Throwback Thursday – Dr. Winston

I actually graduated from Obedience School. Waaay back when.

If I were in school now, it’d be some kind of graduate degree program. And I’d be the professor. Just call me Dr. Winston, professor of Stubbornology.

How many of you would be in my class?

Thankful Thursday – Throwback too

It’s also Throwback Thursday. Here I am as a little puppy.

Friends, Happy Throwback and Thankful Thursday.

Because of your generous and thoughtful support of Stuart’s Fund and the 2022 T-Shirt Campaign, The Peepstress asked that I share the results of the campaign: your $243.91 was matched by the Scottie Chronicles for grand total of $500.00 toward hemangiosarcoma research.

Now THAT’S something be thankful about!

AND, if that weren’t enough, you can still support research efforts because the Stuart’s Fund Store is still open!

Y’all are the best. And I’m happy to call you friends.

I’d forgotton how cute I was.

Throwback Thursday

Whew. I thought they’d never make up their mind.

It may not look like much, but THIS is me when I made the journey to live with my new peeps. Back in 2017. I was only four months old.

Tail in the water bowl.

And since I missed National Puppy Day yesterday – I was too busy trying to raise money to get rid of hemangiosarcoma, that awful disease that took Stuart’s life – I missed showing you how precious I was as a pup.

Now you know.

For those who know, it’s time for another installment of WWCW, better known as Winston’s Watercolor Wednesday. It harkens back to StuART – Watercolor Wednesday. We had to carry on the tradition. But switch it up a bit. For Winston.

Now you know. Soooo…’s an oldie but goodie while we create new art of Winston.

7 more days

While it’s still Scottish Terrier Month (unofficially of course) you still have time to snag a sporty new T-shirt for yourself, or someone else. Or even a sweatshirt. With a hood AND a pocket!

After next Tuesday, March 29, they’ll all be gone. That is to say that the 2022 Stuart’s Fund campaign will be over.

There are more colors to choose from and a youth size, too! (We think of everything.)

It seems more and more dogs are lost to hemangiosarcoma these days, or maybe we’re extra sensitive to it. Either way, let’s help find a test and a cure. OK? You can be a part of the solution!

Thank y’all for your help.

Top o’ the mornin’

Top o’ the mornin’ to one and all.

No amount of green beer, shamrocks and four-leaf clovers will bring Stuart back. But we CAN help stop hemangiosarcoma.

Wishful Wednesday

With yesterday’s celebration of Stuart’s birthday, it’s time to help put an end to the dreadful disease that took his life. And the lives of so many dogs before him. There are still too many precious pups leaving us too soon. With no diagnosis until it’s too late. With no test. With no treatment that really makes sense.

Your purchase of the 2022 Stuart’s Fund T-shirt – in all kinds of styles, colors and sizes, including kids – gets us one step closer to learning critical details about this cancer. Buy now. And often. Help spread the word.

Stuart would thank you very much.

Here’s wishing the end of pain and suffering. From hemangiosarcoma and all the ills that plague the world.

Thank you.

Happy Barkday Stuart

Sixteen years ago today a most wonderful of any friend one can imagine was born. Born to people who didn’t like him because he was different. His tale was bent. He had too many spots of white in his brindle and black coat. He didn’t fit the mold. He couldn’t get top dollar.

But he won our hearts and many of yours, too.

From the moment he was placed in my arms as an eight-week-old pup, to the day he passed in his Dad Peep’s arms in 2015, Stuart wiggled his way into our lives in the most precious of ways.

His expressive personality, his joyous love of life, his hatred of squirrels and his fondness for food. And daffodils. And the beach with its rolling waves. His talking and letting you know what was on his mind. And wiggling his way under the fence to visit Sniglet.

We’ve got lots to talk about.
A quiet little snooze amongst the daffodillys.

Here’s to you Stuart. And to YOU. All of our friends. Thank you for being a part of our lives.


Oh…and thank YOU Stuart. For leading us to Winston.

Our precious bearded wonder: Winston.
