I had a Westie 40 years ago, and she was more of a doer than a talker, but everyone loved her!

You have owed me a copy of the Westie magazine (Popular Dog Series) plus expedited (FedEx 2nd day) shipping -- both of which I paid for -- since early March 2010. My email to you is now being ignored; the last reply I received was that some supervisor would be consulted. Is your business in financial trouble? That's the only reason I can think of for such behavior!

We have two male westies, brothers from same litter, Rupert & Bentley. They are adorable at 18 months old. They follow our westie (Heidie) that died at 11 years of age from cancer. We're so happy that we got two litter mates but this is only for the brave, as two westie pups are 4 times the work as one.

I guess I have a few questions? Will a Westie interact very well with an adult cat/female? Also, does a Westie shed much if at all. We have a few family members allergic to cats so trying to be careful with a puppy.

I had wanted a Westie for 10 yrs. but kept rescuing strays. Two yrs ago my wonderful "Rewind" died suddenly and my son wanted to take Abbey the Border Collie. So I had my chance and found a wonderful breeder in Evening Shade, Arkansas - no joke. I picked out a male and after having him for a month -he seemed lonely so I called back and got a female also- his half sister. The male "Murphy" is by far the more docile and loving and easy to train. His sister, Millie is much more hyper. I've had 2nd thoughts that I shouldve gotten another male - maybe next time.

I am currently the Mom to a westie who fits the profile to the letter!! Brody is always busy and requires alot of attention. He is a rescue, our second one, and I find it necessary to comment on why we see this breed being given up time after time because they"require so much work". Your article makes mention of the physical appeal of a westie - that cute bearded face and round, black button eyes and nose. However, as you also stated, they require a lot of exercise, and must be given the opportunity to work at what they were bred for. I wish we could do a better job in educating prospective buyers of these cute little bundles of energy on the demands that they will have as they grow into an adult dog. Too many end up discarded and abandoned. And then there are the puppy mills in which careless breeding produce pups with multiple health problems.

I never miss a chance to spread the word about rescue work for all breeds and the training and care that must be given to pets so that they can become the loving member of the family they were meant to be.
