"He was the only Piranha Puppy I’ve ever owned – and until he was about 4 months old we worked diligently to teach him OUCH! and ‘Tiny Bites’ – he matured into a sweet, stately ‘Elder Gentleman’ by the time he was about 8, tolerated the cats, and soaked up the sun from the back deck or the arm of the sofa even in July."

My gratitude to his breeders Charla Hill and Lisa Hills for the opportunity to love him. My gratitude to the judges that awarded him to make #5 All Breed Scottish Terriers in 2009.

" She truly had to have been the sweetest Scottie ever. She never met a dog or a person she didn't like. Barley is a bit lost as he is now the only Scot in the house. It's been a huge amount of time since there has been only one Scot in residence here. I think we're both a bit lost.

Lilly, from her Puppyhood days.....


Scottish Terrier

July 12, 2000 - March 29, 2013

"She was 12 years, 8 months and 17 days old. We remember so well when Nanette McCarthy brought her to us from Canada; she was 8 weeks old. We were thrilled and loved her from the first moment we saw her. She was the very best dog anyone could wish for and we already miss her desperately."

Fran and Gary Sanden


Scottish Terrier

RB 4-5-13

"She was the last of the original Brice Bunch. 15yrs 7mos old They are all together again, Daddy Pippin, Momma Poppy, Sister CeCe, Brother Wheatly and Lily."

"She loved everyone, but, she was always Greg's sweetie and he, hers. As a puppy she loved to crawl up inside his shirt when he would lay on the couch watching tv. The only times in her life that she growled was when she was on his lap and any of the other dogs would try to push her off. He was her's and her's alone. She was patient and kind, never bullied anyone. I called her our "Wallflower" because she would hang back and watch rather than get into any fray. She danced for her dinner, a treat, or to go in the car. She loved a hidey hole, briar patches, anywhere she could squeeze into. Earthdog probably would have been her true calling, but we just never got around to it....."

"Her last gesture in this world was to lift up her head and nuzzle in deeply in his chest, with her last breath she thanked him for loving her enough to let her go.
They never live long enough....."

Ch Byrnecrest's Danny Boy


Welsh Corgi

1-18-96 - 4-17-13

"1 day short of 17 1/4 years old.
Please don't cry for me, Danny would tell you.
He had a great life, came to me at 5 months old, untrained, wobbly back legs (thought they'd never work correctly), leash broken (NOT), blowing coat everywhere, but the best top-line of any Corgi around. He was my second champion, 1st Corgi Ch.

He quickly became a mama's dog, stuck to me like glue, slept at whatever door I exited out of till my return. Anytime I left home for more than a day, Jim had to give him a T-shirt with my scent before he would settle down and sleep. He was a true Corgi, herded the Bouviers around the house, barked at any strangers or other dogs on the street.

At home, Danny was always at my feet, sleeping in the bed back against my legs,loved his ears, face and back rubbed. Got his AKC Championship, CGC title, not interested in herding or Obedience. Loved all his brothers & sister, we make them think they are related, and being an ambassador for his breed at the "Meet the Breed" events.
He was loved by all and will be missed every day,
more than I can express..."

"I've lost another special needs Scottie who I loved dearly...When you loose a special needs Scottie that you loved so much, it just tears you apart. At least now I know he is healthy and running around the Rainbow Bridge with my Charlie Cartboy. I've lost two special needs Scotties this year.
This really hurts."

"Sissy, my beautiful little rescue Scottie, crossed the rainbow bridge last Saturday. She lived with us for almost 5 years and we didn't know her exact age but it was estimated as eight years when we got her. That made her about 13. She was the sweetest Scottie you could ever imagine; never once growling or snipping.
Goodbye my little one. :( "

CH Destiny's E Equals MC Squared


Scottish Terrier

9/11/99 - 6/19/13

"Champion, Registered Therapy Dog, Canine Good Citizen, and all-around stand up gal :). Mother of 4 in 2003 by CH Bardriaan's Choir Boy, who recently passed at 14 1/2."

"I had aspirations to get obedience titles on her but she did NOT SEE FIT to "down" in public until she was *9*. I kid you not--she would do absolutely everything perfectly but look at me with disdain when I asked for that magic command-- which is how she saw it. At home? She would "down" on a dime and stay there for 30 min, 3 min, 12 min--it didn't matter, she stayed. She was excellent at making me look like a fool, as all good scotties are apt to do."

"One of her favorite activities until a few years ago was tetherball with the rest of the gang, and "hose baths" (i.e. SQUIRT ME IN THE FACE!!)."

"Her whole life, however, her favorite sport was OLYMPIC CHAMPIONSHIP EATING. Shrimp with cocktail sauce. Lobster. Dill pickles (nearly every day). No peasant tastes for this girl.. :)."

"She lived every day with quality; although diagnosed with TCC bladder cancer at 12 1/2, and it inevitably aged her more quickly, she was winding down at almost 14."

"She never stopped eating and her condition was good; she went with dignity and never had a truly bad day in her life. It is my gift to her to not let her suffer, we should all have that for ourselves!"

"Liah, I love you and miss you."

