The West Highland Terrier, or 'Westie' breed was first bred in Scotland as a feisty little hunter of vermin and has become popular with the working man and royalty alike. No surprise then that over the years this little bundle of energy, with a personality and attitude to match, has become one of the most loved family pets worldwide. Adorably cute, fun-loving dogs, their small size makes them perfect lap dogs, but their super-sized egos mean they will take on the world if they feel they have to. Nowadays, thankfully, they don't get much opportunity to go vermin hunting but in Leslie Gerry's image of the Westie puppy, he perfectly captures its desire to! The pup is trying to decide whether to admire the ladybird, play with it or eat it, and this all set against a backdrop of burnt orange and purple pattern. This latest addition to Leslie Gerry's range of fine bone china mugs makes an ideal gift for dog lovers and art lovers alike and a quality piece to grace any kitchen or coffee table.
