our post about avocados.
Many wanted the info that Sharda Barker
had emailed to Mom and others wanted
the recipe for the Avocado Won Tons.
Sharda's was partly informational
and partly an advertisement to purchase
her latest book.
But the scary part that she stated was that the
Animal Poison Control Center
has listed that persin,
an element in avocados, is known
to be toxic to pets.
They note that it can cause tissue damage
to the heart and lungs as well as
severe stomach problems, vomiting
Different types of avocados
can cause different reactions.
IOHO, it's just best to forgo them.
Avocado Won Tons that Mom
made for our human company.
She is happy to share the recipe with you.
Just email her at
rockycreekscotties at yahoo dot com
and she will get it on it's way to you.
challenged us to a little game.
There are 10 questions to answer
and then we need to tag some others
to join in.
(No, Mom, it's not Patrick Swayze)
We would say it would have to be somedog like Toto or Rin Tin Tin.
2. Apart from your house and car, what is the most important item you have ever acquired?
We would think it would be that Mom and Dad searched for us and found us at our breeders - guess that would be home, not house, right?
3. What is your most treasured memory?
For us Scotties, it was to meet our big brother (and role model), Java
4. What was the best gift you ever received as a child?
Our first set of dog tags - they made us jingle just like Java.
5. What was the biggest mistake you have ever made?
That would be trying to bite Dad's heels.
6. Four words to describe yourself.
Outgoing, loyal, energetic and hungry.
7. What was your highlight or lowlight of 2008?
Carrleigh and Piper have to agree that it was moving to Rocky Creek Farm. Lilly and Java have to agree that it was having Carrleigh and Piper intrude on their little haven on Rocky Creek Farm.
8. Favorite Film?
Our new favorite is Coraline.
9. Tell me one thing I don't know about you.
Lilly - I am the alpha dog in our house.
Piper - Sometimes I chase my tail, but never catch it.
Carrleigh - I would like to be the Alpha female.
Java - I ring the doorbell when I want to come in the house.
10. If you were a comic strip or cartoon character, who would you be?
All of we Scotties would want to be Duncan.
Java would probably like to be Duncan too.
We don't have any specific folks to tag - please answer these questions and post on your blog if you like.
She and her Mom emailed our Mom for
our address and she sent Mom
this unique Scottie pin.
And she sent us some of her floffiness.
We searched the envelope
because we thought she might be in there too.
We enjoyed getting to sniff her!