Keipats Bedazzled


Scottish Terrier

RB August 8, 2013

"I’ve been telling her for a month now, I’d do anything to take the burden of her pain from her. I got my chance today. She’s not hurting anymore. We shared some beautiful moments on the travel here - I got to see her hunting in grassy meadows, yelling at people, cyclists & motorcycles outside the car, sticking her head out the window at the levee, obnoxious barking at other dogs at hotels. In between all of this, when she rested, you could just tell it wasn’t a comfortable rest. When you looked in her eyes, they looked dark. I wanted to, but didn’t hold her in my lap - it was painful for her to be handled and the catheter was in her good front leg. So, I sat on the floor with her on the couch - we were at face level. The whole time, Nikko & Jolie, played, wrestled, growled, snipped at each other, bounced into my legs, the vet, ... they said it was okay, if okay with me. Yes. I wanted “busy fun” to be Phoebe’s last sight; I had my hands & face on her, she never shook or trembled, she just rested, then slipped away from me. I would like to thank every single one of you, my friends out there, who held my girl in your thoughts, held her as special, sent such loving thoughts and words. I still hadn’t finished thanking everyone who did the same in late June upon her diagnosis. Some of you all, my friends, have met and know Phoebe, some know her like family, some have or have had, some of her “blood” family, and some of you have never met Phoebe or me, and yet you have poured out so many well wishes and so much love. Thank you."

William Murdoch

Scottish Terrier

Aug 2005 - Oct 7, 2013

"Our beloved little William Murdoch had to give up his battle today the cancer won ,his little body had had enough. William Murdoch came to us 3YRS ago in Aug. He bonded with the Golden One HMB you never saw one without the other ,they loved laundry day they would follow me to the lower level and run laps in the family room ,now DH had two heads into all his yard work and repairs WM was coming into his own but what to call him we couldn't find a name that suited him ."

"We were watching Murdoch Mysteries and the little boy looked at me with big black liquid eyes( just like the star of the show has ). So the little Scot became William Murdoch now I had a PC Hamish MacBeth(I found this show after HMB was named ) and a Detective.William Murdoch,seemed right the artist who did his caricature when she heard his name drew him as Detective William Murdoch we treasure this as we never really had a decent picture of him only one KD kindly photo shopped for us."

"WM was diagnosed in April ,he never looked back from his first Chemo we thought he would prove them wrong the way Duke has with his TCC WM was a happy little boy till last week ,he had his treatment but his body didn't respond to it the nodes didn't shrink,his little body was taken over so we had to let him go this was so hard on DH as William really was his Daddy's dog ,he was a needy little boy so he followed me every where till Dad came home."

"WM deserved so much more in his life ,we loved him dearly."

Good Golly Miss Molly


Scottish Terrier


"It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that we had to help Miss Molly over the Bridge today. Her heart was giving out and they advised that it was time. My vet is very good that way because we would hold on for as long as WE could, and need them to tell us when its time, and for the best. This was so hard as she was the "last" of the original knuthouse gang, won oldest Scotty at Fala Day the last 2 years, and Bill's girl (like Ceilidh was mine). She attended the first Gathering of the Clan from Great Scots Magazine, in Tennessee, and that weekend we got to meet Ceilidh for the first time. Ginger used her for a demonstration and Donna McDonald did her first groom that weeked. She was just 4 months old and the only puppy there. Whenever we played the video of that weekend, she remembered all the "fawning" made over her and she looked around for her "subjects". Life just sucks some times, so ya'll hold on tight to your babies tonight.."

Charthill Love Letter JE "Cara"

Scottish Terrier

4/8/99 - 10/26/13

"Over 14 years ago our family traveled to SC and came home with a little black brindle puppy. She soon became Cara "Babe" (to go with Aggie's "Boss" and Duncan's "Boy"). Her first dog show was the day she turned 6 months - at Montgomery Sweeps, followed 2 days later at Mudgomery. She moved like a dream, but because of her ear infections as a pup, she backed up from the judges on the table. After she had her first litter, she retired from the conformation ring. When it was her turn to lead the pack, she was much more easy going than Aggie had been. She didn't take any guff, but she didn't bother the others unless they bothered her first. After her second litter, she was introduced to Earthdog, and was able to earn her Junior title. Her first puppy, Evan - who would be her clone if he had a milk chin, was a college graduation gift to my daughter. He stayed with her (and later also her husband) at night, but came here for doggy day care while they worked. When the Air Force transferred my son-in-law to CA, we sent Cara along to keep Evan company. They moved back east 3 years ago, and we were able to see more of them, most recently about 3 weeks ago. Since then, she began to seriously slow down and lose her appetite. She died peacefully at home overnight. Her legacy continues, both with Evan, and her 2 daughters, 2 grand daughters, and great granddaughter who live with us. We'll miss you, Babe. You'll always have a place in our hearts." "

She was my first Scottie...and man did we get hooked........so today....we will hold and love her and gently let her go.......and a piece of each of our hearts will be gone forever."

She joined my clan on Labor Day having adopted her from St Louis Scottie rescue (for whom I also foster/coordinate). She walked out of the car and right into a group of 8 scotties and said "I'm old and I'm not puttin' up with any crap!" . And that's the way it has been ever since. Today she went to the Bridge with dignity.
I will see you again my love."

"Today the Grandest, most magnificent Scot left us,he fought TCC for 43 Months, a valiant warrior is gone. RIP Duke, you sure gave it hell."


If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.

You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes,
please, let me go.

Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.

Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;

We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
