On May 9th, the Chesapeake Bay West Highland White Terrier Club joined with a local public elementary school to participate in their annual fund raiser known as “Westy’s Walk”. The school is West Towson Elementary, located just outside Baltimore, Maryland, and their mascot (“Westy”) is a very large West Highland White Terrier costume character. Our club members, along with three genuine Westies joined the festivities which included walking laps around the track, being greeted by many little kids, and participating in many photo ops. We had a very successful Meet the Breed activity.
The day was a huge success, the 3 little canine stars were tired but happy, and best of all, CWBWHTC was invited back for welcoming on the first day of school next fall. Maryland Westie Rescue also participated and spoke with many interested families and provided literature about rescue activities to many more.
