The true story of the Scottish Terrier and Dog News media empire.

Attention Scottie News email subscribers

For some reason, the Scottish Terrier News daily email for Tuesday appears not to have gone out, which means readers may have missed the story about the love child of Toto and the Tin Man, something no one would want not to see.

BTW, you can always sign up to receive Scottie News by email by using the subscribe box on the right.

Does anyone in the Toronto area want a cat?

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 if you are interested in these very nice cats.

Scottie News will be back soon

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.
