And Now He's Three.....

The Westminster Kennel Club says that the "Scottish Terrier's character and personality reflect the bleak and lonely moors of his origin.
Life to him is serious, to be met with dignity, reserve and stout heart. 
He is by nature aloof, but to the accepted few friends and family his devotion is deep and lifelong. 
A secure place in his home, understanding and companionship are essential to his happiness. 
The description continues by saying:  "In spite of his independent spirit, his strong desire for approval will win compliance with your wishes where harsh words and punishment will fail." 
To those who appreciate his unique character, the Scottish Terrier is a friend and companion, second to none."

I think the Westminster Kennel Club has perfectly described our "unique character," Todd, who turns 3 years old today.  Happy Birthday Todd....

  14. Oh, my goodness, is anyone amazed that Todd is already 3! it just doesn't seem possible that he has graced his presence for nearly 3 years at golden pines. I think my very favorite pictures of him is with his scarf wrapped around his neck, looking stoically into the wind.
    He is a love and we are so glad we get to enjoy him along with his family.
    Happy Birthday, Todd!

  45. KIM,
    Happy BIRTHDAY TO YOU TODD!!
    He looks so happy and just smiling at the camera. I think Todd would be great in a teeth whitening ad for dogs. His teeth are beautiful.
    You certainly have yourself one sweet Scottish Terrier.
    I think the Birthday Dog Bone is so sweet.
    Have a great time in Washington. I have seen some pictures of the cherry blossoms and can't wait to see yours.
