"Karson" Makes a Guest Appearance!
On August 20th a singleton Puli puppy was born by C-section to Breeders Patty Anspach and Susan McConnell of Wyldmor Kennels. Unfortunately, this Puli's mother was unable to take care of him. Dr. MaryAnn Sheller called Michele and asked if she would be willing to take the Puli puppy and raise him with CH Czarcrest 06 Karley Davidson's litter that was born five days earlier. After talking with Karley's co-owner Caitlin Hawryszkow, Michele agreed to take on Karson.
Karley was not sure about Karson at first, but now accepts him as one of her own. It's a joy to see the three of them nursing together. Karley is a wonderful mom, even to her adopted Hungarian son. Karson's parents are: CH Catsun Corinth x CH Moremi Mind Your Manners. Karleys' puppies parents are: CH Czarcrest's Cure For The Blues RN x CH Czarcrest's '06 Karley Davidson CGC.

Czarcrest Westies recently received the following note from Sharyn Austin, owner of 6 year old KoDee.........
Thought you would like this picture of KoDee and Sadie (my 3 year old granddaughter). She was "reading" my little book about Westies and said: "Grandma, I want to read it to KoDee". I told her he was outside. She sat down in the grass and "read" it to him - and he seemed to listen!!
