Watercolor Wednesday – Yikes!


Yikes! However will I keep this gorgeous neat and tidy look without my Godmother Carol? Who does so much more for me than keep me beautiful on the outside?

I’m still in shock. The peep called around earlier today, whilst I was sleeping under the desk, and, well, you can see why We’re in a pickle:

“Hello, I noticed on your website that you specialize in grooming champion terriers. Do you handle Scotties?”


Hoping to engage in a delightful banter about my fabulous breed, she said, “Tell me about that. Scotties can be quite the finicky puppy!”

“Well, if they bite, we put them in a muzzle.”

“Uh…thank you.” CLICK.

So, the peep said to me, “Stuart, don’t you worry my love. We’ll figure this out.”

And just like the soup nazi on Seinfeld, She quickly added, “No muzzle for you!”

To which I replied, “No bitey for me, unless they bite first!”

‘Nuf said.

We’re on the hunt. Our good friends over at Rocky Creek Scotties put out the APB on Facebook hoping to find a local referral or two.

Actually, truth be told, Godmother has been on the hunt since she decided to move. I’m thinking she’ll come through for Us.

She wouldn’t leave me in the lurch. No. She. Wouldn’t.

Now if she would just stay here. We walk to her house in the cooler weather. What could be better than that??? I’d better get used to not seeing her anymore. Sigh.


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!

    Stuart, be patient. Give it some time, there is another groomer out there for you who is going to be just wonderful! We just know it!

    Think positive!

    Finding a great or even good groomer of Scots is near to impossible here in Nati City, No one stripes fur ~ they want to make us look like poodles. Lee has taken to doing my furs. Can you tell I am getting the pan on the head cut special. But Lee says it is better than $60 for a poodle cut.
    You just might have to look like the rest of us Stuart.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

    Yea Stuart, like Lee and Sweet William, my ma does my furs at home. There are no good folks like Godmother Carol where we live. Ma clips me, since she never could find someone who could strip me, or teach her how. I look just OK after my hair cuts, but at least Ma doesn’t give me a schnauzer clip, like one local groomer did when I was younger. I’m sure your beloved Godmother will find someone to help you before she moves. Still…. wish she wasn’t going ta go ta Michigan. Hang in there Stuart!!

    Time for your mom to learn how to groom you Stu. You wouldn’t bite your mom.

  7. Kismet says:

    Nobody clips my feathers-nobody.

  8. ok gonna try this again, WHERE in Michigan is she moving? I live in Michigan

  9. nordhuesn says:

    you don’t need a haircut to be gorgeous……..it’s what is inside that counts. Godmother Carol will always be in your spirit. But we all agree this just plain stinks!

  10. OMD, just be glads Ma’s not grooming you!!! I NEVER knows what I’m gonna look like!!! Sometimes she leaves my leggies all long and furry cause I gets antsy after abouts 45 min. and she says she’ll finish later…does she..no! I walk around lookin’ like some 80’s reject!!
    and, we won;t even talk abouts the ear mangling of 2014….
    I hopes you find someone as FABulous as your Fairy Godmother! (and betters than my Ma!!!)
    And, that they don’t muzzle you! What’s with that anyhu?! I’m sure you just give them a love nip like I give my Ma when she tries to trim my hinnie! (hey, there are sensitive thingies back there, ya know?)
    Paws crossed for you Stuart!
    Ruby ♥

  11. Finding a good terrierist groomer are tuff. My momma grooms me herself.

  12. Wow Stuart, what an unfortunate situation. If you are my friend on Facebook, or Mamas, you would see many pics of my Groomer, to whom, much like you and your Aunt Carol, I am totally devoted. Maybe if your Peep sees some Scotties and likes thir groom, she cooled ask who grooms them? Or better still. Your Aunt Carol will find a colleague whose work she approves of? You know, , the peer to peer Dealio. I feel pretty confident that all will be well, cause you have that kind of Peep and Aunt. Your Pal, Skyler

  13. Cherry & Shadow says:

    oKAY sTUART!! Get your act together – you know the Godmother will not leave you in the lurch!
    Be brave – look well – and always be a Scotty!! — Our best to you – Humphrey, Shadow & Cherry

    Snorts! It is very hard to find the ‘perfect’ groomer my friend. Usually, Houdini goes up to Nana’s for Spa Day every other month and Nana has a lady that comes out and does the pooches. Mom has found a place that she wants to bring the little guy to test the waters. It should be interesting. Cause if it works, that means I have to go – snorts. Happy hunting and I agree 100% – no muzzles for ANY of us. XOXO – Bacon

  15. nordhuesn says:

    muzzle, smuzzle – you have one great Mom Peep!

  16. I think you should just visit Godmother Carol whenever you need a trim! Michigan can’t be THAT far, right?

  17. Laura Marec says:

    Stu, we’re sorry about your predicament! It is very hard to find a good Scottie groomer! Good luck! Wish we could help you, but we live way out West in California, and the tuff part is Scotties aren’t as popular out West, we don’t think, because we don’t see many of them–very few, in fact. Dees Westerners are koo-koo! Don’t dey know how GR-r-r-r-eat Scotties are?
    Wishing you da best,
    Riley-Puppy and Tessie-Girl

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
