2.  Current News About PETA!

Posted with permission from author, Randy Cassingham!

After more than 100 dead dogs were dumped in a trash dumpster over four weeks, police in Ahoskie, NC, kept an eye on the trash receptacle behind a supermarket. Sure enough, a van drove up and officers watched the occupants throw in heavy plastic bags. They detained the two people in the van and found 18 dead dogs in plastic bags in the dumpster, including puppies; 13 more dead dogs were still in the van.

4. A Photographic Celebration of the Dog!  Last Reminder!

A first-ever of its kind canine photo exhibit will be on display at The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog in St. Louis beginning February 25, 2006.

A Photographic Celebration of the Dog will include photographic images of canine companions of all walks of life by amateurs and professionals. Informal 4x6 color snapshots will most likely comprise the majority of this photographic extravaganza with everyone in the fancy encouraged to send a favorite canine picture for this special event.

5.  Send Us A Photo!

We designed our "Friends" page to allow you to send us pictures of your Westie, even if it is not a Down South Westie.  We will post your picture and comments for 30 days.  When you send me a picture, be sure to comment that it is for the "Friends" page.  We love hearing from Westie friends and enjoy posting your pictures.  Let us hear from you soon.

6.  Westie Supplies!

We get multitudes of emails asking what we call typical Westie questions.  We have questions about what kind of shampoo we use, dog food we feed, grooming questions, and the dreaded questions about skin/allergy problems, etc.  Be sure to see our "Westie Supplies" page.

Another good source is our "Links" page where you can get info related to puppy care, doggie manners, pet friendly motels, grooming, AKC site, as well as "Ask A Vet".  I have just added an interesting Animal Behaviorist site.

Also, we have a lot of info on our "WestieGram" page.  There are past WestieGrams that might answer one of your questions.  Check it out!

7.  Got Your Pup Yet?

Due to our long wait list, we know some may grow impatient in waiting for one of our pups.  If you are on our wait list and have gotten your pup from another breeder, please let us know.  If you are growing impatient, please feel free to get your pup elsewhere, but please contact us so we can keep our wait list up-to-date.  There are a lot of good breeders out there who have a very good, healthy line of Westies.
