Westie Kids, 02-25-09 with Permission from Suzanne Renaud to use her wonderful Westie artwork.

We are the proud parents of two West Highland White Terriers (Westies) and live in So. Indiana. NICKY was born 12/14/96 in New Hope, KY and we claimed the little bundle of white fur on 04/19/97. He was born with a hernia so his breeder had him neutered before letting him leave his birth home.

We adopted Abby, known then as 'Blue', 03/27/99 and the pair are affectionately known as The Wild, Wild Westies! She didn't have as nice a childhood as Nicky, however. Abby was apparently born into a puppy mill, bought, then brought to an Ohio Westie breeder when a pedigree wasn't produced. Westie champion breeder, Beth McCutcheon of Wee-Hy-Lynn Westies also does Westie Rescue work. Beth cleaned up the little gal, got her shots up to date and had her spayed before she was ready to go to her new home.

The Westie Rescue lady, Debbie Owen from WestieMed, that we worked with in our area had met with us and determined that we would do just fine as an adoptive family! Debbie has become a valued friend of ours and is always just an e-mail away to ask her advice with anything Westie! No one was positive about Abby's birthdate, but we decided on 07/20/98 as close enough, since she started teething shortly after we got her.

Nicky and Abby have a fenced-in backyard to romp safely in and they go for leash walks almost every evening (sometimes with other doggy friends!). Come back and visit our webpages any old time - we're glad to have visitors...THE WESTIE KIDS...Aug. 2001

P.S. BE KIND TO YOUR PETS (They were created with God's grace)
