Pets 'n' Stuff | Happy Gotcha Day Edwin

"A little man often cast a long shadow."
G. M. Trevelyan

Usually I would be posting My Week In Words today but I had a bit of a busy weekend and I've just been too shattered to write it up. I don't know what's wrong with my lately. I'll have it up tomorrow though. Despite being too tired to write My Week In Words, I couldn't let today pass without marking Edwin's first Gotcha Day. This day a year ago I drove with my dad to Newtownhamilton to get my little man. If you want to read the story behind us getting Berty (Eva's chihuahua) and Edwin then check out this post. 

Anyway! I just wanted to mark this special occasion with a post to look back on. I want say Happy Gotcha Day to my little man, Edwin. I can't believe it's been a year! It feels like just yesterday I brought him home, squealing in the car. He still hates the car. In many ways he's just the same but in others my baby boy has grown up so much. I was never disappointed that I didn't get Berty's brother as I'd planned because as my mum always says "What's for you won't pass you." So I knew that the one meant for me would come along at the right time and he did! He was such a small wee thing and I thought I'd found the tiny chihuahua I wanted. Little did I know he'd grow into a bruiser but just perfect to keep me warm at night. It's funny how what you think you want and what you need can turn out to be so different. I was also paranoid that he wouldn't love me and prefer Eva or something. It used to stress me out something shocking! I seen how protective and close Eva and Berty were and was worried we wouldn't have that. However once I stopped worrying I was able to build our relationship. Different to Eva and Berty's but right for us. 

So here's to Edwin, my chihuahua man. I've had an amazing year with him. Seeing him grow up into this peculiar little dog. He's quirky to say the least, but just perfect for me. I look forward to spending many more Gotcha Days with him. To finish up this short post here are some photos from the day I got him until yesterday.
