Thanks for the memories Big Guy.
We’re flying a black flag today. We’re in mourning.
Hang on to your seats. This is going to be a bumpy four-year-ride.
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!
So are we. God help us all

It’s raining here. I’m two hours from DC. I can only pray that it pours there all day.
In the words of Clint Eastwood “Barack Obama is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people”. Do not let the door hit you in the butt on your way out! The
I thought about removing this comment, but, just as I have, you have a right to express your opinion. And unlike the illegitimate president elect with narcissistic personality disorder, I’ll support your right to speak. I’d like to know why you feel President Obama was a fraud. Not born in the U.S.? Wrong. A Muslim? Wrong. (And why would that even matter?) Please keep your comments respectful and I’ll respect you. But don’t deny me or anyone else the right to fly a black flag in mourning for the American people and for those around the world who fight for freedom and human rights as well as defend the dignity of the Office of President of the United States.
my whaaaaat was to the comment you just replied to……very well answered!!!!
Yes indeed peeptress…. I have a pirate flag – thinking of flying that for the next four years as AliBaba & the Corporate Thieves take over. Ugh!
Yes. Our neighbor thought it was a pirate flag. When we explained it, they said, “Oh! How true!”
Do it! Please!
Don’t worry! I understood! I do respect the rights of others, but this is just too much for one person – or a whole country – to bear. Isn’t is astounding that a proven lying, misogynistic, foul-mouthed, corrupt individual mislead his way into the gullible and vulnerable hearts and minds of the very people who need respectful, experienced leadership the most? When the Affordable Care Act is dissolved or amended as expected, they’ll wonder what happened. When Medicare is altered or disappears, they’ll be dumbstruck. When the rich keep getting richer, and journalism fights to tell the truth to deaf ears, and the future of middle class Americans gets dimmer and dimmer all the while bearing the tax brunt, and quality education disappears, and the basic right of women to manage their own bodies erodes while a panel of white men control the country, we MUST go “high” while the tsunami of “low” rolls over us all. Unbelievable. We were on a roll with positive change over the last eight years. Now we’re rolling back into the Dark Ages.
I am watching the inauguration now and congratulating America on a mostly peaceful transfer of power and being an example for the rest of the world. You may not respect the man but you must respect the office and the country or tyranny Reigns.
I understand your point. And I thank you for bringing it up. The circumstances of this election’s outcome, however, have made me question the office as it now stands. Things need to change in America. Our election process – at every level, and all levels of government. If this administration does nothing but fuel this change, then I’m all for it. Until then, the office of president – as it exists today – needs to earn my respect. And I’m sad to say that. I’ve always held my head high as an American when I’ve traveled abroad. Now, I’m not so sure. Thank you for giving me food for thought today. Perhaps when things are not so raw, I’ll have a change of heart.
Thank you for putting into words my feelings today. It is a sad day in American history, we can only hope and work for it not to be the end of America. Now, onward to the Women’s March!
I like your thinking. “We can only hope and work for it not be the end of America.” That kind of language I can embrace!
You were talking about holding your head up when you travel to other countries. You do know what the heads of other countries around the world were calling our past president don’t you? President Obama was referred to as the empty suit. There’s not much pride or respect in that moniker.
I’m reminded of the visit the Obamas made to the Queen of England. Prince Philip drove to pick them up when they landed at Windsor Castle – something unheard of. President Obama “hopped in” next to Prince Philip and Mrs. Obama sat in the back next to the Queen. Priceless. Many people at home and abroad disrespectfully referred to President Obama as “an empty suit”. You’re right. Many people also refer to him as one of history’s greatest American presidents. It’s up to each of us to decide for ourselves. One thing’s for sure, no one will ever say either of those things about the current office holder.
Hang on….it’s already rough. Strength to you and yours.
He will be missed here….now this…the hypocrisy is appalling…
Yes, yes, yes. Hypocrisy.
Quoting one Hollywood star to discuss this reality star yet decry all other Hollywood stars…hypocrisy..ugh
ugh. yes. it’s ugly. so let’s get back to the beauty of nature and all its splendor. Hope you’re well my special friend.
All well and good (the variety of political comments) … but from a Canadian’s perspective: Can we just focus on what really matters?? SCOTTIES!! We cannot change the current political situation but we sure can change our focus to something a bit more happy and pleasant. Since this is supposed to be a Scottie blog, correct? Just sayin’.
You are SOOOOOO right. But I really like that picture of Stuart in the Presidential frame!!! Back to Scotties. Promise. I don’t do this very often. And Stuart would probably bite me going the political route. Well, not bite me. But turn his butt toward me and ignore me. Thank you for bringing it back around my Maple Leaf Pal. ArOOOOO!
Scotties RULE ! our hearts and that is often what keeps us going…..lets join our Diehard furiends and keep on going…….or as Dory says….just keep swimming just keep swimming……
Don’t you love Dory??? I do. If Scotties could swim, they’d be right there with her.
And this Country is Great!
You’re right. This country is great. Always will be.
It was already great…. don’t need the con man to try and divide us and believe his crap!
Ozzy & Callie, my scotties who ground me as to unconditional love, have spent the day with me watching TCM channel. Arooo….
Woooo Hooooo! I love me some TCM channel. I worked today. Writing positive articles about philanthropy. It was good. AROOOOOOOO! DIDN’T WATCH ANY NEWS!
I have had my memorial candle lit since the election. One of my cousins called me immoral for my support of the Democratic candidate. I was not as generous as you with my feelings. Our Halloween president( orange with a black heart) has totally ribbed me the wrong way. He should be banned from all social media. Once it is out there, you can’t take it back. He needs a filter and some knowledge of the Constitution. God save us all from the next 4 years. I will not be watching anything associated with this farce. Thanks to a large stockpile on my DVR, I’m set for a while.
I’m following your lead about the news boycott. That’s what antenna TV is for.
Doh, Dad hit the wrong button… Anyhow, if nothing else the next 4 years will be interesting, Me, I like boring. Still,14 hours and he hasn’t started WW3, we’re on a roll, let’s keep it up.
Interesting yes. Frightening too.
Pingback: SCOTTIE Saturday | The Scottie Chronicles
This is what we in the tri state area have been dealing with ~~ it has been a really rough ride and getting worse.
Faced with guns at a public library and by men saying repeal women’s right to vote signs.
The latter one trying to beat my Lee up. But I got into the fight. I am Lee’s hero. We have just been trying to keep our heads down.
Now that is bullshit ( excuse my french), Stuff like that makes me see red.
Thanks Piper macT ~ I saw red also, unfortunately Lee just looks black and blue.
THIS IS…..don’t get me started. Sweet William, you’re a hero. Don’t mess with you! Is Lee OK????
Oh my, Sweet Will! We have that Lee is alright. Good Scottie, stepping in and protecting your peep! That video was frightening.
Edgar &I his mum
We marched on Saturday. We hope the energy stays and people don’t get discouraged into in action again. As tired as we are being upset, it sure helps keep us motivated to enact change!
Edgar & his mum.
*inaction is what it should have said above.
Yep the pink hats really turned out! We were really glad to see waves and waves of them.
I wish I had a pink hat!
Mum would be happy to make one for you!
yep! Just let her know where to send it!
OH! You are so kind! I’d be so proud to wear it. I wonder if I have your peemail address? I’ll send it to you there. Or, you can write me at StuartTheScottieAThotmail.com and we can share it that way. CAN’T WAIT!!!!
