Well what can we say but THANK YOU!! To each and every one of you that supported Westie Walk 2012 in whatever capacity you helped.
Whether as a volunteer, attendee or a donator, we are truly thankful to you all.
The weather was cold but this did not stop people coming out to see us.
We had the opening ceremony and then the blessing of the animal poem as read by Nathan Mendoza. Nathan then read the Rainbow Bridge poem and our Piper Jimmy Mitchell played Amazing Grace. We all took a moment to remember those precious furkids that have crossed the Rainbow bridge, we all shed some tears .
But then it was time for the main event, Jimmy then led the Westie Walk itself around the park playing Scotland the Brave on the bag pipes, the dogs seemed to like the bagpipes and some of them even sang along!
The costume event was a great success and we even had one of our Hunt County Breeder dogs Wynda place in the finals. What a turnaround for her, just a few short weeks ago she was a breeder dog living in despicable conditions and now she is in her forever home winning prizes in costume events..Way to go Wynda!!
We had some fantastic prizes for the silent Auction and raffle with lots of goodies for sale in the WRNT store.
The kissing booth was also another success, boy those westies really are sassy!
We raised some very much needed funds and all the proceeds from Westie Walk will go directly to the care and rescue of our current and future Westies.
If you attended and have any photos you would like to share then feel free to send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on our Facebook page!
We hope you all had as much fun as we did and once again THANK YOU from the bottom of our Westie hearts.
Here’s looking forward to the Ice Cream Social in the Spring of 2013.

A big Thank you to all our donators listed below, we are truly grateful to all of you!
We would especially like to take a moment to Thank the families of 2 very special ladies.
Betty Bilderback & Becky White.
Betty had a wonderful collection of Westie memorabilia and requested that donations be made to WRNT on her passing. Betty’s family donated some wonderful fence art to us and these were sold at Westie Walk this this year.
Becky, again had a wonderful collection of Westie items which her family kindly donated to us along with some other wonderful items. These were also sold and used at Westie Walk.
To both Ladies , Thank you, even after you are no longer with us in body, your memory, kindness and love are still continuing to make a difference in the lives of the little white dogs you loved so much. xxxxx
