Just for a moment…let’s forget about my grooming troubles and the loss of my very best Godmother in the world….let’s forget about my belly boo-boo and my snaggletooth. …let’s put aside the our differences with the mailman.
Yes, my friends and my furiends, let’s forget about everything else except today.
For today marks my 9th Blogoversary.
NO WAIT…. stop the presses. This just in: Leave it to my pal Kismet, actually, I think it must have been Angel Kyla who spotted it first…I have only been blogging for SIX YEARS. Not nine. I started in 2009 and, um, well, please feel sorry for the peep. For one thing, She can’t add, subtract, multiply or divide. Secondly, She’s had a bad week. Third, She’s looking for a new groomer for me, as you know, and that can take a lot out of a peep. Lastly, She saw “2009” and wrote “9th” Blogoversary instead of “6th”. Even though I dictated it correctly.
One more thing – and I found this little error myself – my blogoversary is TOMORROW – ’cause the WordPress folks are in AUSTRALIA and they’re a DAY AHEAD of me and they sent me a nice little note earlier. Geez. I should just go back to sleep.
So, for those of you just tuning in, pay no attention. For those of you who think I’m a liar because you read this post earlier today, well, You. Would. Be. Wrong. I’m no liar. Confused sometimes, yes; a liar, never. A Scottie never lies.
Back to today. Or tomorrow. Or whenever. Let’s celebrate anyway, shall we?
You knew me when I was a just a pup.
From this puppy:
To this manly man:
And all of me in between:
As Sweet William the Scot says, “Thank you for being my friends.”
I couldn’t do it without you.
Hey Stu, you’ve really stuck with it. Happy Blogiversary!! Our Mom says if you can’t find a groomer, come up on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a couple of nights and drop by Rocky Creek Farm. She’d be honored to groom you!!

Sweet William The Scot
You are indeed my pal, SWTS. How beautiful.
Ya are a poet too, Sweet William! Kinda like the Shakespeare William, huh?
Congratulations Stuart. I have only found you for about 3 years but I have enjoyed following your life. A big AARRROOOOOOOOOO to you.
Bentley, my buddy, 3 years is a long time pal. Thank you!
Your archives only go back to August 2009. That makes it six years. You mean there are three years of Stu that we missed? We have to hide it from Kyla that there were three years that she never got to see.
Ya, we wanna see “the missing years” too!!
So do I. Grrrr…… I was just checking to, uh, see who was paying attention. Uh…no wait…that won’t work. Um, how about I was wrong? No wait…you KNOW that won’t work, ’cause I’m never wrong. Blame it on the peeps…… Grrrrrr…..Lemme fix that.
Stuart I noticed that but I just checked it off to Dyslexia. I was just happy to be going along in your celebrating.
Sweet William The Scot
Stuart must have been doing a headstand and wrote six but when viewed normally it was a nine.
We didn’t say you weren’t telling the truth. We just wanted to catch up on what we missed. Anywon kin mayk an eror.
Ya, we figured the word press thingy wouldn’t let ya store the 1st 3 years! BOL!! It’s all good, Stuart. Never thought you or the Peep would keep any thing from us on purpose!
Thank Dawgness. I got stuck in my headstand and the peep, well, She’s just a peep. But I think I’ll keep Her.
You guys are grrrrrrreat!
Happy Blogoversary, Stuart! We found you about 3 years ago and we thank our lucky stars that we did! You are a real treasure, and you’ve added so much fun to our day and have given us lots to think about! Silent Sunday, Where In The World and Watercolor Wednesday are such fun! Please thank the Peep, too. She’s doing a great job with The Scottie Chronicles!

Happy 6TH BLOGAVERSARY to you, Stu, and to your tireless PEEP! Though we only discovered you about 1 year ago, we have thoroughly enjoyed your adventures, sage advice, neighborhood patrol reports, Squirrel and Dilly observations and reviews, not to mention Ace Reporting of all the GOOD News in da World, tooths cleanings and belly boo-boos, Trifexis (UGH!) polls, and stories about your Peeps’ doings and how well dey take care of you! We have become so attached seeing you and all your friends daily on The Scottie Chronicles, that we went into withdrawals recently when you went to a Play-cay with Sniglet, and your Secretary/Peep went on Vacay too. We had to look up some of your old blogs to keep us happy ‘cuz we missed you! We’re so happy we found you! You’re one Special Scot! Thank you for all of da hard work it must be to manage your peep and put out such a splendid blog! We Love you and your blog! Thank you! Oh, yes, your pictures are just adorable!
