"I am so grateful for the time she and I had - 14 years and 7 months!
That's a wonderful long time to make memories! I was blessed to have her from the
moment she came into my life and I am continued to be blessed in her absence...
She lives forever in my heart and mind;
a million beautiful memories she's left behind."
Born May 25, 2004 - RB March 13, 2008
"Callie, our first Scottie, was a beautiful little imp of a dog
with a wicked sense of humour and a huge presence. We will forever miss
her spirit, the aroos and doggy smiles with those pearly white teeth flashing.
She was taken from us tragically and heartbreakingly at such a young age."
"Your Dad, "brother" Sam the Sealyham, and I will never stop loving and
missing you sweet girl."
GUS MACRANKIN OF ELLERBE
12-05-96 - 03-13-08
"Gus was a Scottish Terrier and was so beautiful with a great
personality. To know him was to love him. Gus would run to the den and
pick out a toy for anyone that came to the house. He would go to bed
with us and leave when he thought we were asleep and stay at our door
to make sure we would be safe. Gus had his own way and we would do
what he wanted us to do and we just wouldn’t have it any other way.
Gus was my life and best friend. I felt like I couldn’t live without
him. If dogs aren’t in Heaven, then I want to go where they are.."

"You came to us as an eight week old little bundle of white fur.
You captured our hearts from that very first day and we knew we had been
blessed with a special gift straight from heaven above. There are so many
fond memories and precious aspects of your personality that could fill volumes of books.
You were a comforter to us when we were sick, a listening, attentive ear when we needed to talk,
and always gave love even when we felt unlovable.... all of that and so much more.
You had such an instinct of what was needed at any given time. We will hold all of those
precious memories in our hearts....in that special place that only you can fill.
Sleep well our precious angel.....you have earned your rest. ."

"A gentle giant, my boy, Willy. He endured being fed diet dog food for years to bring
his weight down from 34 pounds to 20.6 pounds throughout the last year. He was a true Scottie
to the very end. He corrected Katie as she tried to take his food and even though he could not
stand he growled and showed his teeth until she left it alone. Yet he was gentle with children
and all who came into contact with him. He even ran away from the soccer ball when Katie would
pass it to him. He was my only dog to have flunked out of obedience school and it was not because
he was not able to pass the tests he just didn't want to.
We will miss you my gentle boy!
Until we meet again."

CH. Greatscott Clear Sky
Almost 14 yrs of age
23 Sept 1994 - 17 April 2008
Sky had a wonderful and long show career with many Group and In Show wins to her credit,
showed herself off by herself,
a mere flick of the
lead took her in the right direction and she was always moving out in front of me with head and tail up.
When she retired from showing into our care she was the boss of the
clan, a look or a wave of her tail always got the clan straight and
into line where she wanted them.
She has left good progeny whose lines continue today with excellent show careers.
A True Lady with Great Dignity and Humour to breath's end.
Rest in Peace darling Sky, Till we meet you again.
Our beloved Sky, we loved you from birth and always will.

Duncan For My Valentine, J.E.
Nov 17 1995 - May 2 2008
"Duncan loved to play..."
"He loved to get the rats at Earthdog, and anyone who ever heard him in
the tunnels would have sworn there was a much bigger dog in there...
He knew where the rats were - if we got on the highway, he'd sleep if
we were going to NJ or WV, but if we turned South on I-81, he perked
up. And if we got off at the Hedgesville WV exit, he'd be sitting up
in the back seat of the truck, getting excited. By the time we took
the final turn onto the road to the Earth Dog trials, he'd be
straining against his Batzi Belt, nose out the window, begging to be
let out to get the rats! This spring, we took him one last time, to
an earthdog practice, and he managed to enjoy the heck out of himself
- a little slower off the mark, but he headed straight for that tunnel
like he was 4 again."
"..... he was my first dog."

