The First Monday of 2015

Oh me. It’s a new year. And that means a new start. Fresh beginnings. And new adventures.

First, let me say thank you. For following me along on my journey through life. It’s rough sometimes. So many Scotties and anipals and friends who are now gone from this Earth. But they’re running free and We’re thinking of all of them. Each and every one.

Kyla, my love, We’ll miss you always. But I felt a little kick in my kaboodle over the howlidays – seems you don’t take kindly to my moping around and being sad. And you let me know it.

So, I’ll stop. Just for you.

And, hey, thank you all for your howliday cards and thoughts. I tried my best to send out my own best wishes, but, as usual I got sidetracked. And I’m afraid I missed some folks. I’m so sorry. I’ll try to do better this year. In fact, I made some New Year’s resolutions. Or, as I like to call them: New Year’s Res-o-Rooo-tions. To try to do better. At lots of things.

Here’s my best New Year’s Res-o-ROOOO-tion face:

DSCN3887Doesn’t that look like I’m trying to do better? Yes. It. Does. What a face. Thank you very much.

I was at the beach in that photo. Having a big time. Like this:

And I was making my New Year’s Res-o-ROOOO-tions. Here I am thinking:

I like to think while I walk. I think I got a little bit too close to the edge for the peeps. It was cold that day and I think They didn’t want to come in after me if I fell. (Because you KNOW we Scots don’t swim well. Generally. Some do, but not me.) I like to keep the peeps on Their toes. If I don’t do it, nobody will. It’s my job.

So, tomorrow I’ll share my New Year’s Res-o-Rooo-tions. Before I forget.

OH…..and the answer to Saturday’s Where In The World riddle is…..Williamsburg, Virginia. Woooot!

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 11 years old in March 2017. 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!

    I thought for a second you were going to jump in. “Don’t do it, Stu” I squawked. You must have heard me.

    That was a very impressive run on the beach, Stuart! It’s hard to run in sand! But please be more careful when you are on a dock – don’t walk so closes to the edge if you aren’t wearing a life preserver!
