    Hello everyone, I am new to the forums!
    I have had Springer Spaniels now for 5 years and on Thursday I have got a West Highland Terrier (Westie). She's 8 weeks old and gorgeous!
    I am here to learn more about Westies, in particular teach them not to grab socks and nip.. she's already a wee nipper!
    She's also very cuddly and we had cuddles for the best part of 14 hours yesterday! I perhaps shouldn't cuddle her so much as when we do have to go out, shopping etc - then she will be on her own and must get used to it I suppose, and cuddling her all day every day isn't going to ease that transition.
    I'm looking forward to chatting from you all soon, I hope you don't mind me posting pictures, hosted using Photobucket.
    Was banned from a forum last night for hosting off their site.. and was told I had to pay £11 per year just to use the PM feature.. If I am wrong for hosting on Photobucket please let me know, sorry.

    This was taken yesterday, at around 3pm

    This was last night, around 9pm

    As you can tell, she loves sleeping! :thumbup:


    She's having her last jabs next Thursday; can't wait to take her on walks ;)

    No, I meant you have to upload them or we will get on at you until you do. Carry on as you are. You might find the first few times they get stopped by the anti spam software, if they do and non of us notice just leave one of the mods a vm and we will approve it

    No, no. I think the poster above simply meant that we love pictures here! :) Using photobucket is fine (in fact I think most of us use it here.)

    Welcome to the forum: your little girl is beautiful! Enjoy her!

    Welcome to the forum, your little girl is so sweet. Pictures of puppies are essential on this forum as most people will tell you. :)
