Yes, this is a bit of a strange post for the Scottie News, given that the animal in question is kind of a fraidy cat and can’t live with dogs, but I thought I’d give it a shot.
Here’s the situation. My mother and stepfather are both battling serious illness and need to find a home for their two cats, Bruno and Lexi. The cats are used to going outside, sociable as long as there are no dogs around, and nice looking with shiny short black fur although they are a bit on the pudgy side.
In an ideal world, they would be adopted together, but they can be separated if need be. While Bruno could go to a dog household, Lexi can’t. Both need access to the outdoors.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in these very nice cats.

There are a lot of other improvements I would like to make and can do myself but, for me, it’s just not worth it to do anything more until I get my Google rankings and search traffic back as this used to be a steady source of new readers and growth.
Thanks in advance to everyone able and willing to help finance the necessary improvements. And don’t hesitate to email me at email@example.com or post a comment if you have any questions or suggestions.

Rudog the Christmas Scottie by garlandcannon
The staff of the Scottish Terrier and Dog News wish you a very merry Christmas and long walks with your Scotties to work off all the big dinners.
If you’ve sent us a picture of your dog in the past few months and we haven’t been able to publish it yet, I apologize. I want to show off all your wonderful dogs, it’s just that we have had time and technical issues this year (about which I’ll write more later).
In the mean time, please know that you readers and your fabulous Scotties are a huge part of the Scottie News, and I always look forward to your comments, input and photos. I hope to get your photos up over the next few weeks.
Thank you and please keep reading.
All the very best for the holidays,
The Scottie News editorial team.
