Two share title of Cutest Pet in Westlake

Westlake's Cutest Pet(s) for 2019 are Shelby and Jett Hornack.

Each year the Westlake Historical Society holds a contest to find Westlake's Cutest Pet. The money raised goes toward children’s programming at the Clague House Museum.

This year, as in all years, the competition was fierce.

It is our pleasure to introduce to you, our readers, our 2019 Cutest Pets: Shelby, age 3, and Jett, age 2.

Although not the first year for a tie, 2019’s title of Cutest Pet in Westlake will be shared within the same family.

Pet dad, Bill Hornack of Westlake, wrote a bio about Jett and Shelby that we would like to share.

Their breed is known as Teddy Bear, a mix of Bichon Frise and Shih Tzu. Shelby loves to play fetch, while Jett could care less. Both really love attention. Shelby will go to anyone, while Jett worries about stranger danger at first. Their favorite toys are anything that squeaks! Favorite past time: trips to Florida. They love the ride, love going into the ocean and the pool – true water babies! And their trips to the flea market in their stroller, and to get all the attention they can get.

The historical society looks forward to seeing both Jett and Shelby at many of our events in 2019. Shelby and Jett will serve as mascots for the Westlake Historical Society throughout the year. They recently enjoyed visiting Santa at the Clague House Museum this past December. 

The Cutest Pet in Westlake is an honor for both the pet(s) and the owner.

Congrats to the Jett and Shelby and pet dad Bill for being selected the Cutest Pets in Westlake!

The Clague Museum will host Valentine photo shoots on Jan. 23, 5-9 p.m., and Feb. 9, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Please contact us for your reservation, 216-848-0680. Proceeds benefit our community and outreach programs.
