Scholar Summer Assignments

Calling all Scottie Scholars!

Calling All Scottie Scholars!

Pay attention class!

Just because you’re enjoying your summer break, doesn’t mean you can be slack ALL the time. And even if it’s wintertime where you live, you can still do your homework.

Here are some assignments until classes resume:

  • Chase at least three squirrels a week. (Even if it’s the same squirrel, you can go after it three times.)
  • Round up a dozen chipmunks in the next month.
  • Let the mail delivery person know who’s boss. Every day.
  • Pay attention to your peeps at least once a day. (I know. It’s a stretch, but nobody said homework was easy.)
  • Speaking of your peeps, have one take a photo of you tackling one or more of these assignments and send to me at

There might be a chance to earn extra credit.

Now go out there and get barking!


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!

    The squirrel or chipmunk assignment is impossible for me since I’m never off leash outside and my yard isn’t fenced in. I do chase squirrels on our walks, but the peep would probably break her leg trying to take a picture while running after me. I’ll attempt the paying attention to my peep – which I’m real good at if food is involved!

    Boy, this school stuff’s a real challenge! 😞

    Dear Teacher,
    Cans we substitute chasing lizards for chipmunks, please, cuz we don’t has any chipmunks here in So. Calif. We has tons and tons of lizzies, tho’, and Riley loves to chase em!! We has squirrels and we chases dem away from our bird seed feeders all da time, so we cans do da chase squirrels assignment.
    We will try extra hard to do what da Peeps tell us to do, but you are absolutely right…it definitely will be a stretch! We usually don’t has to do dat until around da time mum threatens us to tell Santy-Paws dat she’s gonna tell him if we don’t do what she sez!
    Da last assignment might be tricky since Mum is kinda technically-gizmo-challenged, so it is difficult to get her to ask Dad how to post a picture on da internet, and she is kinda scared to ask him how to do it, cuz Dad has showed her how to do it tons of times, and she doesn’t do it enough times to remember how to do it, so she forgets, and she’s embarrassed about being such a poor rememberer, and she’s sure he’ll blow his top and say: “But I’ve shown you so many times already!”
    So dat last one might be da real toughie assignment! We will get on her to doo eet!
    We hope you are having cool days, cuz our HOT weather has started and da only ones loving it is da Lizzies cuz mum sez dey is cold-blooded (yikes!).
    We love you, Dear Teacher, even tho you are tough on us!

    • Riley and Tessie, yes. Lizards count. You can write a book report about them. That’ll count for a picture. We’re all waiting for a fantastic story about your adventures with the Lizards! Don’t tempt Santy-Paws to miss your house this year. We wouldn’t want that.

    The mailman made the mistake of giving Shelby and Sidney cookies. They now bark at every mail truck that they see. Sophie is walked separately. She missed out on the fun. They have completed the squirrel assignment, but we have never seen chipmunks. Can we substitute ducks?
    Sophie is clueless and never listens. I don’t think that she knows her name. The older two listen when it is to their benefit. The photo should be easy.

    My critters say they can manage the postie assignment and are happy to pretend to be listening to me. ❤

    Does chasing our new sister, Ruby, count? She is a pain, too much energy. Mom keeps telling me n Andy to “be nice”, but it’s getting harder. We will try and pay attention to the Peeps.
