Client Comments and Updates - 2017

Denise - Sleeping Westies

"We think that our Samy has adapted really well to his new home! He
wakes up at 7:00 am and is ready to go. He has been out walking quite a few
times and loves it! He likes Sadie (our 15 year old) better than she likes
him... haha... But she is definitely starting to warm up. We could not be
happier with him and his disposition. It was nice meeting you and I am so
glad we came in contact with Westie Whispers."

- Denise and Tim M.

"We got home safe and sound. Phoebe was a fantastic traveler. She is adjusting well today and doing great with her potty training. We are grateful for our new puppy. Thank you." 


- Andy and Marta S.

Riley Westie

"Hello! We adopted little Riley back in August. I believe his mamma was Crystal (his birthday is June 24th). Here he is now, in all his Westie glory! I thought you would like to see how he is getting on. He has the nicest temperament; the only terrier I have ever know that doesn't bark (except when my husband is shoveling snow). He is a sweet snuggler and too smart for his own good! We just adore him and wanted to thank you for allowing us to bring him into our lives."

I thought you'd enjoy this picture! Norman has settled right in!"

Oliver Wallace aka Ollie is doing very well. He has a wonderful playful personality. He likes to play with the cats and they are starting to accept the fact that he's here to stay. He loves to dig and knows it's okay to dig in the sandbox and not the garden (most of the time). He likes to hide bones in the house, in plain sight, and pretend no one can see them. He is a fun dog, very bright and is training well. Thanks!"

- Heather and Dave V.

"Buddy is a Great Westie. A smart little guy doing wonderfully.  Couldn't be more pleased.  Thanks."  


-Bud J.

"Norman is officially one of the pack and loving every minute of it!"

"Patti and Martin
Ruby and Chief have assimilated into the pack quite well and Piper (the male we got from you 8 years ago) has taken over as their protector.  He is with them every time we go to the back yard. They are smart, very playful, digging some and love running around in the backyard. We really enjoy the new members of our family."

- George H.

"Kenzie is adjusting to her new home. Mia is patient with her new sister.
Thank you so much for our wonderful Kenzie!"

- Teri and Rick I.

"Patti and Martin,

It has been almost a year since our Westie was born. We have had a great time getting to know each other. Josi is a very happy puppy and is getting along very well now. I will also send some pictures showing what a little character and a clown see is. Thank You both for doing such a wonderful job with your Westies."


- Ron and Jo Ann M.

 I just want to thank you for the time, patience and information regarding our recent acquisition, Arnie.  You were so helpful and your information so accurate.  Used every tip and a have a beautiful Westie in the making.  They really learn fast and respond so well. He has one beautiful spirit.  Thanks again."


- Nicholas T.

"We (Stella and I) skied up near Allenspark, Co. So excited to show her the world, can't imagine life without her."

- Tonya Z.

"Hi Patricia!
Just saying hello and letting you know how pleased we are with our two boys-Frank and Willie!! In the picture below, we requested a Westie cut....guess they don't cut a lot of Westies!!!! And our new baby boy, Landon! They are really wonderful with him, Willie doesn't really enjoy him but Frank can't stop licking him!"

"Hi Patti and Martin. This is Lacey from Isha and Orson’s litter, September 2014.  We have been so happy with her in our lives.  She was brought home to Kansas originally, but we are now living in Colorado and excited to be considering another new addition from you, hopefully later this year.  Pictures: Lacey likes her snowsuit for the Colorado snow. She has started agility and is also a registered therapy dog bringing smiles to people everywhere."


- Gina F.

"Hi Patti, just thought I would send a photo of Doll Boy Jackson on his 1st Birthday... He is not happy with hats or balloons at all, so this is all we could get... "


- Cynthia F.

"Hi Patti,

Hope all is well.  Thought I might send you our latest cutest picture of Lucy and Rosie (Crystal 6/24/16). They are doing well, are full of energy and get into mischief all day long!"


- Mary Ann D.

"Hi Patti, JJ's first day went great and he slept through his first night. He is so smart and learns fast. We have started his potty training and he has already did his potty three times outside. He thinks the snow is very interesting , we make sure he doesn’t spend too much time outside. He’s a great addition to our family. Thanks again."

" Hi Patti!  We have been taking Bailey (changed from Pippa Patience) to swim.  She loves the water, which is ironic since we live in the desert!  But, there is a dog training facility in town where she can swim in an indoor pool.  She has also started basic puppy obedience and is making good progress.  Happy little girl - thank you so much!"

