Catching Up with Mr. K
After a month of being ousted from the spotlight by darling Heather, Mr. K insisted that this week's one-on-one time be all his. As always, be prepared for a little Scottie-tude, my friends. I'm afraid nothing will subdue this boy's spirited nature...except for a few belly rubs, of course.
Hello again, Mr. K. It's been a while since we've sat down for a chat.
Yeah, tell me about it. Heather's been stealing all the attention lately. You think that's because she's a girl? Or, do you think she's just that good at winning people over? Think about it, Mom - I'm just as cute, you know. Plus, I do A LOT of funny things to make everyone laugh.
You certainly do and I'm sure you have just as many fans. But, let's not dwell on that. What would you like to talk about?
My new friends Syd and Oz.
What about them?
They're the best! And they've got a great home with a backyard full of things to explore. We could have stayed out there having all sorts of adventures forever. I don't know why everyone laughed at me when I went upstairs with Syd and Oz for bedtime. I was only trying to buy us more time. Plus, we're good friends now. Aren't we supposed to do everything together? Besides, I'm pretty sure they didn't want us to leave, either. Why'd we have to go, Mom?
It was time for dinner. Would you rather have stayed than have had a yummy dinner?
Heavens, no. Food is always good. But Syd and Oz have food...and toys. And a yard. And lots of room to run zoomies. Oh yeah, and their Scottie Mom and Dad are pretty cool, too.
That's true. I just figured you would want another opportunity to steal Scottie Dad's spot on the bed while he's away again.
Oh. Good thinking! Yes, now I understand why we had to leave. Anything for some extra time on the hooman bed! Mom, aren't you afraid Scottie Dad is going to catch on?
I don't know what you mean. Catch on to what?
Ohhh, I get it. We're playing it cool. I can do that. After all, I bet he thinks these conversations are pretend, doesn't he? Wink, wink. Silly Scottie Dad. Man, he really missed out yesterday, didn't he? I bet he would have laughed so hard when he saw me dive right into the little pond Syd and Oz have. That water was so refreshing! I didn't realize there were some sleeping fish there, though - hope I didn't scare them too bad....come to think of it, Scottie Dad missed the last time I jumped in the water as well. Man! He'll never be able to watch me show of my Scottie skills.
Ohh, I think he's seen some of your skills already, little one. Tell me, now that you've made new Scottie friends, what's in store for the future?
Well, I think we should start by attending Fala Day in November. I hear lots more Scotties will be there and I'm anxious to meet them and see if they like me as much as Syd and Oz did. Then, I think you, me, Heather and Scottie Dad ought to take a vacation. Maybe to Savannah. Or, better yet, perhaps we can go check out Asheville the next time we visit Scottie Grandmadre. There's so much more to the world we have yet to see! And I'm hoping we'll uncover more Scotties like me along the way. Can you believe all the Scotties we've met through Project: International Scottie Love? I'd like to go out west and meet Pippen and Jacque in Portland, Oregon. Maybe they can show me why their hometown comes so highly recommended for hoomans with dogs. We could make a Scottie road trip out of it!
Maybe some day, Mr. K - speaking of which, are you sticking with Scotland for the Project: International Scottie Love win?
Of course. I wouldn't want it any other way. Although, they have a lot of catching up to do with South Africa and Peru. My paw's still on one of the southern states to take the Stateside Scotties win as well.
Alright. I guess we'll just have to see how it plays out. Any last words before we join Miss Heather and turn in for the night?
Yes. First, thank you for allowing me back in the spotlight. It's been very fun and I hope to have another opportunity soon. Dear Scottie friends and fans - that's where I need your help. Right now, Heather still has a few questions lined up for her next interview. Mom says if I get more than five questions this time that I can have the Scottie spotlight again next weekend since I've been out of the spotlight so long. So, ask away and have a good night!
