Scottie Love is in the air. Can you feel it? With days left until Valentine's Day, I'm opening the Scottie Love line, encouraging everyone to submit “gotcha” stories of how your pup came into your heart and your home. Tell me all about your puppy love story below in the comments. Share as little or as much as you want about your "gotcha" story! A lucky few will be profiled right here on the blog.
Scottie Love found me by accident. I accompanied a friend to a shelter because she wanted to welcome a dog into her home and can you guess which one of us ended up finding a furry friend to love that day? Hint: not her! I found Mr. K depressed and all alone at the shelter. He wouldn't even make eye contact with me and he looked nothing like a Scottish Terrier. Still, I knew I had to give this sweet boy a forever home. No one deserved to be that unhappy. The rest, my friends, is history.
Fast forward about a year later and into my life came Heather. I was determined to find Mr. K a friend, having moved to a new city and taken a new job that kept me away longer than I would have liked. That's when I spotted a gorgeous wheaten girl in the care of Tennessee Scottish Terrier Rescue. She had been found in a raccoon trap, was missing some teeth and yet, she was perfect in every way. Mr. K and Heather pretty much ignored each other when they met but it didn't take long for them to be bitten by the Scottie Love bug. The two were inseparable until Heather's passing.
When I decided it was time to expand the Scottie Mom family, the crew literally doubled in size overnight when a bonded pair came home. Once again, the Scotties ignored each other at first, but it was clear Nibbles had decided she and her brother Pudley were exactly where they needed to be when she hopped into the Scottie Mobile without invitation and sat there patiently waiting to be chauffeured to their new forever home, where happily ever after they shall live.

Whatever the situation, I'm sure it is a Scottie Love story to remember and I'd love to hear it.
