Michigan – 1, Virginia – 0

Even though I might get toted around like a football, that’s not what I’m talking about here. And I don’t even know if Michigan and Virginia are in the same athletic conference. That’s not my concern. My concern is so much more important than sports … wait, I’m getting choked up about it… can’t talk ….

It’s too hard to get outta bed. The news is just so terrible.

…or pug friends in kilts can cheer me up.


Godmother Carol is moving to Michigan.

There. I said it.

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. oh no! sorry! – Ainsley

    AAAAK! You’re kidding, yes? Oh no, so sorry. That will be a long trip to get your hair trimmed. Will she be on one of the big lakes or a smaller one? Will she be a Spartan or a Wolverine? She is probably hurting as much as you as we know you are her favorite. Now, chin up and be a stoic Scot.

  3. Kismet says:

    Stu, that was a nightmare and not the real world. How do I know that it’s a bad dream? It’s an impossible football score (except in Canada). I just googled and both Virginia and Michigan are still not in Canada.

  5. oh that’s not good…. is there a way you can visit her? maybe via telepost tunnel of scottie-taxi?

  6. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh nooooooooooo!!! What part? I live in Michigan!

  7. Lee says:

    That is just one low down blow, a real hit to the gut. It has to really hurt. Sorry Stuart.
    Thanks for being a friend

    This news is very upsetting. Gosh, ma didn’t even get the chance for her to fix my furs-the right way! I guess she’s going cuz she wants ta? If not, maybe we can talk her out of it?! 😦 We know how much you and your peeps love her. Does she know how cold Michigan gets in the winter?? Please feel better, Stuart. We feel sad when yer unhappy.

  9. sue ellen says:

    sigh… we just ‘hate’ it when the people we love have to move away…or we move away form them. Sorry dude….. really….and for your peeps too…. =*(

  10. corkscot says:

    Tell her to watch Dr. Pol on natGeo and see the horrible winters that they have in Michigan. She might as well move to Alaska.

  11. Donna says:

    That is so sad!! Who will cut your hair now? Sending you a big hug.

  12. fergusnguinness says:

    Oh NO this is not good. We feel your pain!

  13. Tobias,Cherry, Shadow says:

    We are with you Stuart – we also will miss Godmother Carol absolutely the worst!! No one to check to see if we have boo-boos prior to the vets, no one to give extra kisses, no one to hold our paws when we need them. But she is determined – and we wish her the best as we want her to have a great life wherever – right?? — Humphrey, Shadow & Cherry

  14. theguster says:

    Oh, Stuart, we’re so sorry to hear this. But look, I’m sure she can recommend someone in your area to groom you…of course it won’t be as good as she does it, but you will still be made handsome and you will make friends with the new groomer. Also, between the visits you and the Peeps will take, of course, to Michigan to visit your Godmother, you can do the skype thing on the computer and ‘see’ one and other and talk. You can send cards to her that say you are thinking of her, and she will send you treats. You will make the best of the situation while keeping in touch with one and other and you have lots of happy memories to reflect on. We will say prayers for all of you on this new adventure.

  17. Maybe after a winter there she’ll move back.

  18. PigLove says:

    NNNNOOOO!!! This can’t be happening to you my friend. No way! What a loss. I’m so sorry – I really am. You want to share my Nana? XOXO – Bacon
