I'm so proud of Vickie Claflin! Here she is as part of three large Westie rescues from Puppy Mills! Thirty-three little West Highland Terrier dogs were rescued!
A total of 33 little white dogs will no longer live in abhorrent conditions, being bred as often as possible, used up to make money for a human who does not care about their comfort or emotions or little personalities.
I thank Vickie in my heart several times a day as I love and receive love from Annie and Mackie.
More here and here
Vickie moved back to Maryland last year, and we have missed her terribly. We still stay in touch via the Internet.
I was just so thrilled to see Vicki's picture and read of her involvement in the rescue of these 33 precious little dogs! She is wearing a LSU sweatshirt in the pictures.
Vickie especially hated to part with Mackie. He had been with her family long enough to work his charms on every one of them!
He is the one of our brood of six Westies who is the most active. Stealth Westie. Warp Speed Westie. Ninja Westie. You'd never know he had spent his entire life (before rescue) in an apartment.
Yesterday, Gordon took some video of Mackie circling the riding lawn mower, barking at it and trying to herd it. You will be seeing it soon on this blog.
These two photos are from Sunday afternoon on the meadows between the house and the public gravel road.
Vickie, THANK YOU and the other volunteers with Maryland Westie Rescue for this heroic rescue effort.
