry and his famiy in Scotland, may this be the first of many together.
Dec 7, 2007 ttamore

Dec 7, 2007 CelineBeforeSunset

Dec 7, 2007 stormsamson
Ah-ha, at last! Finally, Saskia is sleep. I can snuggle up and catch some Z's! What a sweetie pie. Difficult to select a favorite photo this time because they are all great. I wish you many years of blessed health and lovins!

Dec 7, 2007 marleysmom
First of all, the name Parsnip is adorable and he's got the cuteness to back it up. 11 Biscuits!
Dec 7, 2007 Tuskist
it's a bunny......
Dec 7, 2007 Posh Tater
Really, it's not a bunny.

(The poop scooping gives it me!)
Dec 7, 2007 puppypac
Adorable puppy and sweet and funny name. I'm sure it describes him well. He's a winner for sure! :-)
"Hellooooo out there!"

Aw, Parsnip, you just made my day. And as a law student with exams in a week, that's no small feat!!! I love terriers and Westies are just so fun. Bright big bundles of energy & love, that's for certain. And I just think your name is the cutest! Hooray for you and your family: people parents, cats, chickens and all.

Happy Holidays :)
Dec 7, 2007 dogsrdivine
Never met a Westie I didn't love. Parsnip looks & sounds like a heart-stealer alright. I too, thoroughly enjoyed your write-up about how he got his name & what life is like with this special little guy. I hope you all have a long, healthy, happy life together. Thanks for sharing.

Dec 7, 2007 piobaire
Ha...I love this little face...sort of a sideways smile. And so much personality here. A fun name to for this little ball of fur. A most excellent way to start my day by seeing little Parsnip. About a million biscuits and tummy rubs for such a cute little boy.
Dec 7, 2007 nancy814

Dec 7, 2007 Border Collie Mom
What a lovely narrative, I enjoyed it as much as the pictures of this little sweetie. Thanks.
Dec 7, 2007 carollevy
oh Parsnip, you adorable little buddy boy,
You bring back memories of my little Wookie, what a character he was!

I know JUST what your mom is saying, you little Westie guys love to get dirty, and the dirtier the better! Then bath time is a lot of fun too - the drama!! And in no time, it's time to get dirty again. Love love love to you and your family!!
Dec 7, 2007 mandykw
OMG Parsnip is the CUTEST name I have ever heard! He is such a cutie, give him lots of squeezes for me :)
Dec 7, 2007 Frasier'smom
I just LOVE the ears!!!! Parsnip's eyebrows give him such "personality" too! In the first couple of "pics" he just looks like a little "detective" on the hunt!!!! TOOO CUTE!!!! He is just a beautiful, snow white do you keep him so CLEAN and WHITE!!!?? Lots of kisses and biscuits to your little Parsnip!!!! He's definitely a LOVE!!!!
Dec 7, 2007 mash18020

Love the name! Parsnip is too cute!
Dec 7, 2007 pauz4paws
Mr. Parsnip, you "wittle waskally westie, you blew the top off the cute meter! Great name, great're adorable. Here's wishing you a Merry Christmas and a long, happy life full of fun and biscuits!
11 biscuits for you too!
Dec 7, 2007 Nilli
Parsnip, you are [i]too cute[/i]! What an [color=blue] awesome [/color] name and pics! I could chase after you all day!

My Gent on the Rainbow Bridge was named appropriately so for allowing our kitty to eat first; he'd lay down behind her, patient and loving.

Westies and their close cousins, the Cairn Terrier, are the perfect pets: smart, wily, small(er), scruffy, alert... oh the list goes on and on. My hubby and I are on the lookout for one of each... our dear friends have a Westie, and Sammie's quite the diva. She loves to be held like a baby in your arms: belly up, waiting to be rubbed. After a few lovin' moments, her eyes gently close and she dozes off. Then, WOW! Her nap is over, and she's off to more adventures. She makes us laugh out loud...

11 gazillion biscuits to Parsnip... here's to many, many years of happiness and blessed memories!

Happy Holidays!
Dec 7, 2007 SLebicz
Parsnip is soooo adorable!! Enjoy every second with him! I have a Westie and she just turned 14 years old last week and still lively and fun! Westies are such great dogs, you are lucky to have added one to your family! :)
Dec 7, 2007 randomearrings
Parsnip is absolutely beautiful; many happy years together, hugs, tummy rubs and 11+++++++ biscuits xx
Dec 7, 2007 bbba80
Parsnip, I like the name. You are so pretty and cute. I like the chewing pictures. You sound like you keep everybody busy.
Dec 7, 2007 Lizanne
Parsnip, You are a real cutie. We love how you just run and play and bite and chew and be a lovey, cuddle-bug of a puppy. I love the name Parsnip. Very Original!
Hugs from Elizabeth and Miss Katie =O)

