Watercolor Wednesday

firstxmas

It’s Wednesday! Time for some art! My very first Christmas was celebrated in Duck, North Carolina in 2005. It was my first foray into the world of sea and sand. As you know, it wouldn’t be my last trip to the enchanted Outer Banks at this special time of year.

Speaking of Christmas, I thought you might also like this little piece of art featuring nandina berries from my backyard kingdom. It reminds me of Christmas. Red berries and snow. Woot!

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!

    We won’t have another one of these special triple number dates for 32,161 days – on 1/1/2101. And the date 12/12/12 only happens once in a century! I think that makes it special right here right now.
    Thanks for being a friend

    YIKES!!!! Jessie suffered a stroke-a mini stroke or T.I.A. (Transient Ischemic Attack) as his Dogter called it. Didn’t know it could happen to dogs! It’s frightening to see a human go through it. Equally frightening to watch it happening to my little buddy!!

    He was walking and stumbling around as if drunk and collapsed on the floor with his eyes rolled back. Dad franticly called Dr. Hill’s office and was told to bring Jessie in right away. Dad drove while I was holding Jessie in my arms. They took him in back and examined him and told us they wanted to do some tests and keep him over night for observation. I could hardly sleep that night worrying about what might have happened to him.

    The next day they called for us to pick him up. I was very happy to see him and he sat up and gave me a big ARROOO! Dr. Hill told us about the mini stroke and that it could happen again. The good news is he will recover. He is scared of my camera (the bright flash probably reminds him of the exploding propane tanks behind his original home). Hates the smell of smoke. Won’t go potty outside unless we step well away from the house and stand next to him. He is likely afraid something will happen to one of us or our home. I tell you Stuart, I sat down and cried because he is still frightened. He climed onto my lap,whined a little bit and licked my tear stained face. I cried even more realizing that this loving little dog cares so much for ME!!! That resulted in the scottie head tilt and more loving licks!!
    I’ll try some time later to get pictures of him . Hides behind and underneath furniture and bushes outside if he sees the camera anywhere. Now Stuart, how do I get him a Thundershirt,do they really work?

    Big ARRROOOO from Jessie
    P. S. Thanks for telling his story and spreading the word about smoke alarms!!
    And Big Thank You to everyone for their loving concern about Jessie!
