Seasons Greetings!

Wishing you and yours all the best for the holidays.

Abby loves to sleep under the tree as soon as the tree is up and tree skirt is down. She does not quite realize that the gifts would go under the tree and that she is blocking the delivery.  But there she sleeps, dreaming of all the toys Santa will bring. Hope your pups get their wishes met this holiday season!

Waiting for Santa…

Here is a cute Scottie filled Christmas video.

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you Scottish Terrier lovers

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.

All I want for Christmas….Scottie Waiting for Santa

Abby has been waiting for Santa to arrive since I put up our tree. She even waits underneath the tree with her favourite ball.

I wonder what she asked for this year….

  • Another ball to go with the other two dozen rolling around the house?
  • A wagon in which she can be rolled to the park while she gives a royal wave to her dog park friends?
  • A clicker to train me when to give treats?
  • A new brother or sister to share her toys with?

I am sure Santa will bring her lots of goodies (except the brother or sister).

Drop us a comment and tell us what your Scottie will be up to over the holidays.

I won’t let Abby read your comments in case she gets some ideas.

Drama time at the Scottie News

Ho Ho Ho. Is there nothing Sue’s creative husband can’t do?

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.

Cheers everyone, here’s to Scottie nostalgia!

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?

Dang! The Scottie dog Xmas sweater is gone from eBay

"Vintage Ugly Scottie Dog Christmas Party Sweater"

The sweater may have sold but you can still see it in the Google cache where it’s described as a “Vintage Ugly Scottie Dog Christmas Party Sweater.”

Hmm, don’t they mean “Vintage Scottie Dog Ugly Christmas Party Sweater?”

The Scottie News would also like to add that as Scottish Terrier Christmas sweaters go, this one’s actually pretty good.
