A friend and I were talking about her Scottie being unhappy in his new home. They’re in a temporary rental while looking for their dream home.
He’s sad. He mopes around the yard. Sniffs around the wide-slat fence and generally pouts.
Then, it occurred to the Dad Peep and me that HE MISSES HIS SCOTTIE YARD.
Yes, that must be it.
There are no cracks and crevices to patrol. No grass to hide in. No rocks to sniff around. No mulch to lie in. No views from the fence.
He needs a new yard! Or, what I like to call “Scottie Heaven”.
Hope they find a new home SOON.
Stuart loved his Scottie Heaven:
So, if you’re wondering what’s up with your Scot, or if you’re planning the arrival of a Scottie in your life, make sure your yard is SCOTTIE HEAVEN! (Or you have one nearby to visit.)
As Stuart always said, “terrier = earth” and Scots must play in the dirt. They also need good views, perches, rocks, grass and trees to poke around.
FYI- the title of Saturday posts is now “Scottie Scholar Saturday” because you’ll be an expert by the time you read them all. Hopefully.