Dec 7, 2007 puppini
As has been said so many times already - what a gorgeous Westie boy! My Molly and Angus were in here in September too! So I totally understand all the adventures you are having!!!! We refer to the guideline thing as "selective obedience"!!!!! As time passes they are getting better, but recall is a real issue when they get focussed on another adventure!!! Still, how can you resist that gorgeoua little face?? If you are anything like me, you just melt and want to cuddle him!! Enjoy your amazing little Parsnip - they are such a blessing! Merry Christmas - Hope Santa Paws find you Parsnip! Westie kisses from Molly and Angus in Australia
Dec 7, 2007 britsky
I just wanted to say hello to my favourite little Westie on the web. I'm so proud that you've made it onto the Daily Puppy and look forward to hearing about your progress from your mum. Lots of love from your aunty B in Australia and a big woof & wag from Eddie too. You truly are a sweetie, but I already knew that...
Dec 7, 2007 snoopysnake
What a brilliant name you have given him! I love his extra tall ears. My aunt used to breed Westies. They're so intelligent and loveable! Parsnip looks like he's just a joy to have around.
Dec 7, 2007 goldenlover
"That sun is sure bright. Do you think they'll mistake me for the Easter Bunny?"
Dec 7, 2007 2pups1kit
A very cute, white, fuzzy bundle! The name makes me smile---can just hear you calling him---"PAAAAARRRRSNIPPPPP, come!!!"
Good luck with that "command" thing...he will probably have you all wrapped around his little paw in no time, if he hasn't already!
I thought Westies' ears folded down...does that happen later, or have I got it wrong?
Anyway, best wishes for a long happy, healthy life together!!
Dec 7, 2007 JBanana
what a sweetheart! love the name! hes such a cutie!!:)(L)
Dec 7, 2007 katieandcharliesmom
If this little man can't steal your heart I don't know what can. Love terriers, I have a wire fox terrier so I know what energy Parsnip has. I once asked the vet if Katie would every calm down - his reply was yes, about two weeks before she dies - she is 13 and still going strong. You will have many years of fun with your little guy - I love him!!! He's just tooooooooooo cute.
Dec 7, 2007 princessjill
[color=purple]so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a billion bicuts for parsnip!!!!!![color/]

Dec 8, 2007 Jean1018
Wow this is a great world to wake up to. Chasing chickens and crashing with the cat. Eyes wide open, he is adorable.
Dec 8, 2007 pupsrule
OMG Parsnip is a living doll. I am in love with his cute face and his personality (from what you say and what I can see). Love the photos - how can I possibly pick just one?
Dec 8, 2007 Yankee-7
No doubt about it, you've got yourself a chewer!
I really like Westies, and love Parsnip!
Dec 8, 2007 Posh Tater
How do we keep him clean? I have NO idea!

He goes to bed grubby and he wakes up white. I've never bathed him.

Westies have a tendency to sensitive skin so I'm not going to strip his skin oils. He has a Vit E tablet in his food every other day (it builds strong skin) ... I think the mud seems to rub off once he gets dry. Thank heaven!

(katieandcharliesmom, that made me laugh out loud!)

(2pups1kit hi! The ears only fold down on the first puppy born. It's because they're more squashed that the others, or so I've been told!)

Nilli & puppini thank you and - HI Britt!!!)
Dec 8, 2007 puppini
Clean? A Westie? Never! My guys manage a couple of hours after their bath, but are so into exploring that they are beige again very quickly!!!!
ANd the ears - when i got Molly and ANgus all the puppies, including mine had floppy ears!! They all start that way and the ears stand up when they are about 3 months old usually. Mol's stood up at 10 weeks and ANgus' never did!
Still loving those gorgeous pics Parsnip. Have fun and adventures again today, xxxxx
Dec 8, 2007 Punky
Daily Puppy read my mind! I was thinking a few days ago that it's been awhile since a Westie has been featured...then here comes Parsnip! He's such a cutie! Enjoy!
Dec 8, 2007 puppy*power
So cute! I love his ears
Dec 8, 2007 leahkids
What a precious photo! Hope you get lots of moments like that! My neighbor has the same breed dog, and she is darlin'. Enjoy and love her for many years to come. :-)
Dec 8, 2007 goolover65
I think Parsnip is the perfect name for him, and I just love the reasoning you gave. I think he did look quite like a parsnip.
Dec 8, 2007 Ldybg8879
I just got a Westie myself, and your comments could have been written by me! Mine is a girl, though, named Sesi, and she is 11 weeks old now, and such a bundle of happy energy! Looks exactly like your Parsnip, but I think they all look pretty much alike, lol. Sesi loves everyone, but isn't quite as nice to our cat as Parsnip is. She pounces on him every time he gets brave enough to come into the room, which isn't often. Have fun with your baby. We are both in for a exciting time.
Dec 9, 2007 billshoff
We have two Westies: Bailey,3 and Murphy,2. They are our constant companions and they make us laugh daily. I'm sure Parsnip means as much to you!

Looking for a homeless Westie to adopt? Go to
Dec 10, 2007 TrixAndSam
His name is Parsnip, he hangs out with chickens, so all he needs are some companions names Carrot and Celery and we have Soup!!!

Love the name, love the look. Westies are the best!
Dec 11, 2007 postiemayer
Have been off line for a week because of a nasty weather thing we had called a hurricane (in OR. go figure) so was estactic to see this beautiful boy when I finally got back on the computer. Had a very special little Westie girl for 14 years (just lost her in Oct.) and envy all the joy and fun (and yes, there will be some frustration) you are in store for with this one. Westies should never have been made to be white. If I could keep my child out of the mud (or from under the car) for 24 hours after a bath, I felt victorious. Cleanliness is not in their nature, but love is and I pray you will have as many wonderful years with Parsnip as I did with mine. Bless you all!
Dec 12, 2007 LisaLisa
Aw, Parsnip! What a sweet heart. This picture just melts my heart.
