We are a small home kennel living in the beautiful Cowichan Valley which is situated between the Sea and the Mts on Southern Vancouver Island
My adventure with West Highlanders began because my husband always wanted a dog "like the small white terrier that used to come and visit while I was working on restoring the 1962 Jaguar. I used to have to bath him all the time as he used to scratch his back under the car" ( bet the owners loved that!!) So one Saturday morning in 1989 we set off to Cornwall to pick up Duncan and also bought home Victoria, they were named by my homesick husband for the two cities we had lived between on Vancouver Island.
Duncan was everything a Westie should not be on the outside and everything they should be on the inside, In his 161/2 years he taught me something everyday.
Sleep well my lovely boy.
By 1995 I was besotted by the breed and during a visit to them from our home in Canada my wonderful parents gave me Furzeleigh Celtic Magic AKA Lady or "The Bug"
She introduced me to the show world winning Best in Match at her second outing. She seemed to think that was it for the show ring i.e. been there and done that ....and refused to play anymore!
Furzeleigh Tartan Major joined us in 1997, between them they made some lovely babes who play in gardens all over Vancouver Island.
In 2002 Can Ch Hopecharm Steady Under Fire made the long flight to Canada with me, In 2003 Can Ch Hopecharm Ladyleigh flew out with Can Ch Hopecharm Under Fire and so the next chapter started.
We aim for LOVELY INSIDE AND OUT
