5th annual Westie walk

The West Highland White Terrier, commonly known as the Westie, is a Scottish breed of dog that has a distinctive white coat. 

Other related breeds include George Campbell's Roseneath Terrier and Pittenweem Terriers. 

The breed is popular in the UK and is in the top third of all breeds in the US since the 1960s.

At least 60 of the dogs took part in this year's Westie walk in city park on Sunday. 

According to reader and contributor Jackie Bear, the dogs were again lead by bag-piper Kris Watt.
