It was party time Sunday, September 2nd.  Czarcrest Westies hosted a Black and White puppy party to evaluate Richard Bumstead's 12 week old Scotty litter of 3 (2 girls and a boy) and Michele Czarnecki's 10 week old Westie litter of 2 (a boy and a girl)


Also attending were Teri and Mike Crouch, Susan Jenkins, Gail Nottenburg and Mark, Barb Roman, Diane and Brett Searle, Dr Mary Ann Sheller, and Carol Walker. 


Special thanks to Diane Searle for orchestrating the table of food and drinks, which was enjoyed by everyone.


Richard, Susan and Michele evaluated each puppy and then Dr Sheller gave her perspective on what she looks for in a healthy puppy.  It was a fun and educational afternoon, with plenty of good food, great conversation, and of course, five adorable puppies!

April 2018

On April 9th, 2018, Michele Czarnecki, Czarcrest Westies and the Westie world lost a great friend and advocate for our West Highland White Terriers.  Judy Baird has been a friend and co-owner for the past 18 years and has owned and titled 10 of my dogs.  I will miss her tremendously and will never forget her.  Judy fought hard but lost her battle with cancer.  Rest in Peace Judy.

CH Czarcrest's Cure For The Blues UD GO RE MXP OJP NJP ME RATM ("Curtis") had a fantastic weekend doing what he loves to do ... Earthdog!  Curtis qualified in both Master and Senior classes in both tests held by Madison Area Dachshund Club on Saturday September 2, earning his third and fourth legs toward his Endurance Earthdog title.  On Sunday September 3 at the West Highland White Terrier Club of Northern Illinois test, Curtis qualified again in Master and Senior for his fifth leg to earn his Endurance Earthdog title under judges Susan Thurlow and Shawn Nies.


Owner and trainer, Carol Walker, could not be prouder of Curtis, however, this is some debate on just how many ice cream cones he should get!

May 2017

Michele recently had a scheduled conference with John's nurse at Active Day.  She brought Jazzy along, as they all enjoy seeing her.  As soon as she came in, the manager Maria swooped Jazzy up to take her to visit with the patients while Michele was in her meeting.  When Michele was done and went looking for Jazzy, this is where she found her.  She was on Maria's desk helping her with her paperwork.  Maria had also taken her for a walk to the pond with some of the able-bodied patients since it was a beautiful day.  Fun was had by all!
