What Happened to My Tree?

What happened to my favorite tree? The one I sit under amongst the monkey grass?

It was right here a minute ago. No kidding. Here one minute, gone the next. Wha???

What's it doing over there? All cut up?

I swannee. My favorite tree is gone. I went over to play with Sniglet yesterday morning and when I came back, it was gone. Lots of sawing. A truck with a big thing off the back. Two guys from Illinois. And my dad peep with a teeny little chain saw in his hand. Then, POOF! Tree’s gone.

I’m gonna miss that thing.

What You Learned Today:

  • We had some kind of holly tree that was shaped up like a nice oversized toadstool in Our side yard.
  • I loved to sit under that thing and flush out the little critters who lived in the monkey grass. Chipmunks, bunnies…you know, those kinds of critters.
  • Sometimes, the only way She could find me was to look for my tail wagging above the monkey grass. Or look for my ears sticking up out of the grass.
  • It died for some reason. Lots of people came to look at it and try to save it, but it was gone.
  • Then, yesterday, He started cutting it down. Then, this pick-em-up truck drove by and two guys got out. They were here from Illinois looking for tree work because of Hurricane Irene. No kidding. They just showed up. And finished the job and even ground out the stump. Outta nowhere! How cool was that?
  • I miss my tree.
  • OH…. before I forget….I want to show you something:

  • Get a load of these elephant ears in my backyard kingdom!!!!! WHOA!!!! Those are some big leaves!!!!
  • Just in case you don’t know us Scotties, we like to walk under things. I really like walking under that big ‘ole leaf and have it rub on my back. I don’t know why, I just do.

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!

    We hope you got lots of firewood from that tree, Stuart! We like to walk under the duvet — the part that hangs off the end of the bed — and have it rub our backs. We especially like to do this when we’re wet!! BOL!!

    Hi there Stuart
    Had to laugh! There you are, snoopervising like we Scotties do over here. Nothing happens without a serious inspection and stuff being taken away – well that’s just wrong!

    Enjoy your elephant ears you dear little man.xxx

  3. Well the answer is simple – tell the peeps to guy a BIG old tree to replace it ! Or maybe plant a whole patch of those elephant ears for you to hide in.

    No hiding in the plants here-cactus has prickers. They’ve let a weed grow for years because Kenzie likes it. It’s called “Kenzie’s pissing bush” and that’s Their official scientific name for it. It doesn’t contain prickers which may be one reason Kenzie likes it. We don’t have fire hydrants within 10 miles.

    Oh Stuart ~ you have such a beautiful manicured yard! We went to the nursery yesterday and bought some ornamental grass called silver dragon. We are going to plant it among our day lillies to try and keep the deer from eating all the lilly flowers next year.
    But, you can’t stop a saw from eating your tree, since it was dying maybe it was a good thing to put it down.
    Sweet William The Scot

  6. You’ll have to find a new spot for some shade next summer, Stuart.

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

    Whoever stole that tree better bring it back or they will have you to answer too!!!! BY the way, I like to walk under things too…tables, her legs when she’s sitting, bushes, chairs…you name it!! Must be a terrier thing! OH and for a little while, they were cutting my hair like a scottie…not a westie. I can’t imagine being cut like a cocker spaniel…I will say though, I liked having that beard!!
