Savvy Scottie Magazine


I imagine that most of us know that the great Joseph Harvill, publisher, editor, owner of “The Great Scots Magazine” is set to retire. For those of us who have subscribed for more years than we can remember to this wonderful Magazine, this is a grrrreat loss. However, we wish Joseph all the very best for his “retirement” though I’m sure he will be keeping a close eye on what still goes on the the Scottie World. A new Magazine is about to be published though, with the blessing of Joseph, in early 2015. It’s called “Savvy Scottie Magazine” and they are already taking subscriptions.

Awareness Bracelets


Scottish Terrier Health Network are halfway through their Awareness Month, having celebrated the Awareness Day on 11th July. Photos are still coming in, so we’ll get around to sharing those shortly. These handmade Awareness Bracelets are made using the tartan selected for Scottie Health – which is Pride of Bannockburn Tartan. The silver beads are silver plated so you’ll need a silver cloth on hand to keep them nice and shiny. Each bracelet is slightly different due to the handmade nature. Awareness Bracelets £8.00 each. A flat rate postage to USA of £3.80 (insurance covers you for 2 bracelets) and standard UK postage charges apply. If anyone is interested in purchasing, please get in touch.

Scottie Pup and Training?

I’d forgotten just how tiring it can be trying to keep a 13 week scottie puppy entertained. There’s just so much for them to learn – all in one go – but you don’t want to bombard them with too much “training” just in case they rebel. I’m trying to instil into Fabianne’s training regime all the stuff Cesar Milan advoates …. “Exercise, Discipline, Affection” and “Rules Boundaries, Limitations”.

The weekend is looming and so I might be able to get Fabi out on…
