Toby and The Toe

Toby left yesterday. But not before he wiggled his way into our hearts. Make that “Scottied” his way into our hearts.

Scotties have a way of “Scottie-ing” their way into things, don’t they?  They Scottie their way under a bush or into a thicket of ivy. Or Scottie their way into your soul. All of them do that. There’s just something about them.

That toe (cow hoof to be more precise) hadn’t been moved since Stuart left it under the coffee table in the living room last year. Well, that’s not entirely true. We move it to vacuum, but generally it stays in its place. Right where he left it.

The Dad Peep and I are glad Toby found it. And we’re glad he came to visit.




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!

    How sweet that Toby found his way to Stu’s “cow toe”! We love Toby’s chomping action.Toby sure is a cutie, and you are so right about how Scottish Terriers “Scottie their way” into our hearts! Just like Stu did, and now Toby!
    We sure enjoyed his visit just like you did! Thank you for sharing it with us!

    How sweet and how nice to see Toby enjoying one of Stuart’s favorite things. I guess it will go back under the coffee table until Toby’s next visit. Thank you for sharing Toby with us and hopefully we’ll all see him again soon! He Scottied his way into our hearts, too!

    I personally have never had a toe but Toby sure makes it look delicious and why a used toe has to be even better.

    I’ll do it out loud. SQUAAAAAWK! What are you waiting for?

    Toby certainly has nice white teeth! He needs a Blog for us to follow him. I guess he lives in Virginia and I know you Peepstress can help Toby’s Peeps with that???? We have lost too many bloggers lately.

    • You are one astute gal. I’ve always noticed Toby’s nice, white teeth. And to think – he’s 13! You should meet his brother, Banks. A pointer. Those two are hilarious. Maybe a blog is in their future. Or mine. I’ll have to get some pics of them playing. Banks stands over Toby. Like an umbrella. Funny.

  8. well said, they scottie their way directly in our hearts :o) that’s what it is!

  9. Toby is a cutie AND how nice that he found Stu’s TOE! It sure SOUNDS good – if it tastes as good as it sounds – that’s just heavenly. I bet Toby will look for it next time he visits.

    Hugs, Sammy

    • Some pet stores have them, but be careful. Some of them are brittle depending upon where they come from. Some of them are smoked. But all of them stink when you gnaw on them! Do I have your address? I’ll mail you one. Each.

    And PS – think Stuart was glad you had Toby over to visit… nice feeling cuddling a scottie & don’t think Stuart would mind if you got another scottie, permanently, one day.

    I found all kinds of chips and toys in the sofas from the original Florida Scotties. The present three leave little to be found.

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
