Writing isn't just a hobby of mine. I'm in the business of telling stories. It's what I do professionally and at leisure (when time and the Scottie dogs allow). A little over a year ago, we announced a major life event: Scottie Mom was taking on a new job...one that would take my career to a new level and sadly, one that would take me far away from Heather & Mr. K every day. (We even had to hire a dog walker - our friend the Shih Tzu Mom - to help out during the week.) After a year of commuting approximately an hour and a half each way to get to this new job and back, we couldn't be more excited to announce yet another life event: Scottie Mom has decided to come home.
A job much closer to The Scottie House presented and though we had been contemplating a cross-country move to California for another opportunity at the time, we decided to stay put in Atlanta. How could we move with our niece, a future Scottie Mom for sure, on the way? Just like that, the long commutes were gone. I learned soon after the old Scottie Mobile quit running that I now work only 1,500 steps away from our front door. Also gone are Mr. K's not-so-silent protests and the stink eyes I used to get from Heather & Mr. K alike when I would reenter the house so late at night. And it feels so good that we can finally say - to quote the lovely Adele - hello from the other side.
We've been writing this blog for nearly four years now. When we first introduced them, Heather & Mr. K were 7 and 5 years old respectively. That's four years' worth of laughter, tales of adventure and helping fellow rescue dogs find homes. I suspect there will be even more laughter and inevitably, some tears to come as Heather & Mr. K enter into their golden years. Through the Scottie Mom community, we've shared much of their journeys in life together. And I can't help but wonder if after all these years, you'd like to meet? You know, to go over everything we love about Scottish Terriers!
