Who is Mr. Wigglebutt?

This is Sherlock, a Vizsla born at the end of 2013 who, when excited, wags his tail so hard his whole arse wiggles uncontrollably which led to the nickname “Mr. Wigglebutt” (He actually has 17,000 nicknames but we’ll get to that another time):

This is my wife Leslie, mother of my children, owner of Sherlock and formerly sane human being:

Back in February of 2014, Leslie and Sherlock met and became one.  Ever since the fateful day of their meeting, you never see one without the other.  Many people say their dog is part of their family but those people don’t take it to the level Leslie does.  As a result, Sherlock goes EVERYWHERE with our family and if there’s some place he’s not allowed, then that’s probably someplace we don’t need in our lives anyway (according to Leslie).  Here’s a sampling of some of Sherlock’s adventures with us over the past year:

Hopefully you get the picture.  As a result of Leslie’s devotion to Sherlock, she’s become quite the expert on all things dogs:  dog health, dog recipes, dog reading, choosing a puppy, dog toys, and just about anything else you could imagine related to dogs.  Since Leslie has put so much time and effort into her dog, and dogs in general, we thought it would be a good idea to channel her interest (read to mean insanity) into a blog so she can share with the world!  So wherever you are on the scale between “I’m mildly interested in dogs” and “I’ve gone batshit crazy because I love dogs so much”, this blog is for you.  Enjoy!

  1. My sister has an 11-month-old vizsla and my other sister calls him “wiggle butt.” I was so excited to come across Mr. Wiggle Butt on Instagram and love this blog!

    1. Kelly, I’m glad you like my blog. My life has clearly changed since we got Sherlock. He’s a goofy wigglebutt, I’m sure like all other Vizslas. Does your sister have a IG account or do you have photos of on your IG account of your Wigglebutt? I’d love to check it out. Thanks for visiting and please come back.
