Bandit, the Yorkshire Terrier

Ever since I transplanted myself to Seattle, Washington, almost two and a half years ago, I have always wanted to lease an apartment of my own in order to bring my former Yorkshire Terrier, Bandit, to come live with me. But because of the exorbitant pricing of housing accommodations here in Seattle, that was merely a pipe dream. All the while, my three-and-a-half-year-old Yorkie was staying with my parents in Orlando, Florida. 

I had not seen my baby in over a year and a half before I was able to schedule a flight home to see my parents and my dog after signing on with the Veterans Affairs Health Administration for my government employment.

Last July, I was able to take two weeks off to go home to visit my family and my dog. After quite and an emotional reunion between my dog and I, Bandit passed away unexpectedly after I was able to only spend one whole week with him. I miss him dearly and I continue to miss him dearly. 

Please see pictures of Bandit below: 

Well, now that I have signed a lease to a new, one-bedroom apartment in an area I absolutely love, I have decided that I wanted another Yorkie in my life. 

I have put a deposit down on a gold Yorkie, and his name is Bandit! The breeder was going to keep him because he was the runt of the litter and she felt he was too small to send away to a new home, so she would have to keep him for up to four months in order for him to grow into size. I told her that if that is the case, I would like to put my deposit down on him and to purchase him when she deemed he is ready to come home with me. 

Everyone, meet Bandit! He is the lost one in the center :).
