Scottie Radar

My Mom has Scottie radar.    Yep… your heard it here first.
If there is a scottie 'anything' in a store… she will find it.   Even if she isn't look'n for it.   It's her only magical power.   She can just "sense it".  Whatever dat means.
Pretty disturbing… huh?

Well… it happened again.   This past weekend when she was out shopping with Aunty D, her scottie radar kicked in and she found something.
What did you find dis time, Mom?
Cool… it's a metal sign dat we can hang on my wall. 

Sweeeeeeeeet!     But… ya know… there is something very familiar about dis sign.   Do you see what I mean?
Hummmmmm….. I think I know these two.
That scottie can't be me cuz it looks older (I mean.. more mature) dan me.
Not Me.

Who is dat Scottie?

Kyla posing nakkid?
Dougall (no… he's too young, like me).
Maybe it's Susie.
Or.. Sidebites.

And dat other one…. I could swear, dat I've seen him/her before.   Is it Puddles?   Roxy?  Frankie?   Ernie?   I just don't know.   I think it may be a girl.

Who are you guys?
It's a big mystery.    Do they look familiar to you too?   

Before I have Mom hang it on my wall…. I really wanta know who dey are.   If dis is you on my new sign… please step forward.   If you know who they are… please share.

Maybe I need to call in the Blogville FBI (Feline Bureau of Investigation).


Pees.    I NEED your Vote so I can be on the dog calendar to raise money for Benny. Head on over to and vote for me (Ranger - the Adventures of a Ranger). Voting is at the bottom of their blog post. Here's the photo we entered.

Woohoo….. you can vote once a day all this week!   Spread the word.

She's is visiting my beach from Fayetteville, NC

S-T-E-L-L-A !!!!!

What can I say…. all the beach babes have to hots for me.

It must be all that sand in my fur.   It gives me dat rugged macho look. 

Yep… that must be it.
I hope you had a super fun weekend.   Happy Monday!

Flashback Friday - Back to School

All the kids go back to school on Monday.    Sigh…. I like to watch them ride bikes and skateboard around the hood.    Today, I thought dat I'd share one of my off-to-school pics.

Dis was Me, on my front porch, waiting to go to my 1st class at puppy school.
Like my treat bag?  
Mom got it for me at the Red Dog Saloon in Juneau, Alaska

I was 5 months old and the youngest puppy in the class.   I learned to socialize, walk on a lease, and some other action words (Sit, Down, Come (which I only do when I wanta), and Wait).   I really liked school cuz I gots lots of TREATS!

I 'Like' Off the Leash Daily Cartons on Facebook.
They always make Mom laugh and I love to hear her laugh.

Bad Poetry Day

Today is Bad Poetry Day and my buddies Oz and Ku (great poets in their own right) are holding a contest for the Badest poem.

There are prizes and everything!!!!

Dis is my poem.
Dat's What Scotties Do

How are you today Squirrel,
i race to the trees to search you out,
your tail makes me barkin crazy,
you are truly a pest,
i love to chase you Squirrel
Cos I'm a Scottie; and dat's what we do

How are you today Kong,
i chomp on your rubbery body,
your red skin makes me slobber,
you are a wobbly mess,
i love to play fetch with you and Aunty
Cos I'm a Scottie; and dat's what we do

How are you today Mollie,
i carry your bra around in my mouth,
your blonde fur makes my heart flutter,
you are truly a flirt,
i love to wear your frilly knickers on my head
Cos I'm a Scottie; and dat's what we do

Now make sure you 'LIKE' my Bad Poem.  I need lots of 'likes' cuz I'm playin catch-up since I entered on the very last day.   Have fun hopping to all the "no-talents poets" out there in blogville and reading their Bad Poems.    They are all really Bad and Funny.


National Thrift Store day

National Thrift Shopping Day

Today, Jazzi, is hosting an event to celebrate National Thrift Shopping Day.   Mom has to run down to the Thrift Store, 2nd hand store or even a garage sale and buy ME something really snazzy.    Isn't dis a great?!   Mom has to buy me a pressie.   Jazzi is sooooooooo smart to come up with dis one.

A mini-Me with wheels?
He doesn't look a thing like me?
I think his tail is broken.
Crummy toy.
Next time I'm gonna insist that I to go wiff her.  I think SHE really bought this crummy toy for herself and not for me.   After we did the photo opt thingy, SHE put it up on a shelf.    Go figure-ine.

Backside Modeling

I knew this postie title would get you over here.  hehehe

Last week, lots of you commented on da quilt dat Aunty D made and dat I was sitting on.   Well, dat was the back of the quilt.

Yep….  you heard it here first… I am a backside quilt model.
Dis is backside quilt modeling at it finest.

So, you are probably wondering what da front looks like?   Well here it is.
Dis is the front side of the baby quilt.
Ok, I get it….  she didn't want my cuteness to outshine the baby giraffe.

Some of you also asked if it was my quilt.  It is not a quilt for me but dat's ok.  It's for a baby boy peep.  I already have my own scottie quilt/blankie dat Mom made for me.  Correction…. I gots me multiple scottie quilts.   Some are for everyday and some are holiday Scottie blankies/quilts.   If you wanta see more of Mom's or Aunty D's quilts, you should check out their quilting blog ==>
