Five Years Ago Today

Five years ago today The Scottie Chronicles was born. Yes. Born. That’s they way I look at it anyway.

Here’s the very first post. Just in case you forgot, or weren’t around five years ago. To refresh the ‘ole memory.

Let’s take a look at my glorious self over the last five years, shall we? Why, yes, Stuart, why not?

About The Scottie Chronicles

The Scottie Chronicles began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. He passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty canine cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 10 years old in March 2016. 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!