- Patricia N. and K.B.

"Chopper and Huey... Home safe and sound! Three days in a car and two hotel rooms... These guys were wonderful 💕 travelers!
Their first night home, they experienced their first rocket launch... and slept through it! I guess we tuckered them out!
Thank you for being wonderful Westie breeders. I already notice temperament differences. Amazing how easy going these guys are!

- Christina and Paul L.

Hi Patricia and Martin,
I picked up Ogden on New Years Eve and I am so happy with my new bestie. Looking at all the other comments and pictures of families who have added a puppy to make a three Westie pack is cracking me up. I was questioning my sanity but now I realize it's normal Westie owner behavior. Ogden is healthy and happy and thriving in his home. He very willing to follow the rules and has learned the basics very quickly. Thank you for your awesome program and your attention to healthy happy puppies.
Thanks again!"

"Dear Martin and Patti,

I am so proud to announce that my sweet little Lucca, offspring of Sawyer and Omen, born Nov. 2, 2012, has recently been awarded the 2017 the American Red Cross Southeastern Colorado Hometown Hero "Animal".

Lucca has brought us so much joy over the past four years!  He became a member of the Go Team Therapy Dogs last year and our life has become a whirlwind of volunteer events.  I wanted his sweetness to be shared by anyone who needed love.

Please enjoy the video that was shown at the Hometown Heroes awards at the Broadmoor March 16th!"

As we near Binkley’s 6 month birthday, I wanted to give you an update on his life in Tampa.  He is…wonderful.  From the moment we picked him up, he has been calm, confident, self-assured, fearless, curious, affectionate and always hilarious.  He rarely barks.  He has developed an interest in chasing lizards, squirrels and cats.  Likes to dig.  Has played fetch exceedingly well since he was just a few weeks old.  We have another Westie pup who belongs to dear friends and close neighbors of ours who was born just the day before Binx; they play together frequently.  However, Binx is quite a bit bigger. 

We were worried about whether our crabby 13 year old female Carin would accept a pup after she lost our 12 yr old Westie last Summer but…Binx has won her over.  They play together frequently.  He is a charmer.  He and the Carin come to work with me every day.  In between naps, they get several walks and lots of attention from the girls here at the office.  Binx seems very happy, but I don’t think he can be as happy as we are with him.  Thank you so much for allowing us to adopt him.  I didn’t think I would ever recover from my terrible grief in losing Wiley last Summer, but there is no way to be sad around one of your pups.  Thank you again."

- Maureen D.

Thank you for posting the pic of Michelle online. Now I see where my Acini gets his size from. He's 22lbs but very fit, a wonderful disposition and I would highly recommend your kennel of dogs to anyone. Thank you!"

- Michael C.

"Hi Patti and Martin ... We named him Finnegan “Finn.” Both Linda and I thought the meeting experience in Centennial was great – we enjoyed seeing all the other pups and casual/welcoming atmosphere.  Here is a picture of Linda and Finnegan. Thanks for raising such great puppies."

"The boys are doing great."

We made it home. Honey was the star of United Airlines. We had to spend the day at The Mileage Club where she brought much attention.
I tried to introduce Honey to her play pen, but there was much howling. I finally put her on my bed where she fell asleep and I'm happy to say she slept all night.
Thanks for everything and pictures will come if I can ever get her to sit still!"

"We adopted Ruby and Chief in January.We got Riley and Piper from you 8 1/2 years ago and they are so very healthy and happy.  Ruby and Chief are so gentle and sweet.  All of the Westies get along well. Here is a new picture of Ruby and Chief."

- Vail H.

"My husband Seth and I are the proud parents of two of your beautiful, wonderful and loving Westie girls, Bella (7 years) and Zoe (7 months). We LOVE our little girls SO much and they really became BFF’s, we are lucky. Bella is more submissive (but can put Zoe in her place if need be) and Zoe (especially being a pup) is more active and outgoing, so they work well together. They are both the most loving, kind and beautiful dogs.  

The photo is the girls back in November when we first got Zoe."


-  Stacey C.

"They do have fun together!"

- Christina L.


I want to attach a few photos of our beloved Westies from you. Maddy (11 years [I think] and Macy, almost 1 and 1/2 years)  I wanted to update you on Macy... who you got to love on a few extra weeks!

Just know we love our pups!

Macy is getting really good with fetch. 

Thank you, these dogs are simply the best, and are also super healthy and happy!"
