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 were so excited when we found out that Snazzi Jazzi and Edgar had declared today, December 4, 2010 as DWB National Taco Day.
From the time that Mom started browning delicious Rocky Creek Farm beef in a skillet on the stove, we started getting excited. We knew something good was going to happen.
There was a lot of lip-licking going on at our house.
Then she started chopping up the yummy veggies that go with tacos - and our favorite - the shredded cheddar cheese. The onions are for our peeps - we know that onions can be toxic to dogs so we don't have them on our tacos.
We waited patiently as she fixed our plates.
1-2-3-4 Four plates with a taco each and four of us - works out perfectly!
Mom tried to feed us separately and get pictures of each of us, but there was too much excitement - and we all converged on the plate of the slowest eater to help him get all of the mess cleaned up.
YUM! YUM! YUM!
Thank you Snazzi and Edgar for coming up with this wonderful idea - we are already looking forward to celebrating it next year.
On December 1, 2008, Mom got the joy of delivering her first Scottie puppy. And was she ever excited when she saw that it was a Wheaten - It was hard for her to believe that a dog as black as Lilly could have a wheaten puppy. She named this first puppy, Lacey. Lacey's name is now Sweet Petite Madeline - Maddie for short.
Three "buglets" came that day - all healthy, squirming and crying. The second one was a Wheaten boy that Mom called Polar - his peeps named him, McDhubh (MacDoo).
After two Wheatens, Lilly finally gave birth to a black-brindle boy that Mom named Mr. T because he had a white "t" on his chest. But now his name is Obie Trevino.
This is one of our favorite pictures of Maddie with her parents - it looks like her Dad, Piper, is giving her advice, while her Mom, Lilly, looks on - you can barely see Lilly's black nose in the foreground.
Soon, it was time to take their 8 week portraits.
Obie was the first to leave for his new home - even though we knew he was going to a wonderful home, our Mom cried all day the day before he left.
Sweet little Maddie was the last one to leave us.
Here is Maddie now - a beautiful young lady who will be 2 years old tomorrow.
Obie was an only "kid" in his family for a couple of months - his big sister, Oreo, went to the Rainbow Bridge shortly after he went to live with them - but now he has a little sister, Ebony (on the right) and a human brother, Trystian.
Unfortunately, shortly after McDhubh went to his new home, he was involved in a tragic accident - we still grieve for him.
But we are always thrilled to get to know all of the wonderful people that our puppies introduce us to.
She asked if we would be interested in trying out a collar and then reviewing it on our blog.
There are a lot of fancy collars on their website, but since Christmas is right around the corner, we decided that we'd like to try the Jingle Bell Dog Collar.
We were all intrigued by it, but a little bit frightened. All of we adults took one step back and that left Ruairi to be the first to try out the collar.
He looked very handsome wearing it, but we all got a big laugh at his expense - the bells on it ring so nicely that every time Ruairi took a step, he turned around to see where the noise was coming from.
We all felt like the beautiful red collar would show up best on a black dog.
So Lilly got to try it - she was more interested in looking for treats than modeling so Mom could hardly get a good picture of her.
The Jingle Bell Collar is a nice leather collar and made very well. While it would be a lot of fun to wear while entertaining in your home, strong dogs like us need a more substantial collar - and it does come in a wider size which would be better for us.
We appreciate the opportunity to try it out and you can bet that when we entertain during the holiday season that one of us will be sporting this lovely collar.

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.
