Follow Friday…Jack and Dottie

Bee Duffy from Belfast shares Jack and DottieI had been looking for a Scottie for a while, but couldn’t find any breeders in Ireland. Then I discovered STECS, the Scottish Terrier Emergency Care Scheme. I emailed them and a lovely lady, Karen, got back to me to say she had a 5 year old Scottie named Jack whose owners, were returning to South Africa and couldn’t take him with them…we went to Malahide, a beautiful seaside town. We met in a car park and, after a lot of tears and sadness all round, we put Jack in the car and drove him to his new home. He’s a lovely old boy, a bit grey at the edges but loyal, friendly and well behaved. He likes fish, paddling in the sea and pig’s ears.

About a year and half later, I got an email from Karen. She had a little Scottie girl, called Dottie, who would be a perfect companion for Jack. We arranged to meet at the beach. Dottie, who had probably never seen the sea before, was terrified. Despite her unfortunate start in life, she is the most friendly and affectionate dog I have ever had. She is fearless with other, bigger, scarier dogs but terrified of traffic. She is also the greediest dog I have ever had and can find food in places we wouldn’t even think of. When she first arrived she was over excited by almost everything (some times doing a tiny wee, out of sheer joy!) she rarely kept still, but she learned from Jack that she had to stop jumping up and down long enough for me to put her lead on to take her for a walk.

Follow Friday…Simon and Gordan

Thanks for following our lead, Laura, and sharing these photos of your Black & White Scotties with the Modern Scottie Dog blog readers! Laura writes, “…Simon & Gordan live in Torrington, CT. They are both 5 & will be 6 in November. We got Simon Henry (Black) as a puppy, and 3 1/2 years ago we rescued Gordan (Wheaten) from a puppy mill in Kansas City, through the rescue out there. He is the most lovable Scottie, which most of them its on there own turns. We are seasonal campers, and they both can’t wait until Friday to go to the camper, and take walks.”
