Good Morning,
And welcome to
True Colours Thursday.
If you wish to play along,
just let Blue know
and you're in - it's that easy.

The colour for today is CREAM -
and next week we will be
celebrating the RASPBERRY.
we have one of our Sissy's pictures -
the CREAM coloured sails of
the Irving Johnson
against the blue skies of the Pacific.

Here is one of our CREAM coloured Charolais calves
in the February snow from last winter.

And one of the few "flowers"
Mom can "grow" -
the CREAM Queen Anne's Lace -
what a lovely weed!!

We are the recipients of
The Versatile Blogger Award
presented to us by the wonderful
folks at
The Teacher's Pet.
If you haven't met them,
please go by and say "hi".

We are supposed to tell 7 things about ourselves
and pass it on to 7 bloggers.

1. Scotties are hunters by nature -
we are rarely allowed to be off-leash.

2. AKC recognizes 6 different colours of Scotties -
as you can tell by looking at us -
Wheaten is quite a range.

3. Scotties are very inquisitive and will stop at nothing
if they see something that interest them.

4. Scotties are famous for ARRROOOing.
Not all Scotties do it -
but we can get quite the chorus going
when we get started.

5. The "Scottie look" is a haircut-
if we weren't groomed fairly often -
we'd be all bushy.
Mom works hard to keep us smooth
and unmatted.

6. When we are born we have a
perfect shaped carrot tail.
For the rest of our life,
to maintain that look,
the hair on our tails has to be trimmed -
otherwise we'd have a flag on it
like a Golden Retriever
or an Irish Setter.

7. Scotties are fiercely loyal
to their people
and their nickname is
"The Diehard".

Have a Terrific Thursday
and please feel free to take the award
if you are here and reading our blog -
we think you all deserve it.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

We can't be off leash either, but it has nothing to do with being hunters:)

The Scotties we've known have been tough, opinionated and stubborn little guys. I'm sure you're not any of those things, right?

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Hi Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi, Bella sent me over to do paw shake with you.
I like your true color post, the first picture of the cream sails look so relaxing.
Would you like to be my friend?

Jazzi said...

Cool cream you guys!!

You forgot that Scotties are somewhat sneaky, stubborn, we have our own thoughts and plans, but we we are just so darn loveable and adorable that people love us BOL


Penny and Patches said...
