Scotties…Tell Your Peeps About This

Isn’t this a cute picture of moi? A little itty bitty baby. Sleeping – my best Olympic sport – on a chair. Of all places. I swannee, I could sleep anywhere.

But, I awoke from my slumber early today to tell you something important. All you Scotties, listen up!

The folks over at Rocky Creek Scottie Adventures posted an interesting item. Go over there now and check it out.

There’s a survey at projectdog.org to help doctors learn things about us Scotties. The information will help canine genetic research. Heck, it may even help put an end to Scottie Cramp and stuff like that.

My peep took the survey for me yesterday and We’re going to give a DNA sample. To help other Scotties in the future. (Seems I qualified for the study because of my noise phobia and “other interesting behavior”. Wha????)

Check it out. It takes a village to raise healthy companion animals. We can all help each other. There are studies for other breeds as well.

What You Learned Today:

  • I love sharing things. Thanks, Rocky Creek Scotties, for sharing this with your friends, like moi.
  • There’s a survey about Scotties here. YOU MUST PARTICIPATE NOW – ’cause the survey is only active for a week. And I think half of that time is already gone…
  • So hop on over there and be a part of Scottie research.
  • ArroOOO Roooooo!

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a 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. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Done! How did they know some of those things about me already? How did they know that I like to sleep with my head on a pillow?? Preferably my human’s pillow. If they are trying to use it, that’s fine with me. I can just lay right on top of their head, neck….whatever. It’s soooo comfy!
    We will do the DNA sample too, becuase I bet I will get a biscut after I stand still while they take my sample, don’tcha think???

    This is Toby barking at you!

  3. Cute white bely. White marks the spot for bellyrubs…

  4. Kyla says:

    OK, I answered the questions, sent the photo and am getting a kit. I’m afraid they’ll find out some dark secret hidden in my past that I don’t even know about such as one of my ancestors was a squirrel. Would they publicize something like that? My reputation would be ruined and I wouldn’t be able to live with myself.

  5. Lee says:

    I got into the study. Don’t know if I can help, but I know that my father was used way to much in breeding from the AKC. So my genetic pool has to be out there. I am doing the DNA sample also.
    Thanks for bringing us this info. Stuart. You and Rocky Creek rock.

    I love all you Scotties! You know what? I think Scotties Peeps are the best! You all make me smile.

  9. We’re in there with you, Stuart. Our mom got online and gave those nice people all the skinny and the poop (well, in a manner of speaking, anyway). Arrooo-oooo-ooo from Jake and Albert

  10. Dougall says:

    Looks like you have to be from America to participate. Would have loved to have helped!

  11. Piper MacT says:

    I would have liked to help Stuart, but linky no worky, at least not to the survey.
    That’s a pretty comfy looking chair there, watch out that I don’t come over and claim it…

    We read about it. Sounds like a great survey, but again, we’re out-of-country.

    Good for you for helping.

  15. noodledog says:

    Stuart–I think the survey is over. Mom went to get my file(she can never remember the big words from the dogtors reports from when I was sick)) then did the link and she can’t find the survey, then again, she can’t remember big words…
