I’ve Had Enough


troubleI’ve had enough trouble, trauma and tragedy.

As you know, I’ve brooded enough about it. So, I’m done. And all I can do is be kind to my fellow peeps and anipals. Be the best little doggie I can be. I can’t change the world (unless I’m elected King and some of my pals think I’d be good at that), but I can be responsible for myself can’t I?

Enough already. Too much trouble, trauma and tragedy in the world. As my pal, Aunt Sharon, over at Gentle Stitches, told me over the weekend in her kind comment:

We must not let the dark forces rob us of our happiness or way of life. We have all worked hard to get where we are and where we are is good. Lift up your head and give us a big Arooo

Here goes:

It may not be the biggest ArrOOOO I’ve got, but it’ll do. Thank you, Aunt Sharon, for helping me snap out of it. Yes. Like in Moonstruck. You slapped me.

What You Learned Today:

  • Times are rough out there in the big world.
  • I’ve got enough trouble of my own to worry about. Eating. Napping. Playing. Walking. Taking care of my peeps. Staying out of harm’s way.
  • I can’t take on the world, but I can move on and respect life in all forms.
  • Except when I need to, you know, be a terrier and take care of business.
  • Be very afraid squirrels. Very. AFRAID.
  • Huuummm…..perhaps I should be kinder to squirrels???


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!

    You can’t worry about things you can’t change or control-that’s nuts. Speaking about nuts, it’s time for some!

  5. Hang in there, little Scottie!!! A walk on the beach is a great way to regain some peace of mind!

  6. sounds like excellent advice – aaaaaarrrrroooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Sophie and Shelby AROOOed back at you. Sidney was busy avoiding the girls and had no comment.

  8. I thought that was a pretty darn good AROO.

    Stu..Aunty Sharon is spot on…you sing it out my friend..more love than hat has been shown these last days…the world is still a place foe Aroooooo’s and tail wagging and beach strolls…sending hugs from all of us and pathetic attempts at Aroooooo’s back your way 🙂 loves Fozziemum xx

    *for not foe…urghhh

  12. Things can be tuff, but a lil terrier cuteness in da world always makes it a better place.

  13. nordhuesn says:

    As usual, you are soooooooooo right! Triple ‘Rooooos from us. Elsa does the best Rooo and she’s not even a Scottie. (Puts Andy and me to shame).

  14. Christina Jacque and Pippen says:

    Oh Stuart, you are so right. It’s hard to constantly hear bad and sad news. If everyone just took it upon themselves to be kind think of how much better things would be! I guess all we can do is take care of ourselves.

    Love to see you and hear you!

  15. sue ellen says:

    Thank You Aunt Sharon….and Stuart for sharing ♥♥

  16. theguster says:

    My peep said everybody should sing a few verses of What The World Needs Now Is Love Sweet Love!

    …it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
    What the world needs now is love sweet love,
    No not just for some but for everyone.

    Lord, we don’t need another mountain,
    There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb
    There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
    Enough to last till the end of time

    (That’s all I know, but it makes me feel better to sing just that! We all need love!)
