Memories …

Memories of a cherished and still very much loved Scottie. Twenty-Eight years ago, this very day, a scottie pup joined my household and changed my life in ways I never knew would happen. Martimm Agnes of Sparhawk, known to friends and family as Agi, she has left a wonderful legacy of my enduring love for this fantastic breed. She now resides in my heart as she crossed the rainbow bridge in 2003. Photos of her are scattered all around my house and of course here on our blog : to which I must thank my current 5 scotties for allowing me computer time to write this post. Thank you Agi, for being you.

It’s Christmas!

Oops, been absent for a while. Mama has been ignoring our demands to get on the computer, but we’ve wrangled her to the ground and crated her for being stubborn. Here’s our Christmas card to you. That us five pulling someone who looks eerily like Mama and if she didn’t keep shaving her beard off, we wouldn’t be able to tell the difference !!!

Merry Christmas everybody, hope everything is Merry and Bright in your households.

Our Christmas Carol


We’ve been far too busy doing absolutely nothing this year, so we’ve had to dust off our 2014 Christmas Carol (again) and hope that we can inspire everyone to be merry and bright during the forthcoming festivities. So start practising your arooo-ing as we’ll try for a global sing-along later. This carol is also mentions many of our good scottie friends that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and so our thoughts are with their peeps …

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere we trot
Take a look out the garden gate, wishing we won’t be late
To meet with friends, especially that new Scott
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
barking all the way
isn’t it great to pee, on your neighbours christmas tree
Until we’re chased away

Bowls of nourishing treats for Scotties to eat
Is the wish of Kyla and clan
Peeps that don’t talk but will go for a walk
Is the hope of Wally and Sam;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for the day to start again.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Especially round our tree;
There’s a tree on our christmas card and two in our neighbours yard
The sturdy kind that doesn’t mind our pee.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
With Stuart and his art,
And the thing that will make us glad is the happiness you’ve had
Right within your heart!

Scotties scattered worldwide, we laugh and we’ve cried
to read about our friends
to visit their sites, to comment and write
is the love that never ends
And all us Scots can hardly wait for the day to start again.

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon all Scots arooOOoo
And the thing that will make them stop,
is the turkey that you drop
right within their view!
