Dear Winston

Dear Winston,

Precious boy, just a note to let you know how much I love you. I know you don’t love me yet, but I hope you like me. Even a little bit. Love will come later. It’s something that’s earned. Like trust. And respect.

Two weeks ago yesterday, we took one look at you wriggling with your siblings and we were hooked. You spoke to our souls. And we, I guess, spoke to yours.

Two weeks ago you couldn’t stand a collar much less a leash. Now you’re confidently walking along sniffing the world. Ready to grow, to be curious and to teach us a thing or two.

Two weeks ago you entered your new house as if you’d always lived here. Maybe you have.

Welcome home little man! The Dad Peep and I, your Peepstress, have your back. Be happy. Be healthy. Be yourself. You’re home.


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 – another beautiful post that I read while at work and the waterworks started. Happy tears, of course. I fully understand your sentiments about Winston and the love you feel. And he loves you, he just needs to figure out how to express it, which he’ll eventually do. Great video! Hugs and kisses to Winston!!!

    It took Kali a while-but she was knocked around a bit before we got her.

    Mom has been away awhile and just got caught up with your story about finding Winston and now he is your furkid. She can relate exactly to what you have experienced with the loss of Stuart. I, Fergus left for the RBB in Jan. and Guinness went in Sept, 16 so Mom has wrestled with her grief. We filled her heart to overflowing, but one day in late July she was looking at photos of us and found herself smiling instead of tearing up. The decision was made but she had to wait for little Rocky to be old enough to move in with her and Dad. She drove all the way from PA to Idaho for his little wheaten highness. Yes, he will rule the roost. That is until Wallace comes next week to join the fun. One thing we taught her is two is better than one. Welcome Winston, Mom sends her love to you and your peeps.

    • OOOHHHHH! Words can’t tell you how my heart breaks for you. I’m so very happy for your precious family additions! Thank you for your kind words. Stay in touch!

        We needed to mention that when our staff drove over the mountain west of Cheyenne, WY, there was a double rainbow bright and intense ahead of them. They quickly figured out it was both of us telling them we approve the new kids in the home.

    Oh yeah! A new little Man in your life!!!! So glad we stopped by to check on you all!
    Marty and the Gang

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
