View Full Version : I have a Scottie Dog...

16th July 2009, 01:42 PM
...but just for a few days. You may recall I used to dog sit Dolly before Dylan was diagnosed. She was very young and and lively. Dylan was submissive with her and he spend most of his time on his back while Dolly chewed his legs, he loved it. I decided not to look after her as I didn't want him on his back so much, he has a syrinx in his lower back. Well she is 2 now, has calmed down and I know I am the only person her owner trusts 100% to look after her so I offered again. Dolly has really calmed down and they are playing nicely and Dolly is reassuring Dylan by showing her belly. Pictures to follow. But for now, here is Dolly from last time.

Absolutely Di,he seems to be trying to decide if he should lie on it or eat it!!:D:D:D,but whatever it is it shouldn't be on his sofa!
I had to look twice at the cushion behind him, for a moment I thought his tail was looking a bit strange.Need to go to Specsavers Sins:rolleyes:

We just went for a walk, I asked the girl next door to come with us and hold Dolly's lead. I told her to be firm and not let her pull and she walked like an angel, unlike Dylan. If only I practiced what I preached!

Looks like you've a busy few days ahead!:)
Dylans expression in the photo is priceless, I think you should have a caption competion with that one. I would put " I don't know what it is, but it better not plan on staying there!":D

Hi likes her, she LOVES him! :rolleyes: They are no work at all. I've looked after 21 dogs before, including 4 new pups, now that was hard work! Funny though, my theory was that two dogs meant playing more and running around but they are just lying around.

Dylans such a sweetie. He always looks sooo adorable.

I have said this before, but I think Dylan is one of the most beautiful cavs I have ever seen! He has the 2nd sweetest face I have ever seen. (of course my Bella is 1st! ;)) I love to see pics of him!

Thanks everyone :D I grabbed my camera this morning to take a photo of how nicely they eat breakfast together but I have to charge the batteries. They eat their own food then swap to lick each others empty bowl, neither is possessive. Dolly is asleep by my feet and Dylan is wondering round wondering what to do. I'll be taking photos with my phone for Dolly's owner and sending one each day. I've decided to give the girl next door some of the money as most probably she will help me walk them each day.

I would keep her if anything happened to her owners but we went to a sports day last weekend that my son organized and she bit a few dogs. She's always been different with Dylan.

My granddad's scottie is the same way. Extremely nice and friendly with Anna or my labs, but like to lash out at other dogs. I hope everything goes well. I bet Dylan is having a Ball with a friend to play with 24/7 and it is even better that they are so nice together.:pi*no:

You'd think so wouldn't you but...let me just take a photo...they sleep a LOT!

Here they are eating nicely. When they finish, they swap and lick each others bowls!

Some more pictures from last week.
Dolly's party piece, she sits back on her bottom when you say up. It looks so cute.

Dolly was so itchy I showered her in evening primrose oil shampoo.

On the last evening, Dylan finally let Dolly cuddle up.

27th July 2009, 05:48 PM
Aaaawww, that last picture is so adorable! I think Dylan enjoyed having her there! :l*v:

I felt a bit sorry for him as she loves to cuddle me and though he doesn't cuddle much, he looked a bit sulky when she was cuddling me. He never made a fuss and he let her play with his toys but really sulked when she got his favourite toy.

Love the one of them cuddled together, and the way that Dyan is looking at Dolly in the bath, much as to say " what are you doing in there" so sweet.:)
