One look at a westie and they make you do anything

I was in town and the PDSA were there trying to get people to sponsor an animal. I normally don't have time for speels and like to do things in my own time, but maybe it was the lovely weather or the fact I had just treated myself to 2 pairs of jeans that made me stop and listen to this mans speel.

He didn't ramble for long but the whole time I was thinking "keep letting him ramble there is nothing he can do or will say that will make you sponsor one of these animals today".

At the end of his speel he says "lets have a look at the pets you could sponsor" he showed me a piece of paper with 6 animals on it and I pointed and said "that one" without taking my time to decide. he said "that was quick". I told him "its 2 westies I have. my choice was made up the second I saw her".

Her name is Jasmin and I know its all a gimmick really and that there will be a million other people out there sponsoring Jasmine but this has just proved that I was set in my ways on not sponsoring. a quick glimpse of a westie and I was signed up.

Darn Westies lol
