Catching up...

Good morning all! I have been away for a while, as mom has been working away all summer long. I have a lot of catching up to do. Well, mom got to go to FL for two weeks because she had to travel with work. She missed us terribly and we did, too. We had some nice time to bond with dad, though. We got to talk to mom over the speaker phone, but I was totally confused. I could hear her voice, but I couldn't see here. :O( Well, thank goodness that's over and mom is back home with us now.

Mom and dad bought us these really cool new toys made from nylabone. We now have toys that have lasted a whole week and we still haven't distructed them. Thanks to everyone for the advice. Those kongs mom had bought didn't stand a chance. I didn't realize they made toys out of nylabone other than bones, but they actually have a variety of them, and they come in different levels for the normal chewing pups to the really heavy chewers like us.

Meanwhile, mom is covinced that Ebony and I need our own crates. When she arrived from work on Wednesday she saw that Ebony had made a mess in her side of the crate. Well, it appears that Ebony must have sat on her food bowl and it broke off of her crate attachement. She's been trying to convince dad to bring out our other crate so that we each have our own. Right now we're using our 3 door extra large carte with a divider in between, so we each have our own little room. We fit perfectly, but its a little hard to lay down without my tail coming out or my nose sticking out. What do you guys think?

Well anyhow, mom and dad also bought us some new matching reversable rain/winter coats (pink and blue) with matching booties. Dad put the booties on us yesterday and I made them laugh so hard because I kept jumping around like a bronco. I couldn't help it, it felt so weird not to feel my paws touching the ground! Then we got to model our coats but since mom wants us to fit into them once we've completely gown, she bought them a little too big. Today we're going to make a trip to Petsmart to try on another size. Unfortunately, mom left her camera at work, so she couldn't take a picture of how cute we look, so we'll have to do that next weekend.

Mom and dad also bought this new sofabed at Costco for Ebony and I to share. This is me in my famous submissive pose with my ears back.

Here I am in another, what can I say, it was comfy!

Here is Ebony also enjoying our new fancy bed.
So dad thought he was being funny when he took this next picture of me. Can you see the angry look in my eyes? I'm not sure what the point of this picture was, but I was not happy about it.

Here's a nice on of me taking a nap. Oh, yeah and can you tell that I'm using a different collar? I'm actually now wearing my third collar, because I also tore this one up. Don't I look so peaceful? How can a face like this do anything naughty?

Here is Ebony looking as cute as ever. Mom and dad are also thinking about grooming us again, because Ebony's hair seems to be growing a little differently from mine, and with the heat it makes us thirsty really fast when we're outside. Although, mom and dad were thinking about taking us to the Petsmart right by our house, that is until they went yesterday and saw a poor little Westie being groomed so badly. They had shaved all the hair off his body and left his head bushy like lion. Mom said that she would cry if she came and saw we had gotten such a bad hair cut, just like she used to when she was little. Mom said the owner was very upset. Ebony looks so cute, though. Sometimes she looks like a little lion.

Here we are together, just relaxing.

Well, anyway, I hope everyone has a good week! Thanks for stopping by!
Obie & Ebony


  1. Hi New Friends,
    You guys are to cute! Glad to hear mom is home. We don't like when our mom leaves. Yuk! It sounds like you were very excited to see her
    Benny & Lily

  2. Wowser...sounds like you got a lot of new pressies...a fantastic snuggle bed, new collar, new toys, new coats and maybe your OWN room. Trust me, you need your own room. Especially if Ebony has all her girlie bits like me. We girlies need our private space.

    SHE bought our raincoats to big on purpose so they'd cover us all the way back. The ones that fit left about 3 inches of our backs showing that got wet. Our are PURPLE. The only color choice. I like mine and Puffers used to like his, until the Mr. laffed at him for wearing a girlie he won't wear it.

    Haircuts. Call around and ask if anyone has experience in Scotty cuts. If they say yes, ask to have the Scotty owner call you for a reference. My first hair cut was a Westie, the lady argue'd with HER (trust me, a loosing battle there) that Scotties weren't white. I'm NOT white, I'm WHEATEN. Second haircut was a SCHNOOZER. Bobbed off beardie. Now I get mostly a Scotty cut, with the exception of the carrot tail...Miss Debbie tries, but hasn't mastered it yet...and the long eyebrow. I always look surprized instead of mysterious.

    I'm glad you are back. Thanks for stopping by by.

    Sniffies all around!

  3. We definitely think that you need your own bedrooms(crates)and you can position them side by side!
    You do look rather comfy on your new sofabeds!
    We're glad you have your mom home again!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  4. We forgot to say that we absolutely LOVE your header picture! It's just adorable!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. Brindle babies do look so sweet with they sleep and can be so naughty when they don't. We also ran into a growth difference with our brindle and black scotties. Pippi's raincoat is red but has a hood. We use a Petsmart groomer BUT she is very talented and know how to make Pippi look her best. We had in the past a horrible Petsmart grooming experience. Get references if you can on yours.

  6. We are sooooo glad to see you are back!!! We have missed you so much.

    Our Mom definitely thinks you should get your own crates because it won't be too much longer before Ebony will start smelling really good to Obie and it will be the longest week of the year trying to keep you separated!!

    We want to invite you to come to our house to get groomed. Mom and Dad would love to have you come down and spend the night or just drive down for the day. If you are cleaned a brushed out, it won't take too long to get you spiffed up!! And Mom will even cook for your peeps. Just let us know - we are available most of the time except Labor Day weekend and the weekend of the Scottish Terrier Dog Show.

    Take care of beautiful little selves.

    Mom, Dad, Aunt Carrleigh and Uncle Java


Lucky I'm naturally handsome...

Lucky I'm naturally handsome...
Mommy says I'm lucky I'm so good looking because I make even Daddy's not-so-professional grooming look cute.


This is me, Obie.
