One of the reasons,
you haven't seen us around the blogs very much
is that we needed grooming so very bad.
Today, Mom had to make a choice -
groom the dogs
or clean the house.

And she chose to gro
om the dogs -
at least until we wear her down.

Look at what a mess Miss Lilly got into -
weeds on her beard

and eyebrows so long
she could barely see under them -
Mom told her she was beginning
to look more like a Skye Terrier
than a Scottie.

Mom trimmed her a bit
with the scissors
before she got her bath.

And now look at her -
she is still the "queen"
Rocky Creek Farm.

Who will be next?
We're hiding out so maybe
Mom won't find the rest of us.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Uh oh! That is what I was SUPPOSED to do today, and here I am reading blogs instead. Maybe tomorrow. Can't have the Rocky Creek Scotties looking all beautiful and our gang still shaggy. Thank you for the incentive ;-)

You look beautiful!!! That last picture is adorable!! Skye you know anyone that has them around this area? Mom has a friend in Floyd that wanted to get one for her mother some time ago but she couldn't find them and mom couldn't either! Lots of love, Holly and mom

She does look awful purty with her new hair cut, but I would hide too!

Guess what? My mom person & I have created a new blog at

We'd love it if you would come over and check it out & become a member. It's a great new place for pet bloggers to find each other, and get an opportunity to be a featured blog!

Well I am in prinpiple against too much fuss and bother over appearances, but I have to say, in this instance, I think it was all worthwhile Lilly!
Toodle pip!

The transformation is very impressive. Much more satisfying than that dumb old housework.

Our Ladybug I looking quite a lot like this little girl. I bath her between trips to the groomer but forgot to make an appointment the last time we were in. Our groomer is very busy and we had to wait at least a month. Starting to get the dreadlock look for sure.
