“The Scottie Chronicles” blog is the brainchild of Stuart, an exceptional Scottish Terrier, who, of course, is the center of the universe. (As all Scotties are.)
And I am Stuart. The circumstances of my birth are, I guess, pretty hum drum, but I almost didn’t make it. I look a bit odd as most Scotties go. I’m a brindle and black and white specimen. That’s right. Black, brindle and white. I have beautiful white patches on my back, on my belly and on my chin. (I even had a white toenail when I was a wee lad.) That’s what almost did me in. (Not the toenail. The white.)
See, the people who bred my parents to create me and my siblings were none too pleased to see how I looked when I arrived in the world, so they simply ignored me. That’s animal abuse of the worst kind I think, don’t you? I didn’t know how to play or how to relate to other dogs or to people. It was pretty sad. Those people even thought of putting me out of their misery.
Then it happened. I met Them. They loved me at first sight and here I am. You might say that They paid to rescue me. If you want to know more, check out my very first post.
Back to The Scottie Chronicles.
I’ll attempt to post daily, but you must understand that naptime might overcome my desire to write. Or a chipmunk might call me away from my office. Or I might be running along the ocean. These are just a few of my favorite things.
A couple of things to keep in mind as you peruse my musings….
Only my last 5 posts will display from the Home Page.
To see more, simply choose the Archives option and click on a Title you’d like to read. I recommend that you get to know much more about me by reading The Scottie Chronicles post. (Here’s where you’ll find that I refer to my beloved peeps as “Her,” “Him,” “She,” “He,” etc. With capital letters. It’s just the way I want to write about Them and Us.)
You could also just click on the “previous entries” or the “next entries” option at the bottom of each page of posts to see more of my thoughts and adventures.
Please feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you. I love mail. (Not just the kind that gets stuffed through the door either.)
Check back often. Thanks for visiting.
Editor’s Note: Stuart passed on December 12, 2015, from hemangiosarcoma. The Scottie Chronicles continues in his name as a celebration of the bond between humans and their dogs. Long live Stuart! And welcome Winston, who joined Us three years ago!
