Welcome Home, Gromit!

We've been mulling over this decision for months now. We weighed the positives and the negatives. We re-worked our budget to see if it would work - then to make it work. We researched, asked questions and found out everything we could to make the best decision for us and others involved. We thought about it and thought about it and thought about it and finally made a decision...

Meet our newest family member, Gromit!

Gromit is a 2-year-old male West Highland White Terrier (Westie) who is full of energy and loves to have his belly rubbed. He was a stray picked up by animal control and then put up for adoption when nobody came to claim him.

We had been researching Westies and even found a litter of them born recently in a town nearby. After deciding that we didn't have enough time to properly care for a new puppy we came to the conclusion that we would look at shelters and rescues to find an adult dog that would love to sleep all day and play with us all evening and on weekends. After weeks of searching these organizations we came across this scruffy dog (not believing that we actually found a Westie in a shelter) and had to go meet him. We fell in love with him immediately and knew we were going to take him home.

After a weekend of shopping and getting our home ready for him we were finally able to pick him up today to welcome him to his new home and his new family! We're so glad he's here!

Gromit came to work with me for a little while today.
He helped himself to my lap and made himself comfortable.

I think we wore him out! Right now he's asleep on the floor right next to his crate
(which he hasn't fully explored yet).
