Two Bags and a Box

BoBo’s in the butler’s secretary in the living room. My mother’s in the attic. One’s in a maroon velveteen bag and the other’s in a little black shopping bag.

An interesting way to end up after living a large life, isn’t it?

Stuart, on the other hand, came back to us in a handsome wooden box with an engraved brass name plate. A total surprise to us. But it just happened that way. We didn’t choose any of it.

Isn’t that just like Stuart? Always handsome. Always proper. Always dignified.

No bag for him.

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!

    Those are show-dog quality pictures. He was so dognified, but not snobbish at all. We have 3 boxes from the past. Elsa is in a bag, just looking for the right container for her. She definitely y needs a better home.

    We have no clue where Kyla is. We took the bucks we would have spent to have an individual cremation and gave it to a no kill shelter. Kyla would approve.

  8. Mama never puts anyone in the ground. The Chows are in decorative tins that used to be on her bedside table. PawPaw is in the dining room. He is in what looks like an antique knife box. Josh is in a tall container, Noah is a lovely long wooden box. All the four legers and their collars, leashes, etc are in a Black & White Scotch box. Stuart had his very own vibe & style. And yes, he was proper, dignified, and one gorgeous boy.

    Stuart was a very handsome Scot!! Sending you a hug and just remember one day you will be with Stuart again. He is having a good time running and chasing critters while he waits for you.

    Tog, Watson & Jesse are in small dark Green cans; I affixed photos of each on the cans and they are in my library with an angel statue. Where will you place Stuart’s dignified ‘coffin’??

  11. My soul kitty who passed in 2007 at the age of 18 was named Bobo 🙂


  12. Lee last Scot, Half Pence came back in a cherry wooden box. He came back on his birthday of all days. The first Scot is in a mass grave at a very large pet cemetery near Lebanon, Ohio.
    Lee has just been sad lately.

    Such a dashing boy. Perhaps “his” lovely garden? ❤

  15. WestScott says:

    What a handsome and special boy Stuart was, and lucky to have found you. All of ours are in the bedroom, so they continue to be with us every night. Keep Stuart as near to you as possible, as he would want to be near you. He has touched, and will continue to touch, many admirers.

    I have four little boxes on my night table. Michele has Lexie in her little box. The New York Scotties were not dealt with ar the time. It wasn’t something that was done. The boxes are a reminder of the good times and are a comfort in their own way.

    Yes, ALWAYS Dignified, Handsome and Proper! Always IN-Love with his Peeps and loyal Chronicles followers who love him always too!
    Those pictures of Stu are MAGNIFICENT!!
    Love to you and Stu,
    Riley-Puppy and Tessie-Girl and Mum

  18. Jackie says:

    Sweet Stu.

  19. Marty the Manx says:

    Of course Stu would come back done up right, he always had style 🙂 Oskar has a gorgeous box with a nameplate. Alyce has a nice box, but they did not put a nameplate on it and it seems a bit sad.

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
