A Rocky Creek Scottie Reunion

On Saturday, the day of the Rocky Creek Scottie reunion began with rain in our direction.
Todd wanted to be his best, so he rested up during the nearly 5 hour drive. 
The closer we got to Rocky Creek Farm, blue skies and lots of sunshine started to appear.
~Todd's birthplace, Rocky Creek Farm~
It really was a good day with great food and old and new friends
~Todd catching up with family~
And of course there was Todd's 4 legged family.
Below is a photo of his brother Arlo.  Arlo is actually the puppy I chose before Todd.  But Lynn (breeder) had other ideas and she picked Todd for us instead.  There is no doubt that it worked out like it should have!
Todd did take a break to try and make new friends with the Rocky Creek cattle.  They didn't want to be friends. 
Along with us for this trip was Charlie. He handled the day pretty well.  But he did need a break a few times because he didn't do so well with a couple of the more rambunctious Scotties who knew Charlie wasn't exactly related.   
All too soon the reunion was over, and it was time to leave. I think the fun wore Todd out -- Is that possible?
At the hotel there was no doubt Charlie was really worn out from the days events.
On Sunday we were all recharged, and left early to get home. Todd was ready to help navigate! 
This morning it's back to work for me, but the echoes of the reunion are still fresh in my mind.  If you'd like to know what a Scottie Reunion sounds like, play the video below. 
 Enjoy your Monday everyone!!


  1. Kyla had no idea where she was born except that it was near Guadalajara. You know about rescues.

  2. Hi Kim, what a wonderful time, love the pictures. Great reunion, Blessings Francine.

  3. Played the video - that woke up my lazy dogs! Didn't Todd and Charlie have a great time? Charlie looks beat. Did Todd remember any of his family?

  4. Hello, sounds like a fun reunion for you, Todd and his family. I am glad Charlie could tag along for the fun times too. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  19. So glad you had such a good time. I love all the photographs, but most especially Todd looking out at the rain.

  20. LOL!
    Sounds like my house when they all get worked up!
    So glad it turned out to such a nice day.
    I'm sure Todd probably loved it and Charlie surely enjoyed being with you!
    Thanks for sharing!

  21. I think it's lovely that you keep in touch with Todd's breeder and have these reunions. I often wish Sampson had been able to see his brothers and sisters again. He did see his mom once, but didn't seem to remember her. She recently went to the bridge.


Speak--I really enjoy your comments! Thanks for stopping by today!!
