It is with much sadness that the former First Dog, Barney Bush has died. Because of my love of Scotties, the Bush’s loss is heartfelt; because of my own Mackie’s death 5 months ago, I know the memories will soon overtake the sadness. RIP Barney knowing you had one heck of a dog run for eight years.

Losing a beloved pet is always difficult; losing a Scottie dog gives reason for all Scotties to aroooo in mournful harmony.

And it is with much excitement that I announce our Princess Zoey, here a before and after photo of her day at the spa…

The Princess Zoey, with her winter coat still on....notice the tinge of redheadedness?
The Princess Zoey, with her winter coat still on….notice the tinge of redheadedness most noticeable on her chest and legs?
The Princess always is relaxed (or is it stress exhaustion?) after a spa day, and always a bit shy (embarrassed?) with her buzz-cut “nakedness”…but all is better (forgotten) after a short nap.

…will soon be joined by a Prince, a handsome fellow (I assume) whose name has yet to be decided.

YES, we get a new Scottie pup in one month! Pictures will follow soon.