"My constant companion for 12 ľ years, Katie O’Clair, crossed
over the Rainbow Bridge on July 16, 2008. She came into
my life as an 8 week old Christmas puppy in 1995. She and
I could just look at each other and know what the other was
thinking. It didn’t take word, a bark, or hand signals."
"Katie was a champion soccer player and would often play
with the neighbor’s Cairn Terrier. She would win though.
When I brought Willy, our wheaton Scottie, into her world
she was two, she didn’t object she just took some of
her toys and dropped them at his feet. He was a Christmas
pup too. They became the best of buddies until his crossing
three months ago."
"Katie was the true Scottish lass until the very end. She had beaten
colon cancer, bladder stones, even Cushings, and in the end she died
of a broken heart. She was losing blood into her chest cavity and it
could not be stopped so….. She told me it was time."
"We will be together again and until then sleep tight my love."
RB - July 24, 2008
"Cassie was the sweetest Scottie I’ve ever had.
She was always so gentle, and extremely caring. Although she wasn’t
crazy about adults, she absolutely adored children, the younger the better.
She’d wiggle at the site of a toddler."
"She was the first Scottie I ever had that aroo’ed, and she did so constantly.
I would talk to her, and she’d respond back every time with a nice, loud arroo.
I will miss that so much. I will also miss her sweetness and gentleness, and,
believe it or not, the snotty attitude she had sometimes. She could always make me laugh."
"I try to take comfort in knowing that she’s with her true love, Denver, again.
My little angel truly is an angel now."
"The Smiling Scotties"
L-R: Haley (RB), Hoagy (RB), Fala(RB), Heather Sue (RB)
October 17, 1998 ~ July 29, 2008
"Haley came to us when she was eleven months old. We went to pick her
up and she was crated in a garage. She was infested with fleas and
had a stick wedged in her mouth. I would have paid every cent I had
to get Haley away from that place and get her to a vet. She was such
a pretty, black Scottie girl to be kept in such a manner. Her
previous owner said she was just too much puppy and she couldn't
have her in the house. We took her immediately to Doc Eastwood and
he removed the stick and dipped her for fleas. That was how her life
began with us. She was a typical Scottie Pup. She was full of
herself and a regular spitfire. She attached herself to our oldest
daughter, Tiffany, right away. It took her a while to warm up to the
rest of us, but she finally came around.
"Haley was our little clown. She was always starting a frap, racing
through the house, or playing with her big ball. She would always
kick her back feet before she nosed that big ball around the yard.
She acted like she had to kick her feet to rev up her engines. She
was the only one of the four Scotties that loved the kiddy pool. We
kept it filled just for her. She wasn't much of a cuddler, but when
she wanted affection she would come and get in your lap. This past
year has been hard on Haley. She missed Heather Sue, Hoagy and Fala
very much. My only solace is knowing she is with them right now,
pain free and at peace. Rest well sweet angel. You will always
live close in our hearts. We love you."

September 2, 1995 - October 6, 2008
"He was the answer to my daughter Ella's prayers and her constant companion --
the love of her life. Where Ella went, Scottish Terrier Argyle went. From upstate
New York, across country to Hawaii--with memorable stops along the way, like the Grand
Canyon. Back to Mainland USA--Kentucky, and finally Florida. Despite a spinal deformity
that left him with a distinctive limp, Argyle had a fighting spirit and stared down cancer
until it finally overtook him at the age of 13. His final resting place is in the
mountains of Schoharie County, New York on the grounds of Ella's parents' home, and
alongside his departed companion, the beloved Fenimore, also a Scottie. All who were
privileged to know Argyle held a special attachment to him. He will live on with
Ella forever, gone, but never forgotten.
Rest in Peace, Argyle."

"She was my companion since I brought her home when she was a tiny kitten.
She has spent every night since then curled up in my arms.
I really don't know how I will get through the night without her."
5/3/96 - 10/20/08
"She made it final today
I gave her all I had, she made her get away
All the love we once shared
Turned to memories today
I left the vets and went straight to the house
Hit my knees and told God how much I hurt
There's nothing left of my heart
Gonna be hard to make a new start
Cause today my world slipped away
I lost the sweet girl that I loved
And tonight I'm alone and so sad
Cause today my world slipped away
All my friends say I'll make it all right
I'll recover and start a new life
But that will be so hard to do
Cause living will be so hard without her
Cause today my world slipped away
Rainbow Bridge called her today
There's not much more to say
Cause today my world slipped away.
Ebonye was the light of my life, the leader of the pack, the heart
dog beyond all heart dogs.
A sweet little spitfire who came to live with us at 6 months of age,
she graced our home with her spirit, her courage, her love and her
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye curling up in the
bed with us at night
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye to teach the
others how to hunt
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye always being
watchful at the window to run any critters that didn't belong out of
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye taking a stroll
in her stroller
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye giving me that
under eye look
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye a-roo-ing and
starting the scottie songs with the others.
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye wagging her tail
so hard her whole butt shook when I came home from work.
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye always wanting to
be near me and not wanting me to be out of her sight
It will never be the same here without Miss Ebonye's insatiable
curiosity about everything
Miss Ebonye, you were, a scottie among scotties, a head above the
others even though you were always smaller than the others. You
were a fiesty little chick from day one and I loved your spirit so
much. Your own Dad's name said it all; Black Magic he was and he
produced a female Black Magic. You were, indeed, Black Magic here
in our home.
We were so very proud of you and you were so charming when you
wanted to be but yet that terriertude shown proudly when you stood
We will miss you so very much, sweet little girl and there will
never be another scottie girl quite like you. Yes we will go on and
yes we know you'll somehow, someway send us another girlie to love
However, the hole that you leave with us will never mend.
We will touch you only in spirit and your hoped for visits to us
when you are at the bridge.
We know you will be excited to see Dundee, Skara Brae, Kerrye Skye,
Smokey, and Winnie; please give them kisses from us.
A love like this in human terms is sometimes beyond comprehension
but know dear sweet baby girl that we loved you the best we knew how
and will always love you until we meet again on that glorious day
when your little scottie legs will send you flying over the meadows
to once again give us those glorious kisses and happy tail wags.
Rest in peace, lovely darling; we will miss you more than words
could ever say and there will never ever be another scottie in our
lives like you..

