I know the Scottie News hasn’t been coming your way as frequently as it did in the old days, but Sandra tells me she’s going to be writing more in the new year, which is great news.
I love her posts and insights into being a fur parent to Scottish Terriers.
So for all of you who’ve asked about what’s happened to your Scottish Terrier and Dog News newsletters, I hope that brings you some holiday cheer.
I would also like to apologize for any unanswered emails. I do mean to respond, but it’s been a crazy year. Please know that even if you don’t hear back, your notes to the Scottie News are always greatly appreciated.
Wishing you and your Scotties all the best for the holidays and 2015.
Being the charmer he is, Bas has a few girlfriends around the block, including a little lady called Miss Muffles, to whom he once showed his affection by taking a wee across her hind legs. Together they make a handsome pair, until you realise that Basil perhaps has fewer brain cells.
December 2016 Update: Everyone, chill. Add some extra rum to your eggnog. Get a massage. Pet your dogs.
Back in 2013, a mixup occurred. Somehow Sue and her husband mysteriously got credit for Lorna’s husband’s Dave’s creation. And no, just in case any of you suspicious types decide to go there, Sue is not Lorna’s sister wife.
Shit happens. And how and why this happened will likely remain a mystery as it was thre long years ago, and no one noticed it until now.
The good news is that — despite the mixup — Dave might be willing to provide the pattern. Seems like Lorna and Dave have the Xmas spirit that some of the shoot-first commenters seem to be missing.
Thanks, Lorna. And apologies for whatever it was that caused credit not to be given where credit was due. My bad.
Is it just me or is it hard to imagine the Mad Men-esque couple pictured in this 1964 ad actually taking their Scottie and Westie dogs for a walk? They likely have a devoted housekeeper and gardener, a married couple, who hang with the dogs and take care of their daily needs.
Oh dear, now it looks like the couple were drinking and driving in a previous decade. How else to explain the open top in the middle of winter? Or perhaps it’s not even the same couple. While the woman could have updated her hairstyle, the car seems a bit too old fashioned for the fifties. What do you all think?
And finally, here’s actress Dorothy Lamour with a Scottie puppy. Lamour’s one of those actresses I think I should know more about, but then I look at her movie history and realize there’s a reason why I’ve never seen any of her films and just know her name. Basically, she had way better taste in dogs than movie scripts.
I’ve put in requests for other people tattooed with Scotties to come forth and show them to the Scottish Terrier and Dog News, and discuss the ouch factor for those who, unlike me, might be interested in some permanent body art.
