A Talkie

My computer guru was over yesterday and today updating my system and doing all the things I don’t know how to do. Thank goodness for computer gurus, right? I thought, while he was here, I’ll ask him to update my phone and my laptop.

Look what I found on my phone that I’d forgotten I had! Turn up your sound!

How could I forget this sweet little movie?

That little voice. I miss him so.



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!

  11. that was a sweet arroooooo

  12. Such a giftlet ! The magic of video…sunshine on a cloudy day. Mama’s phone just blew up 4 years of photos…gone period. So guard this video clip with your life….everyone, backup your photos and videos, or you will end up like Mama, who was bereft.

    He was such a sweetie! We haven’t heard an Arooooo since Elsa left. She was the one who would get them all 3 going. Wish I would have recorded her. You know, Stuart will keep popping up here and there as he won’t want anything about him to go unnoticed, yes? Thanks for a Thursday thrill.

    Was that a chortle, a coo, like doves would make…a purr? Gosh, dat was so darn adorably cute! It just made our hearts melt with happiness to see our Stu moving and vocalizing! This is just precious! Did he used to make that little sound often? It sure sounded like it was a sound of love, comfort and contentment as he looked up at you! We played it again and again, and will continue to do it. He gave you such a loving and satisfied glance and wag o’ da tail as he gave his little chortle or whatever you’d call it. What would you call his little love sound? For a minute we thought that he was going to break into an Aroooo! Thank you so much! That totally made our day!
    Happy you got a Guru/”nerd” out to help you out. I don’t think even a Guru could help me!
    Love and chortles,
    Riley-Puppy and Tessie-Girl and Mum

    • That little chortle was indeed a love note. He was telling me he was happy and having a good walk. His voices were carefully chosen to communicate whatever he was thinking and feeling. Believe it or not, he could get very, very “pissy” and he let you know it, too! So glad your day was totally made! Thanks for the friendship.

      • lauramarec says:

        That is so cool and precious! Well, you know how Royalty can be very exacting because they are SO special, so yes, I believe you that Our Stu could get very “pissy”, and we who love him very much, would naturally overlook it just because he IS so SPECIAL! He is Precious AND Adorable! It was so special and heart-warming to see him moving and talking again! Thank you so much! (P.S. I sent you an email did you receive it?)

    That was a Made My Day moment. Thanks for sharing. Shelby loves all of the videos.

    I love Stuart doggie noises. ❤

  17. Nice. Word on the street that is exactly how Stuart conveys to the wait staff at Angus Fala’s boiled egg and ice cream parlor at the Rainbow Bridge that he wants a single scoop of French Vanilla with hamburger sprinkles. = Ainsley McKenna, CEO, Angus Fala Worldwide Enterprises

  18. Piglove says:

    aaww – it was like he was sending a ARROO out to you for finding that video. How precious that is my friend! XOXO – Bacon

    Mom got lost in that clip and played it over and over. It almost looks like an app that colored Stuart but we know that is his birth given decadence. That is truly a treasure! We then heard her mumble she must get a video of us “talking” which we have been doing more and more of lately.

  20. Oh, you Scotties speak a similar dialect to us Cairns! That is a fantastic find!

  21. Ranger says:

    Aweeeeeee….. talkies!!!!! SWEET.

  22. Piper macT says:

    Dunno, everytime dad logs in here, his eyes leak… Then he snuggles me, and I DO NOT SNUGGLE…

  23. Marty the Manx says:

    OHHHHH How wonderful to find. It made me cry but so happy to see Stuart 🙂 What a treasure 🙂

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
