Oh. Get ready for this my friends.

I recently became aware of artist Loryn Brantz. She does the coolest Animals on Desserts illustrations.

So, in my suavest of suave email voices, I sent her a little note suggesting that she might think about doing a biSCOTTIE. Because, after all, it’s moi. And why shouldn’t she? Never mind she’s written a couple of books and, uh, won a couple of Emmy awards and stuff like that. She should interrupt her day and do it. Yes?

Well, the rest is history. She must have liked me, because LOOK WHAT SHE DID:


AN ALMOND BISCOTTIE! Just for me. And you!

Thank you my friend, Loryn, you’re the best.


Check out her Animals on Desserts illustrations and her website. Sweet! And I do mean SWEET!

Passing of Sadie the Scottie

The sad news of Sadie the Scottie (2010 Best in Show Westminster) passing away was posted on the Grand Hotel Mackinac Island Facebook page here for more details. She was only 9 years old. We will never forget her! She was a wonderful example for the breed for all time. She is at the Rainbow Bridge with our Brandy and Duffy!

Here is the photo they posted.
