We are three gorgeous (and loved) Scottish Terriers who share our lives with our people and our "Heinz 57" on a farm in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Please join us in our day to day experiences.
Our Mom says "Life is so much merrier with a Scottish Terrier".
We are thrilled at the interest in the blog world of our new contest. We have enjoyed getting to meet so many new furriends. We hope that more dogs, kitties and hammies will find out and jump on the bandwagon. Your pictures are marvelous and our Mom is working to get them together in a post - it might take two or three, but we'll get them all. Some of you have asked when it will be over - we have no way of knowing, but it will run for about 2 weeks - it will be over when we hit our 100th post and the winner will be announced that day. We will leave reminders as we come close to it.
Mom and Dad are both prospective members of the Scottish Terrier Club of Western Virginia and we had a meeting on Saturday. Carrleigh and Lilly got to go.
Carrleigh is the best rider. She gets hooked in her seatbelt harness and just lies down for a nap.
Lilly likes to ride in the front seat so she had her leash hooked in Mom's seatbelt and sat on Mom's lap the whole way.
See how enthused she is!!
Unfortunately we didn't get to really sniff any other Scotties. We were supposed to have an obedience class but it was too hot, so we had to stay in an air conditioned run. We were a little nervous because we had never been around that many doggies before. Were we really glad when we saw Mom coming with our leashes to take us home!!
But on the way home we got to have a Fig Newton - you should try one sometime - they are so delicious. We ate them so quickly that Mom couldn't get a picture of us.
Have a Magnificent Monday and don't forget to "stick out your tongue" and post your pictures.
And welcome to TRUE COLOURS THURSDAY and today's color is MAROON. Our host for this event is Blue and should you wish to play along, go over to her blog and inform her and your are in - it's that easy. Next week's color is LEMON.
When Mom and Dad were away this past weekend, they went to the little town of Dillsboro, NC for lunch on Sunday. While they were there, the maroon Great Smoky Mountain Railroad train came through - now they are thinking about a trip up there to ride the train this fall when the leaves are at their peak.
Most of you know that Virginia Tech is right down the road from us. The maroon and orange Hokie bird is their mascot. Their head football coach, Frank Beamer is from our county.
When Mom was a little girl (spoiled rotten) her Dad didn't want her to have to walk to the school bus since our drive way is .6 mile long. We know you Europeans are laughing at this. But to tell the truth, it's uphill all the way. So he got our Granny a 1949 Maroon Dodge Coupe to haul Mom back and forth to the bus. That car took them on a lot of adventures. This is not the car he got for them, but it is the same style.
Have a fabulous Thursday and enjoy our colorful world,
XOXO Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java
PS - Our Mom has always thought she would like to have a pair of dark red (maroon) cowboy boots - hehe!!
Good Morning All, And welcome to Wheely Wednesday. First we think we might better explain about the "cow situation". Mom and Dad left to go on their trip with friends (who picked the "no dog" place) on Saturday morning. Our dogsitter, Miss Donna, came to check on us that afternoon and then again in the evening. When she came for the evening check, there was a cow in the yard and the gate was open. We didn't think too much about it because our friend, Freddie, helps us check on the cows and we thought he might have forgotten to close the gate. Donna closed it. When she came back Sunday morning and afternoon, all was well, but when she came back on Sunday evening, there were 12 cattle in the yard and the gate was open again. This really concerned Mom and Dad so they decided to cut the trip short and come home. It would devastate them if someone broke into our house and hurt or stole one of us.
Mom, Dad and their friends did get to spend one day antiquing though. The first place they went to was called School House Antiques. It is a huge old school house that is full of wonderful antiques. When they got there, it was still closed.
In a few minutes, a nice man opened the door and they went in.
The first thing Mom saw was this big wheelie. It was as big as a full grown Scottie!! She thought it would be nice to push it around for a tour. (but of course she couldn't do that)
Check out this lovely pillow!
They saw a myriad of items and even a dog who slightly resembled Tank followed Mom around.
There were several Airedale figurines, but this was Mom's favorite because it looks so regal
And this is one of the pieces that came home to us. Even though it's a tie rack, we think it will end up in the kitchen.Have a wonderful Wednesday.
when we see the suitcases come out. It means someone is going on a trip (or not!!) So far we haven't seen any traveling crates added to the stack
Mom has been on the telephone with Miss Donna a lot lately. We heard her tell Miss Donna to not let Carrleigh eat anyone's leftovers. And that our food bins would be marked.
And we heard her tell Miss Vicki that she needed to get away and go junking in some antique malls. It's a good thing she bought that big box of treats last week or we'd be worried about our treat money. Do you think the peeps are slipping away for a trip or something? Who will turn on the computer so we can paw our blog? We will have to wait until Mom gets back to let you know what's going on.
Until we paw again, XOXO Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java
And welcome to True Colors Thursday. Today's colors are Black and Tan in honor of our good bloggy buddies, Maggie and Mitch. If you've never played along before, you are invited to do so. Just go over to Blue's Blog and let her know you wish to play along and then you're in!! It's that easy.
When we first saw the colors, we thought we just might have to snag a few pictures of our "dale" and "welshie" buddies for our post today, but we did come up with a few.
This first picture is in honor of our sister, Kat. She has wanted a rottweiler puppy for years. But she lives in a "pet-free" apartment.
When Mom was looking for a picture of a traditional "Black and Tan", she found this. She doesn't know if it's a joke or not!!
Our Great-uncle Jim, who was Mom's dog mentor raised champion beagles. This 'black and tan' picture is in his memory.
And here's Mom's "Black and Tan". On St. Paddy's Day you might find her indulging in one of these.
Of course no post is really complete without a picture of us. If you put us all together, we might qualify for black and tan. (we qualify for a good grooming, which we think is coming today!)
Have a Terrific Thursday, XOXO Lilly, Piper,Carrleigh and Java
If you haven't met Twix from A Weiner Dog Blog, you should go by and visit. She is atweenie red Dachshund who is 9 years old and very spoiled. She awarded us with the "Just Shoot Me" award.
Here are the rules: 1. Post it to the blog and link to who gave it to you. 2. Choose 5 life situations that could be repeated in slow motion and explain why. 3. List twelve blogs and let them know you've given them the award.
We all love riding in the Polaris - even Java
Watermelon is one of our favorite treats.
If there is sun shining anywhere, Lilly will seek it out and lie in it. Carrleigh loves puppies, whether they are hers or Lilly's. (so do Mom and Dad)
We all look forward to Fridays because we always have pizza for supper. We love it no matter where it comes from the grocery store, Pizza Hut, Pizza Inn or Mom's good homemade pizza.
It's all good!!
Have a Terrific Tuesday and if you don't already have this award, please snag it for yourself.

Scots swimming in the snow
Check us out!! We had a foot of snow the 1st of March. We liked it and did Piper ever get covered with little snowballs. His skirt is the longest!! Imagine that. I don't know why we girls couldn't have longer furnishings.
