More Thoughtful Scotties – Duffy

Yep. Scotties do love to stare out of windows and through open doors. Just like yesterday’s Watercolor Wednesday. It’s a pensive thoughtfulness. What are they thinking? Wish I knew.

Duffy sent us this photo of himself staring through a window. What’s he thinking? He’s certainly got a nice perch from which to wonder about the world. And what wonderful peeps he has. To push that ottoman over to the window so he can see. And rule the roost. Way to go peep!

Hey, send me YOUR thoughtful photo. Send it to:

Watercolor Wednesday – Thoughtful

What day is it? Wednesday! Time for some NEW StuART.

Scotties are such pensive and thoughtful friends. Looking out of a window seems to be a favorite pastime.

MacGregor – Scottie in a Camo Jacket

Friends, this is going to take a little bit of work, but you must see this video.

Click on it, and you’ll go to the Facebook page of the 451st Expeditionary Sustainment Command in Witchita, Kansas.

Once there, scroll down until you see videos (under the photos) on the right side of the page.

CLICK ON THE VIDEO OF MACGREGOR getting his well-deserved promotion as a member of the U.S. armed forces. Yes.

Yes, friends, this’ll take a bit of work, and it’s a bit long, but once you see A SCOTTIE IN A CAMO JACKET sitting on a table with his ears back, you’ll get it. And you’ll see why Scotties lovers are, well, Scottie lovers.

I need MacGregor to pay me a visit. Do you?

Let’s not forget Stuart in his own little jacket.

third try

Stuart would have been a great service dog. Yes. He. Would.

Thankful Thursday

No, it’s not Thanksgiving, though “Thankful Thursday” is usually the title of that post in November.

But it could just as easily be Thanksgiving here at the Dad Peep’s and my house today.

Because of your sharing, caring and giving, a donation to Stuart’s Fund in the amount of $1,007 will soon be on its way to Blacksburg, Virginia, to help Dr. Nick Dervisis and his brilliant staff at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.

Let’s just wrap our little heads around that for a moment:


Never in a million years did I think I’d ever create a special fund to tackle hemangiosarcoma. I’d never heard of it.

Never in a million years did I ever think that Stuart would pass so suddenly at such a young age after having a zillion tests only months before during his annual dogtor exam. Never.

Never in a million years would I see myself as a canine cancer fundraiser, but here I am.

There’s one thing I do know: in a million years, I know I can count on you.

For that, the Dad Peep and I are truly Thankful. On this special Thursday.

Thank you. If I had two back feet, I’d frog dog right about now.



Dirt and all.

Yes. It’s Watercolor Wednesday, but before we get to that, let’s talk about pumpkins.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

When Cinderella was at the ball with the handsome prince, the clock began to strike 12 – midnight. And you know what happened next: the horse-drawn carriage turned back into a pumpkin. And she dropped her glass slipper.

YIKES! We don’t want that to happen to YOU, so remember to order your T-shirt or hoodie today BEFORE 11:59 PM EST (that’s tonight where I live).

It may not mean you get to keep your glass slippers, but it sure means that we’ll be closer to learning  more about hemangiosarcoma. And THAT, is priceless. (So are you, by the way; thank you for your support.) By the way, HSA is most common in Golden Retrievers (1 -5 will get it), and other large breeds such as Portuguese Water Dogs, Boxers and German Shepherds.

We’re just a few dollars away from raising $1,000 for HSA research! ARRRROOOOOrrrroooOOOOOO!

OK. Time for some StuART. Old StuART, but good ones. A double dose of puppy-ness since I still feel like a puppy from my flu shot yesterday. Those poor pooches. If puppies feel like my arm does today after getting their shots, my heart goes out to them all.
