Top of the morning everybody!


We're glad Eilidh is better now - bit of a scare for you all. Well done, Benji, at the vet's for your annual jab and losing some weight. I shall have to go on the scales soon too.

I haven't been able to go out for a walk for a fortnight - Mum has had a bad leg and Chris has severe cataracts and had his first eye surgery last week. Anyway, Mum said we must go out for a walk this morning and I felt so excited. Chris took me over the grassy area now he can see better but poor old Mum had to walk on the path. Mitzi still isn't ready for walkies yet as she hasn't got over being frightened by the lead. Anyway, we're working on this - she's learnt such a lot in the time she has been with us and this is the one big step that she has to learn.


Mitzi and I have had great fun in the garden while Mum has been poorly - we've dug up all the troughs she has planted for the Spring and kicked the earth all over the paths! We do loads of racing up and down the garden after squirrels and lots of hunting for rats and mice. Mum was very cross about digging up the troughs but I told her that we thought there was a rat in the bottom!

That was fun, Benji, sharing the settee with your Mum - Mum moans we don't leave her any room on the bed when we get up there.


Barks to all on scottiedoglovers - Paddy, Mitzi and good old Archie

Hi everyone, Benji here!


Well, we have had a really strange four weeks. Firstly, my sister has been quite unwell with pancreatitis. We were very worried about her. She went to see the vet and was kept in because she was dehydrated. She came home the following day, much brighter, with Penicillin tablets and steroids. She is now back to her old self and has been on a chicken or fish diet with rice. Needless to say I am reaping the benefits too!

Then on Thursday it was my turn for the vet. I got my annual jab. Mum was so proud of me - I behaved perfectly and didn't even flinch when the needle went in. Then I got weighed. In September I tipped the scales at 12.4 kilos - now I am 11.8. At least we are heading in the right direction.

Then Mum had ordered a new bed. It was to be delivered last Friday week. Dad came in with the trailer and took the old bed away. Guess what? All that came was the mattress. Oooh, Mum was hopping mad and saying some bad words. We had our paws stuck in our ears so that we couldn't hear. The bed frame finally arrived on Wednesday. We thought it was great fun all sleeping on the settee. I don't think Mum agrees with that somehow but the new bed is awesome, so comfy!

Finally, we've had email problems. All sorted now though.


We hope you are all well. We are sending love and kisses to you all, with special cuddles for all Mums and Dads.

We have received the very sad news from Penny Gutridge that her beloved 'Rosie' has recently gone to Rainbow Bridge.



A gentle, loving friend, her death has been very painful - for the family and, of course, the other dogs, especially 'Lily', the Scottie, who grew up with 'Rosie' from 7 weeks old.


'Rosie' will, in due course, be remembered in the 'In Memory' section of the website.


Our love and thoughts are with them all at this very sad time.
