Not so long ago I wrote a blog post introducing my little Syrian hamster Chester, in that post I mentioned how from a young age I've wanted my own little West Highland Terrier named Harry. Sadly living at home I've always been told that I'll have to wait until I have my own place but over the last weeks everything changed!? I caught my Mum searching for Westie's on the Internet only to find that in our area they're almost impossible to find at the moment, we also checked rescue centres for any up for adoption, with none to be found. Despite three of us (me, mum and Dan - brother) all wanting a little doggy friend we all knew it would be IMPOSSIBLE to talk round my Dad....he had plenty of excuses, looked at me incredibly weird when at every opportunity I'd switch to Westie's...thanks to the neighbours owning one it wasn't always too obvious to my game. Then at the weekend when he'd come in from seeing his friends I started off the last hinting match, including a picture of my little friend with a lot of talking he offered to go with me to see them (Monday.) With him driving and me giving directions via Apple Maps we got there and guess what we're getting a HARRY!!! We pick him up on the 5th (today depending if this post goes up on time).
As soon as my Dad set eyes on Harry he couldn't say no, he even Aww'ed before me, half joking to take his brother too. Though his brother is the smallest he'll be snapped up in no time. At first I had his little brother but after switching to Harry I felt a 'connection' with the little guy and I'm pretty sure he did too. Am I mad!? After checking out his gorgeous Mum and Dad we left to go shopping for basics. Shopping for Harry has been a lot more confusing than I originally thought, he can't have all the cute items just yet because he'll tear them up!? Though I hope he just carries on licking my clothes rather than running off with shoes. He's a taste for Topshop Leigh's, could we be any more suited ;) Dan's still in shock we're getting one, my Dad's constantly teasing me that Harry's 'alright I suppose' he LOVES him and Dan's just called to tell me he's trying to get Monday off to come along to pick little Harry up, god we're going to have a house of four boys!?
