Double Dose Thursday

Since I completely forgot that yesterday was Watercolor Wednesday and because I’ve been away for too long and forgot to post on Tuesday, today you’ll get a double dose of Scottie Chronicles goodness.

Here goes:


And, for part two of today’s double dose, here’s the latest Pawsitive News.

Just this morning my peeps told me about a little boy near our neighborhood who’s been asking folks to give him old, broken bicycles. Why? Because he likes to fix them and….WAIT FOR IT….


Now, I know this news is of the 2-legged variety, but I had to share it with you anyway. Because it made me smile. Doesn’t that just make you weep with wonder? Wonder at the fact that there are still good things that happen in this bad ‘ole world? Wait….it’s not a bad ‘ole world. We can’t let bad apples spoil the whole tree now can we? Shame on me.

Oh…and thanks to my Pawsitive News correspondents who’ve been submitting items for me to share. I’ll get back on the news cycle soon. Send your pawsitive news submissions to me at

Woooooot! Enjoy your Thursday you guys and stay safe out there.

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!

  1. that’s a pawsome boy if you ask me… it’s nice to fix the old bikes and to give them to kids who can’t buy a new bike. It’s great that this boy found a way to make this world a little bit warmer… I bet he will be a fabulous adult biped once, right?

    Mom says people are inherently good, but that makes for poor news copy. Keep up the great pawsative news. We love it. Elsa is crushing on yo u r picture (again). The tablet screen now has drool on it. For such a stoic German, she gets all dopey around you.

  4. Oh, Stu, what wonderful Positive News! Please ask your peeps to take you to see him so you can give him some licky kisses. Ask your peeps to take a pic of you together so we can see you both.
