Stuart’s Always With Us

I’ve heard this a thousand times. But only recently has my grieving heart been open enough to know it’s true.

Stuart is, and always will be, with us.

He finds subtle ways to let us know he’s there.

Today, I noticed this:

Lone pastel pink impatiens popping up through the bricks where none has ever appeared before. Right behind the Scottie statue. On the front steps where Stuart loved to hang out and watch the world go by.

I just love it. There’s no other reason for this volunteer plant to appear now. At this time. Other than he placed it there. (I can visualize him standing, staring with unwavering Scottie attention, commanding that plant to GROW! Grrrr! Or else!)

Thank you for helping me see what I’ve been missing all these months.

And thanks to you, Stu, for the wonder you’re still giving us.

ArrOOOOO! Rooooo to you! My sweet boy! And beloved BoBo, too, of course!

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!

    Wow….. and is pink your favorite color peeptress??
    Stuart is a wonder for sure. 🙂

    • I’ve never thought about it, but I do like me some pink. And orange. And red. And lime green. Huuum….

      He is a wonder. And continues to be doesn’t he? BoBo is too. After all, he “sent” Stuart to us.

      I’ve always known Scotties are brilliant. Just like you two!

    That is SOOOOO special! Stu really is with you, of course! And it is because you were so close that you are able to see and sense all of these tokens of love Stu leaves for you in all of the places he frequented, and still does…always watching out for you, letting you feel his love and caring, telling you that though his precious earthbound body had to leave, does not mean that the real Stu left you–he is STILL there, always with you!
    Very loving of him to let you know he is there for you! That’s our Stu—ever caring and loyal! What a beautiful Love Story!
    Arrrooo to Stu and to you,
    Riley-Puppy and Tessie-Girl and Mum

    Tory had a special place in the Thanksgiving Room ( it is really the dining room that was only used on Thanksgiving when my husband was alive) and since Tory died, all of the other Scotties vie to rest in this place. He has been gone for more than 10 years and the spot is hardly ever empty.

  6. WestScott says:

    Yes, that could only be there, in that location, because of sweet Stuart. He will ALWAYS be there in ways that will mystify you.

  7. Fozziemum says:

    Impatiens are symbolic of Motherly what a lovely lovely sign 💖💖💖

  8. Kismet says:

    The big sign from Stu would be if it were a dilly in August.

    Stu working his Scotty magic 🙂

  10. How very sweet of Stuart to bring you a smile with the flower – of course he KNEW you’d know it was from him and that it was his way of reminding you that he will forever occupy a corner of your heart and soul. What a really touching reminder from him too – a pink flower of love.

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

  11. Awwwwwww – Stuart is sending you a smile☺ They are always with us♥

  12. What lauramarec expressed so beautifully (as always). While I was late in finding your blog before Stuart received his ticket to the Bridge, I understand his continued presence, as Noah sends Skyler and me signs as well, and I still cry for him, even though Skyler is a most loving and beloved companion. Right around Thanksgiving, he steps up the communication. The 4th anniversary of my husband’s death is this Sunday. The Spirits are making themselves known. Our house is filled with ghosts right now.

  13. Yes, he will go with you through life!! I feel the same way about my Lilly”bug”!!

  14. Piglove says:

    Bless your heart!! I’m sending you major hogs and snout kisses my friend. The signs are there. We just have to look for them. But sometimes the grief is so overwhelming that we can’t see. Stuart will *always* be with you watching over you. I love this blog you did today. Love you. XOXO – Bacon

    Every times we see butterflies that flutter around us, we know it’s Benny

    That pink flower is Stuart’s pink tongue waiting to give kisses at the first touch. He is there with you always (and BoBo too).

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
