Ponder This…

Stuart? Are you out there?


Of course, Winston. I’m always here.


Sorry it’s been a while since we talked.

No need to apologize my young friend. I’ve got all the time in the world for you and I don’t mind waiting.

Well, I have a question.

I know you do. What’s on your mind? By the way, you’re doing pretty well all by yourself these days.

Really? That makes me happy.

Yep, you’re a true little Scottie boy with a BIG brain and a BIG personality.

Well, maybe you can answer this. Maybe my brain isn’t all that big.

Don’t worry, you’re not going to get the coronavirus-19.

Oh, I wasn’t worried about that. But that has something to do with it. When you were taken away from the peeps. You know, when that happened, they started raising money for some research to help get rid of that hemangiosarcoma that you had.


And they did a good job I think. But it’s been a while since they raised any money for the research and I was wondering, do you think it’s OK to do that again? The dad peep has created a new T-Shirt design to sell. I’m wondering if it’s a bad time to ask people for money when they don’ have jobs or when they’re sick and scared. Well, really, I don’t know what I mean. It’s all so confusing.

You’re very wise little Winston.


Really. I and the peeps and you will always be grateful for the generosity of people who want to see an end to hemangiosarcoma. Why don’t we ask your blog friends?

Why didn’t I think of that?

Countdown ’til T-Shirts


Friends. You know how I and my kind love to ponder. I could sit for hours and ponder the world. Stuart, my guardian angel, loved to ponder too.

That reminds me.

It’s time for another T-Shirt fundraising campaign to support hemangiosarcoma research.

I owe him that much. He’s my guiding light.

So consider this a pre-announcement. It’s coming…..your chance to help get rid of nasty hemangiosarcoma.

Scottie Saturday

Hello friends, furry and otherwise.

I ask you, doesn’t this look say “give me a treat please”?

Wishful Wednesday

Oh joy! My wish came true!

I had a wish today that all would be well when I went to the Dogtor and it wouldn’t be hell. And what to my wondering ears should I hear, but that I’m perfect from ear to ear.

See? I’m not fat! So give me a treat please.

The scales don’t lie. Unless they do. But The Peepstress can rest easy that I’m thin through and through.

Well, maybe not exactly thin. But sort of. Kind of.

22.6 lbs sounds good to me. How about you?

Winston, dont get cocky little man.

Why, whatever do you mean Peepstress?

You’re still at the top of the breed standard.

Well, I’m just built this way. And I need a haircut.

You’re right about that. We’ll take care of that this weekend.

Oh boy. A more beautiful me you’ll never see.
