Dear Scottie News subscribers,

After mulling it over for a long time, I have decided to stop publishing the premium version of the Scottie News. There are a lot of reasons that I won’t bore you with, but mostly it’s because it’s time for me to do other things.

I still plan to publish occasional Scottie News updates, which will be free. And maybe I’ll return to more regular publishing at some point in the future. But as of now, nothing is planned, which feels really good.

I’ll be issuing full refunds over the next week. Should you not receive yours or have any other problems, contact me at

And if by any chance, you want to buy the Scottish Terrier and Dog News, we can talk about that too.

It’s been a pleasure bringing you the Scottie News and getting to know you all, the best part of the job really.

Here’s to you and your Scotties.

  3. Ann, since I lost my Scottie, Spencer, I have gotten my “Scottie” high from the Scottie News. You have given me many smiles, joys and tears for others. I have no doubt you will successful in whatever you do. Thanks so much for what you gave all of us……..

  4. I’m more than happy with arrangements as they used to be, you NOT under pressure to produce and just being able to give us the occasional posts. Of course people can still offer donations to keep this wonderful site going and help towards web costs.

  7. Hey there!!!

    We’ve enjoyed yer website for a very long time now. Our scotties, Bucca, Brodie and now Scotty MacBones have been and are a great source of joy for us. And so has your wonderful web publication. Please don’t sweat the rebate. The happiness we’ve received from your site over the years is more than compensation for the fee.

    This is very sad news, indeed. Please keep my donation…the years of enjoyment have been well worth the $ spent. I wish that I knew more about web publishing…

  9. I have thoroughly enjoyed the STN. I learned so much about the breed from you and your readers. I wish you well Ann. Thank you for caring about the breed.

  10. Ann,
    All the Scotties here in Dallas; Hermione, Phoebe, Connnor, Angela, Wyatt, Pink, Fiona and of course Uncle Sherman (the Airedale) will miss the Scottie News. We hope to see you soon and please keep our subscription for any further endeavors. We wish you and your lovely Scottie all the best.
