Gotcha Day for Corky. I found an ad in the local paper for a lost Scottie. I had just lost my husband the month before and the house was very lonely. I called the lady that placed the ad to find the owner and said that I would be willing to adopt the little girl if the owner was not found. I received a call a day later saying that no one had responded and it was going to be very cold that night. She had kept the Scottie outside. I was at her house within 25 minutes and Cory became part of the household.
She went to the vet the next day and she had just about every ailment possible. Everything was addressed and she lived a long and happy life with me and her Scottie siblings.
We had belated birthday dinner for our people brother this evening. The bribery used to get this semi group photograph was cake and whipped cream. It was not so successful, but it is the best out of 10. Rocky in the background, Sidney, Shelby, and Sophie

I always say that Sophie is a slow to no learner. After 3 years, she barely responds to her name, doesn’t follow directions, and believes in the art of destruction. Yesterday she proved me wrong on one count. I walk Sophie separately from the biggies. She pulls constantly and i have a real fear of tripping. The biggies have a real relationship with my mailman. He always seems to pass by the house when I am out with the oldsters. Her always has as treat for them. I think that he was unaware of Sophie, because he never gave me a treat for her. The last two times I was out with just Sophie and he stopped to give a treat. he asked ,”where is the other one?” I said that there were three Scotties and this was the problem child that had to be walked separately. He gave Sophie a treat and he provided one each for Sid and Shelby. Last night Sophie saw the mail truck coming up the street and started barking. She had made the connection between the truck and a treat. I was a proud momma. I just have to gt the mailman to come over and do more training with her.
fun at the library for Halloween eve
Although the Scotties are not fans of Halloween, they wish all of their friends a happy day. Here are two of our favorite redone pictures of the Scotties in costumes. They were made into tiles in one of the classes available at our local library. Sophie can’t sit still long enough to get a decent picture with her siblings.
Has anyone had any experience with this disease? Sidney was diagnosed this afternoon. He has a bunch of tumors in his bladder. We thought that he kept getting UTI’s, but it was something else. The doctor did not recommend surgery because of the size and numbers of the tumors. He does not act sick. He just has blood in his urine.
