Margaret writes in memory of Smitty: “I am sad to report that I have just lost my faithful Smitty, the light of my life. He had been strong and healthy for ten years, with a calm disposition and charming manner. It was a tumor and his dear little heart just couldn’t hold out anymore, though he managed to make a brief recovery, providing a blessed week to think a miracle had happened and modern technology of sonograms were all wrong. As we know, there is no life worth living without a Scottie. Smitty was the grandson of Peggy Sue and he really was quite special.”
Margaret will be getting a new Scottie puppy later this month.

Flashback to this winter when Devon wrote: “Thought I’d share some photos of our 6 month old Scottie pup coming in from the snow. Shortly after this photo was taken we shaved off his fringe. He’s now snowball free!”
Hockey fan Mark wrote the Scottie News after the World Junior Championships in January. “As I was saying … He’s been moping around ever since Team Canada collapsed in the third period … (ha!) Actually … my Westie used to crawl into my hockey bag, too – I thought it was because of the “nice” smell … However, this bag is brand new and hasn’t even been used once! I guess it’s a “Terrier thing” …
Every day should be Halloween when you can rock a witch costume like Julie’s Scottie.
More photos still to come.
