We said goodbye to our beloved Scottie this evening. And with that I reflect on what this small, 27-pound bundle of fun taught me over the past 12 years. Throughout my life I’ve had many wonderful dogs, but none have been as special to me as Mackie. She will be forever missed, remembered, understood, and appreciated as such: Patience is for the Owner, not the Scottie Persistence will win out Ornery is fun to be around Straddling a basketball can be used to sooth a tummy ache, or it can simply be for your entertainment A Scottie can pass a vocabulary … Continue reading The Mackie Teachings Daily Cap(s) (204)
The Scottie Queen Mackie spent the day at home today, that is after first spending an hour at the vet’s getting blood work checked this morning. Those internal organs are being somewhat ornery, letting Mac’s liver function get back to “normal”, yet keeping us concerned for her kidneys (their behavior, much like a typical Scottie, remains abnormally “high”). She is looking much better, acting a wee bit more like the Mac of old, and thankfully still has her Scottie-ness, although it has been a bit dampened. Regardless, she indulged me with her patience this evening…. Thanks everyone that has asked … Continue reading Mackie is Aroooo-ing aloud
Today’s post marks the halfway point of the 365 “The Daily Cap(s)” effort for 2012. And I need to give a h-u-g-e thank you to all the old friends, new friends, and visitors that have been a part of the first 182 posts. There are several followers that are family, and then there are several more that I consider family (and you know who you are…:) ) I may be trying some “daily” themes – don’t know yet – but my hope is I don’t bore you to tears with the next 183 posts….

Mackie, Mack-a-do, Mac-a-roni, Mackers, Mack, Mack-Attack…I call her all those names, along with “Hey You Baby Girl”, “Such a pretty girl”, “Goofy Ball”, and “Goodness Sakes”. But mostly she is referred to as “Your Highness, the Queen of Scots”!
Her and Scottie Gal Pal Zoey get their hair and nails done tomorrow…they’ve been invited to Prince William and Kate’s wedding so don’t you know a gussey-up is warranted. Funny, the Royals always act as if they are embarrassed to have their pictures taken afterwards.
I hope you guys enjoy my style of photography because pictures might get more plentiful here in the next few days…
The latest (today) addition to the arsenal is on the left.
From my good friend and co-worker Larry, an avid mountain biker, who said he stopped along the trail and photographed this tree with my dogs in mind. It definitely looks like a Scottie dog. Is it Mackie? Zoey? from Texas. Perhaps Molly? Bonnie? visiting from Kansas. Continue reading “Tree Scottie”
This morning, the Queen and Princess watched the morning arrive and the first day of Spring.
Yes indeed they are, but on this post I was more thinking the Scottish canines were looking particularly good these days….
The royal court got all gussied up last week…it even seemed to help Queen’s arthritis
Wow – it’s been 1 year since Sadie the Scottish Terrier won the Westminster Dog Show…it seems only like yesterday. Almost to the day one year ago I proudly wrote I’ll see your Sadie, and raise you Mackie – not the most popular of posts, but one of pride and contentment in so doing.
