Many of you know that the reason we wanted to start blogging was so we could meet some more Scotties. The great thing about blogging is that we have not only met Scotties, but a vast array of other pooches and peeps who we now call friend.

Yesterday a box came in the mail.
it was addressed
to our Mom
in care of Rocky Cr
eek Farm.
It smelled like Scotties were inside.
(and there was
one or three)
But Mom said that
this box
was for her,
not us.
Do you know what she
had the nerve to do?

She has used our blog to connect with "her" friends.
And in doing so
she won a contest.
It's so not fair!
We only hope
she will use
some of he
r winnings
to purchase some dog

While visiting with her friend, Holly,
who is by the way - owned b
y two darling Scotties,Rory and Fiona,

Mom entered a contest
and she won an Amazon Gift Card.

This morning while looking at Amazon,
Mom discovered there where
in excess of 8000 Scottie related items.

What to choose - what to choose
A Scottie WatchScottie sheets

Licorice Scotties

A purse like Holly's
from Dooney and Burke.

The list just goes on and on.
We're voting for
Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Treats
or something similar.
We know there are a plethora
of dog treats listed on Amazon
because we've looked.

But not only did Mom get the gift card
she got a 1/1 limited edition
pen and ink drawing named
"Fall Watching"
by Sarah Sullivan.
Holly commissioned this drawing
just for her 1 year anniversary contest.

We know Mom will be on her way
to the Framer's Daughter soon
to get it framed
and it will hang in a place of honor
in our home.

But the most important thing that Mom received
is the special kinship she feels with Holly
and all of our blogging buddies.

We actually thought of your mom today - we were at a hobby store and saw the cutest apron with scotties on it. Thought of buying it for her, actually - but then found out we'd have to sew it ourselves! It probably would come out looking more like a potholder than an apron based on what I know of my mom's sweing ability!!!

Martine said...

Mango said...

Sorry your mom has been stealing your blog, but I think her award was all about scottie dogs, so that's OK, right?


Footheel Sock Knitter said...

Oh, what lovely Scottie items to choose from... hmmmmm

I would be torn between the wrist watch and the bag.

I can see why she loves the painting, I would be in a hurry to have it framed too!

hugs to you guys!

Teddy & Louie sez to tell you they loved chewing on the big milk bone treats. It took them three days to finish them off. Their mom kept an eye on them when they have treats so they don't get choked or get naughty w/ each other over them. They think Mom has eyes in the back of her head, like school teachers use to have! oh my....

Way to Go to your mom! A win is a great thing. And surprise boxes are even better - whether they are for you or a human! I personnaly like the pink Scottie sheets, but that's just the princess in me showing through.
Puppy Kisses,

Wow! Your moma did a great job with that win! We had no idea there were so many Scottie items. (Moma loves the Dooney and Burke purse.)

Just when we thought she was going to give us some Friday evening scritchies, she's off to Amazon to see what WFT things there might be.

Happy weekend!
Jake and Fergi (your WFT friends) xxoo

That is nice for your Mom. I mean the Moms do work kind of hard, so they deserve a treat now and then. I bet she shares some of it with you. I hope so.

licks and sniffs, Sasha
