Westing Marhing in annual Scottish Christmas
Get your Westie ready for the Annual Scottish Christmas Walk through the streets of Alexandria, VA, Saturday (December 6). All Westies are invited to come and kick off the Christmas Season with this Scottish walk for Westies and their humans in support of Westie Rescue. Each year we march through the streets of Old Town Alexandria to the amazement of the hundreds of onlookers to show one and all the BEST dog from Scotland and play with other Westies. Come dressed in Scottish or Christmas colors for both humans and dogs. In 20013 we had over 100 Westies marching! Location: All Westies will meet at the Safeway at 500 South Royal St Alexandria, VA (Near Washington, DC in Northern Virginia) Date: Saturday December 6, 20014 Times: 9:30PM-1PM Water and treats for the dogs will be provided.
