Sorry we’ve not been around much, Finlay is quite ill with bladder cancer at the moment. I’ve set up a Scottie Health blog to try find other scotties suffering – the blog is successful, but I’ve not found any other scotties yet. I need to find some, based in UK, who are purebred and have bladder cancer and are willing to take part in a survey. Finlay is the blogs mascot – so he is doing his thing for scotties in his own small way.

So again, apologies for not visiting your sites and posting comments. We are on the mailing list of most of you, so we do know what you’ve been up to!

If any of you are interested in seeing what my boys have allowed me to do, then please visit and join in if you can.

I don’t know how long Fin has left with us, but I’ll make sure that it’s as long as possible without causing him any discomfort.

My love goes out to you all, your contributions to my boys blog have been very amusing, you all certainly know how to entertain us humans!

I hope you all keep well. I’ll do my best to encourage Bobby to keep this blog going.


Finlay has a new baby!

Meet the newest arrival in the Sparhawk household – “Lio” the Lion – yeah couldn’t think of anything more suitable.

Fin only loves ONE baby. All the others get destroyed, ripped to smithereens, or their “squeakies” forcibly removed in a matter of minutes. All except THE ONE. Fin will just lick, and clean and lick and clean and ………. so we call it His Baby.

So, Dad went to London on Friday (reception at the Canadian Embassy, He got to wear a Silver Medal, offered him by a Canadian Rower – how cool is that – not that much in our doggie eyes!) and then he went to the Olympic Shop where he purchased Lio for Fin and a t-shirt for Her. Notice that me, Bobby got nothing!

Do I care, no not really, cos I stole Lio from Fin for a while and gave him a good old bite or two or three …….

You can see Fin with Lio and his original “baby” bottom left of picture.
