Sit! Stay! Good Boy.

As you know, Stuart was a good boy. When he was told to sit. He sat. When he was told to stay. He stayed. Until he got bored.

Wonder what’s up with this big guy? He’s not going anywhere!

While on my blogging break in February, the Dad Peep and I came across this sculpture in Den Bosch, The Netherlands.

It’s an hour train ride from Amsterdam. We went to see the 500 year celebratory exhibit of the works of Jheronimus Bosch.

If you’ve a mind to visit this year, you must. It’s an extraordinary exhibit and Den Bosch is a wonderful town.

I think Stuart would have liked to live there! Very dog friendly, as most places in Europe are.

Actually, this sculpture reminded me a bit of Stuart. He had what we called “a casual sit” as if he were sitting on only one haunch. See if you can spot the pose. Does it remind you of someone you know?

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog 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. He would have been 11 years old in March 2017. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Kali gets bored easily (unless she’s napping).

    As Andy and Duffy have gotten older, they have not minded as much. They will still “sit” and “stay”, but only after several requests. Duffy does have that side-sit down pat. This looks like great exhibit.

    That big boy definitely looks solid – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Awwww….those ears! That tail! Just more of a longer body and he’d look like my beloved Bassets, Fresca and Moonie!

  6. There is so much to see in a Bosch. Mama sez sometimes his paintings get a little gory or scary (like the Hot Place Mama is going to when she transitions), but hey! She sez he has artistic liberty…..whatever that means.

  7. We are glad you had a nice holiday and thanks for sharing your pictures!
    Jolie Amie, my 12 year old standard poodle is very good with sit, stay and down – when I have a treat or she is in the mood. Now that she is a little old lady she is less eager to please and she does have arthritis so I can tell she is hurting. Of course she is still my sweet, loving poodle girl and I am thankful for each day we have together.

    Mum says she’d love to go see da exhibit! It sure sounds FAB! And da fact dat Amsterdog is so doggie friendly sure is a great BIG plus–Mum and us Loves dat fur sure!
    Stu was stylish no matter if he was staying or sitting casually. His Scot-Tux always made him very Classy and of course, Handsome!
    Thank you for sharing dis great doggie friendly exhibit and destination with us!

    Sit and stay are not in the vocabulary on my Scotties. I’ve learned to live with it.

  11. Yes I see the sit. (I think) 😀

  12. Haha! Edgar often sits like that too – with one back leg out to the side. Our favorite is when he frog-dogs, though. He will be nine this year and I always wonder if it will be harder on hips as he gets older…

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