"Elle was beautiful and she knew it. She loved her grooming
sessions because she knew she would be even more beautiful! She was
a joy on the table and never moved an inch, she stood so perfectly.
She was a very happy Scottie and always thought the party was just for her!
She was our Beauty Queen, our Sweet Pea, our Ellie Bellie and our Missy Girl.
The pain of loosing two Scotties in 4 months is overwhelming.
Elle will now be with Duncan, her best friend."

HUCKSTEP'S KAITLYN TODT

"Our beloved Katie, "The Queen of All", joined her sisters PittyPat
and Macy and brothers McKenzie and Brimley at the Rainbow Bridge this morning.
It seems like yesterday we brought our "Purple Scot" home.
We had been searching for a little girl Scottie but found none.
The Scottie email lists were really growing in 1997.
We placed a Scottie wanted message on the email lists.
Some one told someone about a litter in Maryland. So off we drove.
Katie was born to Sophie and Sparky, CH Fairoak's Damn Yankee.
First born, she was a feisty girl who latched on to us in the puppy box.
Her breeders wanted to keep her another two weeks but we convinced them
we were responsible Scottie lovers. We tried to be responsible parents
by placing her in a crate to come home. That lasted two exits. The rest
of the ride was in her Mom's arms. The rest of her life, Katie was Queen of All.
She graduated from obedience school. She learned to sit, down and stay.
The down and stay soon were forgotten. But for a treat she did this all in
rapid succession followed by a "big speak".
Katie was a great talker. She got that from her sire Sparky. She finished
many meals by rubbing her whiskers on the floor, loudly moaning/growling her
satisfaction, and digging at the floor pushing herself and around "digging to
China". She was very vocal and expected her commands to be followed in all
She was also a prissy Scottie. She prissed her way down the street with
her funny butt wiggle. She hated getting her feet wet. Since she was young,
her eyebrows had grown past her nose. When a groomer once cut them short,
she was horrified when her Daddy called her naked and hid. She hated the
word from then on.
Katie was a spokes dog for Wee Beasties Scottie Rescue. She was a sister
for many Scotties who came through as fosters. She claimed rescue PittyPat
as her baby, even though PittyPat was much older. She participated in their
Colonial Christmas parade each year starting in 1997. One year Mom tried to
dress her up with antlers. She wore them hanging down around her neck for most
of the parade. After that she proudly wore her kilt or plaid party dress.
She participated for many years in the Norfolk St. Patrick's parade with
the Colonial Terrier Club. She loved socializing with the other terriers on
fun days. She would say hello with her tail up wagging full speed and then
run around the play area.
Katie loved going for walks and traveling. "Go for a ride" would find
her at the door waiting and hurrying us on. Her favorite ride was to Griffins
Beach on the Chesapeake Bay in Poquoson VA. She could smell the salt air blocks
One of her favorite things was walking with Aunt Cathy on Griffins Beach
looking for crabs and minnows in the tidal pools. She would dive in, snorkeling
after them. She managed to catch a few. She was not afraid of any crab that
Aunt Cathy would catch for her, severing their claws and then pawing them to
pieces or flinging around the beach.
This year she attended Fala Day in Warm Springs GA. She won honorable
mention in her purple velvet dress and pearls and silver and pearl tiara as
"Katie, Queen of All". She also visited the Fala Memorial in DC and made
many trips to Missouri.
Our Purple Scot also loved her "fluffies", her fleece sleeping beds.
She had several in each room to rest in. But night time found her sleeping
on Mom's feet.
Thank you Cindy Altman for bringing Katie into our lives. Thank you
Denbigh Animal Hospital, especially Dr. Tom and Dr. Cork, for loving and
caring for Katie from the beginning to the end.
Her leaving is breaking the hearts of her Mom Roxanne, Daddy Jim,
brother Truman and Aunts Vicki, Cathy and Marty.
Katie you are the reason for so many wonderful things.....
If tears could build a stairway,
And memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to Heaven
To bring you home again.
Roxanne Huckstep and Jim Todt
