Westie Merchandise that Benefits your Dog
By Jeff Cuckson
There are many places to find Westie merchandise, but before you make a purchase for yourself or your Westie, consider first a retailer or non-profit organization that uses sales of Westie merchandise to benefit the breed.
WestieMed, Inc. is a non-profit organization that specifically targets rescued Westies that are injured or ill. Along with donations, WestieMed uses sales of Westie merchandise to pay for medical care for these special-needs dogs while homes are found for them. Westie merchandise that can be purchased from their gift shop includes clothing, novelties, home and garden items, greeting cards, and Christmas ornaments. They also benefit from sales of Westie merchandise purchased through their affiliation with Westie Breed Store when the buyer uses the link at the WestieMed website. They can be found at http://www.westiemed.com/.
The West Highland White Terrier Club of America, Inc. also offers a small selection of Westie merchandise in their fundraising effort. Their merchandise includes limited edition collector plates with images of Westies, and a few articles of clothing. Their National Rescue Committee, which is responsible for rescuing older Westies and placing them in new homes, has a larger collection of clothing and small items of Westie merchandise for their fundraising efforts. They can be found at http://www.westieclubamerica.com/. There are also links at the site to affiliated Westie clubs that are using sales of Westie merchandise for fundraising.
In addition to non-profit organizations, there are a number of retailers who have Westie merchandise available, from which a portion of the proceeds is donated to dog and animal welfare organizations. Michelle's Bark-n-Purr Toy Store is one such retailer, and offers a selection of specifically Westie merchandise, including clothing, toys, bedding, pillows, and greeting cards. Their website is at http://www.micheleswesties.com.
Also if you are looking for a lovely portrait of your pet, then look further than the website at: http://www.portraitsofpets.co.uk
If you are looking not so much for Westie merchandise but merchandise for your Westie, consider Rescue Pet Store. This retailer offers a broad spectrum of everyday pet merchandise, such as beds, collars, grooming tools, and carriers. Rescue Pet not only promises to donate 10% of your total purchase to animal rescue organizations, they let you choose the organization before you complete the sale. They can be found at http://www.rescuepetstore.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc.

Comment: As a groomer, I've dealt with a number of Westies, and learning how to strip their coats is a technique a lot of owners don't know about. Correct grooming requires a bit of knowledge and experience, which I'm always happy to share with my customers. Westies are one of favorites, though--such feisty little guys.
