Today, we got to play ball.
Mom doesn't have the nerve to take us
all out at once and let us off leash -
she's afraid we might come visit you
or otherwise go to parts unknown.

Piper and Lilly
are probably the best ball players we have
in our clan -
Carrleigh has no interest in the ball
and Ruairi is more interested in
the treats Mom might have
in her pocket -
in other words,
he's a "suck-up".
So he's always too close to Mom
to get a real good photo.

Don't you just love seeing
a black dog against the green grass -
Lilly was more that happy to play ball
with Mom.

This is how Mom
always thought of Scotties
when she was a little girl -
chasing a ball and being able
to see the "white" of their eye.

Pretty soon Lilly let Mom know
that she'd had enough fun
and that it's time to go in the house
where it is cool.

And time to take care of
Our Sweet Babes.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh, Ruairi

Looks like you all had a fun playtime there.
Did you knowGail tells me that when she was a girl the only Scottie she knew, James, belonged to the headmistress of her school, Miss Letitia Louise Lewenz? James used to sit in Miss Lewenz's office all day, but the girls would offer to take him for a walk in the park (the Arboretum) behind the school at lunchtime. This was a popular option for girls who planned assignments with the boys from the school across the road!
I think you guys have much more fun that James ever did.

What fun to get outside for a romp! And yes, the black dogs always look great against that green backdrop. We were worried we weren't going to get a peek at the Sweet Babes today, but you came through.

Have a great weekend.

Lilly & Piper sure had fun. The babes are just so sweet and really do look like Scotties now. The change in 5 weeks is amazing.

Love to all,
Linda & Abby

BALL, now I'll play that game any day. We might have short legs, but that does not stop us from running like the wind for a fly ball.
