Hello, It's Me

I thought I knew what it was like to be greeted by a happy Scottie until I learned how (arguably) the happiest Scottie of them all - Pudley - likes to say hello. It started relatively early on after I rescued him and his litter mate Nibbles. He was crazy happy. All the time. And the first couple of days I came home from work, I rushed upstairs wondering what all the commotion was about.


Hello - it's me, Pudley!
As it turned out, Pudley clamors at the doggie gate so that he may be the first to say hello when you get home. He even tries (and, fortunately for me, he fails) to jump the gate. It sounds a bit like someone's playing a host of percussion instruments all at one time. Heather used to make a similar noise as she bat her tail against the gate when I came home - only it was significantly slower and much quieter. Pudley's musical rendition sounds a bit like, "BAM! BAM-BAM-BA-BAM!!"

Once you cross over the threshold, he jumps up and down against your leg again and again making sure you know how excited he is to see you. And when you go to pet him, he drops to the floor so fast and hard, you think it was an accident until he rolls over - paws in the air - and grins as he waits for a belly rub. Once he's had enough, he then moves all four paws up in the air as if he's riding a doggie bicycle while lying upside down. I've never seen anything quite like it but it's awesome.

  1. My MacGregor used to get so excited, he would stand on his back legs and put his front paws up in the air like he was waving. Then he would go in the back hard and run figure 8's as fast as he could. Made me laugh every time.

  2. Sadie Sue runs up to my husband then waits at the corner for him to kiss me & then she takes off to the bedroom where she expects him to follow her for some exclusive "poppy-Sadie Sue time. Only then can he greet the other three pups.

  6. Sometimes we open one eye when SHE comes home. However, after our last visit to the kennel, we nearly ripped HER trousers to ribbons!
