The Scottish Terrier and Dog News was absent last week mostly due to taxes. I had four sets of taxes to do — two for me and two for my late mother. And as you can no doubt imagine, it was brutal. But it’s mostly finished now and I vow to bring you extra Scottie news this week to make up for having gone AWOL.
Let’s keep with the dogs-eating-things theme for now. Bridget does not destroy shoes or furniture or anything else in the house. If given the chance, however, she will devour entire dog toys including a variety of rubber balls. She also likes to eat sticks on her walks and, it being spring, she treats herself to a mud pie or two on every outing.
Last week after she was groomed, I bought her an antler bone as they had been recommended to me and I worry about giving her regular bones, which she destroys with her powerful jaws and have been known to cause, cough, digestive issues.
Well, she did not like the antler chew at all and has completely ignored it, which brings us full circle to this cartoon.
P.S. If you’ve never had a deep fried Mars Bar, you should try one at least once. You can say the Scottie News made you do it.
