Getting Back and Sophie Wins a Big Event!

It's been quite some time since we've updated the blog. What with summer vacation, the start of school, going to the WHWTCA Centennial, and other things, the blog has been neglected. But as the coolness of the fall has arrived, it has also prompted us to tell all of what has happened in the past month.

In earlier September we attended the Centennial (the West Highland White Terrier Club of America's national specialty show). The show was significant because it marked the 100th year of the the club in the U.S. If you are a Westie owner, that show was the place to be as national and international Westies mixed for a week.

The big news for us at the show had to be Sophie (pink/green), a daughter from Ming's first litter and Audrey's sister. We have not had a recent picture of Sophie until now. Sophie is pictured with Patti Marks, a long time Westie breeder and owner of Nevin, Sophie's and Audrey's sire. Sophie is pictured here after receiving 4th place in a field of 30 plus Westie girls in the fifteen to eighteen month class. Patti did a great job grooming and handling Sophie - look how pretty Sophie looks. Sophie did a great job walking for Patti. Pictured below is her big ribbon.
