Hi Patti & Martin!


We picked up our pup Murphy from you near the end of March 2021. Since then we have had no shortage of joy in our house. Murphy was the most well-tempered, well-behaved 8 week old puppy either of us had ever met, and it was evident to us that Westie Whispers is the best of the best. Murphy was potty trained fairly quickly and though it was very chilly in the middle of Alaska during April, he was excited about the remaining snow! We took a trip to Florida for the summer and it was so fun to watch him learn to swim, meet other dogs and run free chasing squirrels in the yard. He also loved to sit and watch the birds- which we thought was particularly precious. He’s learned amazing tricks - sit, stay, come, “crate” and most invaluably “leave it” showing amazing self control when food or other items drop on the ground. He’s also learned to give us his paw and will offer it unprompted if he sees we have a treat for him. So cute! We came back home to Alaska and in October we welcomed our first child. Not surprisingly, Murphy is amazing around the baby! He loves to snuggle up next to him and has even brought him his toys on many occasions- I cannot wait to see them grow up together. He’s almost one year old now, and he is such a perfect family pet. We are so grateful for him! Thank you for all you do!

Dear Patti and Martin,

Thank you so much for our little Mac (son of Tinsel and Butler—born Jan. 14, 2021).  Today is his birthday, which we will be celebrating later with some special treats.  Mac is such a special Westie.  He loves to play and go on adventures with his big brother, Finn, fetch the tennis ball, chew on sticks, and most of all—snuggle with all of us.  We are so grateful!!

Best. Dog. Ever.

Blessings for a Wonderful New Year,

Milo is doing well. He’s such a cutie. And he’s starting to understand “hurry up” Milo, going outside.

The vet says he’s healthy.

Thank you!

Dear Patti,
Happy new year!  Mayhem is doing fantastic and will be 8 months old in the next couple weeks! I wanted to check what your wait list time is for puppies. We definitely want to get a boy for Mayhem to play with (she looooves playing with other dogs!) but wanted to strategize on timing so we make sure she’s through her adolescent phase but not too old to want to play!   Here’s a photo of Mayhem as a pup and a photo over the holidays of her playing with Jason’s parents’ 75 pound poodle!

Hi Patti and Martin,

A year ago today my husband and I took home our 8 week old furbaby, Jonah, puppy #3 of four males from Lando and Jasmine's litter. (He also is related to our beloved, Bentley from Abby and Sebastian's 2005 litter).  Although they look very much alike, our "Jojo" is all terrier! (Bentley was a bit more subdued). His favorite place to be is outside basking in the sun or romping in the snow. He loves to watch TV, play fetch and tug and has a sweet and playful personality.  He has enriched our lives immeasurably and we want to thank you.

With gladness, hoping you are all well,

I just wanted to give you a quick update that sweet little Dobby (Mr Orange 😊) made it back to Phoenix and was a perfect little traveler. He's been such a sweet boy and we're having so much fun with him!


Thank you!

Hello!

Happy New Year and I hope y'all had a great holiday season. Ace is doing great with us. Kippy adores him and I know he loves getting her attention. He is allowed to free roam just in my room but he has more than doubled his weight since we brought him home. He has been to the groomer a few times and our groomer says he does very well. He is still very bitey but we are working on that. He sleeps through the night in the crate which I got one much bigger than when he started.

He loves to have cuddly toys and constantly picks up small plush to fit in his mouth. Every time he has one, he tried to give us kisses and cannot understand why he can't give us kisses. It's quite funny. He did some puppy training and while he was scared by other dogs and people, he is now doing much better. No tail tuck or barking constantly. If he can see it, he will watch. Some sounds are still scary but we will continue to work on it-like the printer.

Thank you again and I hope you and your family and Westies all have a wonderful year.

Sincerely,

Leah S.

Winnie has a great night last night. She slept until 5:15 am, asked very politely to go potty and then did her business and went back to sleep until 8. This morning she’s a little more playful.

I wanted to share a photo as well.

Thank you so much for being such wonderful caretakers. We love our girl!

Good morning, Patti and Martin,

Just wanted to check in with you all.  Ellie is doing great!  She is a little fireball and loves rolling around and playing with her cousin Gronkowski.  She is just about fully potty trained so that's really nice.  She's going to meet my parents this weekend and I know they're going to fall in love with her instantly.  Thank you both so much!
