Sweet William’s Gift

I have a great idea! Keep reading....

That Sweet William The Scot. He’s some kind of guy. Self-less and kind. And just, well, sweet. When people were mean to him, he just mooooved along little doggie. And when he found out that March is Scottish Terrier Month and that my birthday is next week, he made a DONATION IN MY NAME as a gift to a Scottie Rescue Group in Tennessee.

What could be sweeter than that?

So, We got to thinking around Our house.

“Peep,” I said. “Don’t you think that was a cool thing Sweet William did? For my birthday?”

“Yes it was little man,” She said. “A very, very cool thing to do. Hey, why don’t we make a donation, too, to celebrate Scottish Terrier Month? You can make one to the Scottie Rescue group in Tennessee, or to the Scottish Terrier Club of America’s Health Trust, or to any group you choose. Remember, We included the SCTA Health Trust in our estate planning.”

“You did? I have no idea what you’re talking about my peep, but if you say so.”

“Well, We created an estate plan to take care of you if something happens to Us. So you’ll be taken care of and Scotties all around the world can benefit from health research about the breed, whether they’re purebred or not, it’ll help everybody.”

“So, where’s this estate and why aren’t We planning to go over there and run around, and chase squirrels and stuff?”

“It’s not that kind of estate my dear Stu-meister. We don’t have one of those. Sorry. You’ll have to make do with what We have. And remember, you have it pretty good. All the green beans you can eat, a BIG bed to sleep in, a great Dogtor, a backyard that’s your kingdom and nobody else’s. And more love than you know what to do with. Some dogs don’t live the lush life that you do.”


“Back to this idea that Sweet William started. Any thoughts?”

“Yes!! ArrrrOoooooo I dooooo have an idea. Let’s make a donation of one green paper for every comment left on The Scottie Chronicles on my birthday? Next Thursday, March 15, from the time of that date’s blog post until midnight Eastern Standard Time here in the Good ‘ole USofA? How’s that?”

“It’s a grand idea my beautiful boy. Let’s do it.”

K. Done.

So there you have it. Put next Thursday on your calendar, come back, leave a comment and We’ll make a big ‘ole donation to uh….I know…. We’ll divide it to our local SPCA and the SCTA Health Trust. And while you’re at it, why not make your own donation to the animal cause of your choice?

There’s no better time than the present. And I do mean present. I love presents!!!! YIPPEE!

WAIT!!!! I have an even BETTER IDEA.  Let’s do two things with one comment, OK? Leave a comment AND vote on your donation of choice. Yeah, that’s it. YOU pick where We should donate.

    Oh Stuart, I am so excited about your birthday and March being Snotty Scottie Month! March is just a perfect time for us Scotties! I will certainly be thinking about you on your birthday….guess what?? Can you guess??? Well, it’s my birthday this month as well. Mine is on March 21st. I really think that we Scotties are the VERY best thing running around on four paws. Don’t you?
    I know my little brother, a big silly Pointer dog, might think differently, but even though he is bigger than me, I still rule!!

    You will hear from me on your BIG day.

    Barking at you….

  7. Kyla says:

    Since I’m a rescue-that’s how i vote. He throws some money at a local no kill shelter that handles all animals. That is unless I eat the cash first. I really have to stop that because it is hurting others.

  8. Douglas says:

    This is such a grrreat idea! We’ll definitely be visiting you next Thursday and I’m diggin in my piggie bank right now to make my own donation! You and Sweet William sure are generous pups!


  9. Sandy Bruning says:

    Hey Stuart – what a wonderful idea — be glad to ‘comment’ on the 15th – and we will donate $50.00 to the Scottish Terrier Health Trust to help you along ..All for the good of the Scotties!!
    Always – Lady, Cherry, Tobias and Shadow…..
