Birch Bark Westies since 1992

Jim ribbons

 Birch Bark Westies was established in 1992, when my first home bred champion was born, CH Birch Bark Mac The Knife. Mac, who had the lines of tried and true New England pedigrees, taught me how to show a westie as he was show dog and he did it his way. He was a beautiful sturdy dog, and I finished his championship by showing him myself in the Bred By Classes.


The lines of which Birch Bark was established, and was begun, was upon the addition of Country Girl Erin O Birch Bark bred by Linda McCutheon. Erin brought the English lines to my program, being the daughter of famed Montgomery winner CH Stergo Bronco Billy. Erin was bred to Mac and then line bred into my program.


Strong dogs not owned by Birch Bark that were contributors  and line bred into my lines, were AM CAN CH Elsinore Opus One, ENG AM Champion Whitebrier Jollimont, ENG AM CH Olac Moonblaze, CAN AM INT CH Oaklunds Max Mekker, ENG CH Lymehills Drambuie, Eng CH Hopecharm Willie Maket, AM CH Raglan Its All About Harold, ENG CH Lidenka Branigan.


We throughout the years are proud of either breeding, or owning over 20 American Champions, including Canadian Champions. Birch Bark Westies are proud to boast of many Best in Breeds, Group Placements and Specialty and Sweepstake Wins.


More importantly than winning in the show ring is having good health, temperament and intelligence. My Westies are known throughout the Westie world of being sweet and friendly and full of fun and fire. I strive for Westies who are genetically healthy, and study every potential breeding, looking as far as Europe to assure a good breeding to assure qualities.


Most of the Westies I breed go to live and be parts of families. I continue to receive wonderful letters and pictures of my puppies and adults that were placed over 15 years ago.


My Westies are apart of my family. I do not have a kennel, and have a small manageable amount of Westies at all times that live in the home and sleep in the human bed.


I am very proud of my lines and the care of which I take to assure the best of the breed.
