Holiday Lights and Stuff

Hurry Up! Let's Go!

Here We are at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s Gardenfest of Lights. It’s the second time I’ve been. Great fun. It’s when they put lights all over the place outside. But you have to go through the Visitor’s Center to get there.

Pretty garlands, huh?

I met all kinds of people and made fans. (People really like Scotties let me tell you.)

Here's a good Mom showing how to approach me.

So I met this little girl and her Mom. (You know, I didn’t get their permission to use this photo and I usually don’t show faces here at The Scottie Chronicles, so I asked Her to edit her pretty face. Sorry, but I feel better doing that.) I liked this little girl. I usually don’t like small two-legged things, but she was cool.

Hey…see that table in the background? That’s where I got my red bandanna that I mentioned earlier this week. I swanneeeeee…. I went nuts at this table. People from Petco were there and this lady REMEMBERED seeing me way before Christmas. Can you believe that? We were only in the store for a short time and she remembered me! Anyway, they gave away little thingeys filled with stuff and that’s where I got my bandanna. AND there was a travel water bowl in it. We’re excited to have that. Very handy. Thank you Petco. AND they were giving away food. You know me and food.

I kind of embarrassed my peeps. It was like I had never had a treat before. I don’t know what came over me. I guess I just love to visit places where they let us canine citizens enjoy things like people. It makes me crazy.

I met these people, too.

These Shelties were there again this year, too.

There were all kinds of lights.

Lights that looked like flowers.

Men made of glass standing on balls in water.

Woooo it was fun. They had glass sculptures made by this man named Frabel. Very, very neat.

A good time was had by all.

And that’s my bandanna story.

What You Learned Today:

  • It’s so nice when businesses let dogs enjoy things with their peeps.
  • I can’t say this enough.
  • Thank you Petco.
  • Thank you Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. (They have all kinds of Fido Nights. You should check it out if ever you’re in my town. Come to think of it, stop on by when you’re here. We’d love to see you.)

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 12 years old in March 2018. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    I love Christmas and all the lights and trees. It reminds me of eight years ago when They brought me home on the 23rd and everything was already set up. He’s started to take it down (boo hiss) and will do the roof today. I’d love to go to the roof with Him but He won’t let me. After all, it isn’t as dangerous as you think-it is a flat roof house. There’s an outside spiral staircase to get up there. They have a table and chairs up there to sit at cocktail hour and watch the magnificent desert sunsets. That’s another bone of contention-They won’t let me go up to the roof with Them then-or even have a cocktail of my own.

    Hey Stuart,
    MyPerson volunteered the first Fido night of the GardenFest of Lights this year (7:00pm-10:00pm). She was in the Conservatory and saw all kinds of dogs! No Scotties though. Which night did you go? I love children but I tend to scare them. I DON’T like other dogs so MyPerson doesn’t put me in situations where I can ‘act up’. You have sooo much fun! – Duncan

    Stuart…you are so lucky having so many travels to make with your peeps. We try to travel, but sometimes people don’t want dogs around. I will never understand that. sometimes we just go visit the groomers to get out. I really love the short 2 legged people, since I have 4 of my own I know how much fun they can be, especially the 2 that have dogs, cats and horses. they are the greatest.

    happy tails…Georgie

    That looks like a wonderful evening out! AND you got to go…how fantastic is that.

    We know how much people like scotties, we always get stopped when we go walking. (We usually ignore them.)

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    I get alot of attention here too, mostly with the remark, “I can’t remember the last time I saw a Scottie”, I don’t ignore them though, that is about the only Scottie trait I don’t have. About your post on checkups, I just had my annual today, still not to keen on the jab in the bum though…

    • Piper MacT says:

      DOH!!! It was a post on another blog about annual trips to the vet…still not to keen on getting a pointy thing stuck in my behind though…

  6. Piper MacT says:

    err that should read too, not to. Can’t believe my typist (who is best described as a spelling nazi) missed that typo twice…

    • Not to worry! Typos don’t count on comments do they??? Naw. Let’s just say that they don’t. There. Glad you got your check up! DON’T miss those.

      Happy New Year to you. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a note….

      Roodles, Stuart

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
