My name is Marion Kimberley-Scott and I live on the outskirts of Scunthorpe, the industrialised area of North Lincolnshire. I have been devoted to Scottish Terriers nearly all of my life and wouldn’t be without the companionship of my dogs.
My hobbies include various types of handicraft work, and I enjoy fund-raising for charity.
Two charities very close to my heart are:
I am also a volunteer ‘Helper’ for Doglost.
I hope you enjoy your visit to this website, and will share anything you have ‘Scottie related’ with other visitors.
If you live in or around North Lincolnshire and are interested in raising funds for animal charities at local events, please let me know. If sufficient people are interested I’ll consider applying for ‘fund raising space’ at an agreed local venue. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just before Christmas 2011, ‘rescue’ Scottie ‘Kyle’ joined our family and it is now hoped that ‘Kyle’ has found his ‘forever home’ with us. Please click on the image below to view the slideshow.
"Please will you keep me within your heart?
And if memories make you smile
It will mean we will never part;
We can walk that extra mile.
Feel my touch in the summer rain,
Or the brush of a butterfly wing;
See my smile when sunbeams dance;
Hear my voice when the blackbirds sing.
Protect all the little helpless things,
That I have loved so much;
Look at the beauty of the stars,
Keep gentleness in your touch.
And when you are tending your garden,
Or see love in a dog's faithful eyes;
When you are feeding the little wild birds,
Then I'll be by your side."
It is sometimes wise to remind ourselves of Nellie's beliefs, in the hope that we may follow in the shadow of her footsteps.
I am indebted to the patience and skills of my husband, Roger, for the design and creation of this website and to Joe Holland for permitting the reproduction of verses from Nellie's Eulogy (written by Nellie) and for allowing this dedication.
This website is dedicated to the memory of the late Nellie Holland - founder of the Scottish Terrier Emergency Care Scheme (STECS).
