Whalen, the Westie

My story is about a 4 month old Westie named Whalen. He was born in a puppy mill and was purchased by a man who abandoned him. The local Westie rescue chapter was notified and the puppy was turned over to them. I had just turned in my application to adopt a puppy and, as fate would have it, Whalen and I were matched up. He is a healthy 2 year old now who just graduated from "basic training". His brother, Piper, was adopted by another family. Piper was very ill in the beginning but is doing very well today. We participate in the local Westie Walk fund raiser twice a year and the two boys get to see and play with each other.
