Pupcam! A remote-controlled car, a pup and a video camera. A little Friday diversion. The pup seems to be enjoying himself.

Link failure.

Has this site already become a victim of linkage flooding?

So cute. I WANT THAT DOG! At first I felt sorry for him, but you're right, in the second movie he seems to like it. Funny how he only gets brave when the car isn't moving.
Thanks for the laughs!

Looks like it needs IE on windows. If the site doesn't work, here are links to the actual movies in WMV format:

Movie 1
Movie 2

aacheson - that breed is a West Highland White Terrier which I grew up with and my sister has to this day. They are very bright and alert (which of course also means yappy). They aren't great with kids but get along with other dogs. They don't do too well with cats.

Thanks zsazsa for posting the direct links!

vito- i had a westie that loved my kids and now lives with my husbands aunt and her three cats. As long as the cats will play with her she likes them just fine, but she put the smack down on my friend's Chow. She also LOVED the snow.

Great dogs. Love that jaunty little tail.

domino - I think I was being wildly unfair to the breed when I said not good with kids. One of our Westies was a not-fixed male, and he was very, very aggressive. I'm sure a neutered male (like the female we had, God bless her soul) would be fine around little ones.

They were originally bred to hunt vermin I think, and ours were never able to distinguish between vermin and cats (insert your joke here)

Can I have a "GW cam"? Pretty please? It would be more fun than a pony!

Domaino, I love the tail too. Tails are so expressive anyway, but theirs takes the cake.

Totally off-subject, this morning my little parrot was preening my dog's furry tail. Then he (the parrot) must have begun thinking that the fluffy tail felt a whole lot like the back end of a female parrot so it started this weird sex dance ON the dog's tail. Poor Griffey (the dog). He sat there looking misearable while my husband and I howled with laughter at the little parrot trying to bonk a furry tail. We finally stopped him, but god, it was funny.

Sorry...but I'm still laughing and had to share that.

Taping a camera to your rc-car and fuckin' with the dog.. my idea of a fun afternoon!

Thanks essexjan, this is easily the 11th cutest thing I've seen all year, and I see a lot of baby ducks and squirrels every day.

Wow, I guess someone's in a crappy mood, eh Hildago?

Well, I thought it was funny. My "thanks" still stands.

What? I was serious. Geez.

My apologies. I read it as snarky. I take it all back...

I grew up with both Westies and Scotties due to my mom's seeing a picture for Black and White Scotch.

They're tremendously loyal, faithful, animals.

This made me laugh and laugh. Thank you!

Westies are great little animals. They resemble three month old polar bear cubs. (and here)
