No matter how cute a puppy is
and we think that Celti
is a real cutie,
there soon comes a time
when they must learn things
that we big dogs take for granted.

Too soon all Scotties must learn
that their people pleasing profile
is a haircut -
otherwise we'd all just look like
busy little warthogs!!
See how fast Celti's hair
has grown above her ear.

 Learning to stand
in a noose
is always something
that a puppy wants to fight.

 It's nice to be up high
where you can look around
and see everything.

 But Mom keeps trying to get her
to "stack" and "sit still".
She'll soon get it.

Before we know it,
she'll be as patient as Piper,
who rarely even
needs a noose anymore.

Lilly, Piper, Celti

there is some things a girl just has to tolerate to look pretty

Funny, our craziest ones are the ones who are good on the grooming table, while some of the better behaved dogs get bored and start squirming.

We don't have the noose. We just learned to stand we can have a treat.

Maggie is off getting her hair done as we speak. I have been told that she's a good girl. That is except for her feet. Scottie thing I've been told!

You'll get there, Celti - just a little bit more time. You're sure a beauty!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Yeap, this is something that is hard to get. Me, no noose, I stand like a proud girl, Bites needs the noose but never squirms.

Celti will get it with a normal Scottie-Tude.

She is just cute as can be. She'll learn, like you said. I love that fur growing on her ear, it looks so soft.
