Yard Dogs

Hey, Mommmmmm!
MOM!!! Look at ME! Can Duhgall and I go out to play?It is such a nice day and there are leaves to rake out in the yard....
...and sticks that I can sink my teeth into....
...and, really....I can be of big help to you if you promise to take us outside!
Here....let me help you gather this pile up.
Ok...all gathered...now I can take a rest!
"Fiona,"says Duhgall, "I am sitting here supervising and you are NOT doing your part. Look, there is still a pile there you need to pick up."
"Wait a minute, Fiona, the pile is over here, NOT over there!"

Doogs is thinking to himself that she cannot stay focused on the task at hand.

"Doogie," I say to him....
"What Mom?"
"You are such a good boy and thank you for making sure little sister does her part."
Duhgall likes to be praised! He is such a good big brother to his little sister.....so much in fact that he yells out...
" Fiona! Run!" Little does she know that a giant frog is stalking her for his dinner!!!
Ahhhh....nothing beats a good sleep after a hard day of work!

Enjoy your weekend!

Maybe you will want to get out and play in the dirt, too!

Oh, my goodness! If those eyes don't melt your heart, you haven't got one!!!!! I'm so glad you are having such a good time with little Fi.

St. Patrick's is coming up. Aunty Jean has something special and green for Fiona and the birthday boy Duhgall!

I'm off to do yard work now too.

How adorable!! Looks like Duhgall has a new best friend in Fiona:-)

Teresa said...

Oh be still my heart!! Becky, I am already wanting another Scottie... oh my. She is edible adorable! And that picture of Dughall's "What Mom?" is absolutely outstanding. They are just down right beautiful. Thank you for sharing them both. I love looking at their pictures.

Claudia said...

They are both so cute! And there is nothing cuter than a sleeping puppy!

Jean said...

Becky, if there is anything any sweeter than a puppy I would like to know what it is. You always tell such a great story with your photos. You should write a little doggie book. Duhgall has such an expressive face, and when Fiona was sleeping in the last photo, I couldn't stop smiling and saying oh....... I am so glad you got Miss fiona to keep you and Doogs company. Have a wonderful weekend sweet Becky,
Love and prayers,
Jean in virginia

Gorgeous.

Hi Becky. It is so good to see your little posts up there again. Your sweet little dogs are two of the cutest I have ever seen. Both are so expressive.
Thank you for your precious comment on my blog. You have no idea how much I appreciated it. It was like a close warm hug...

My Shabby Roses said...

Oh Becky, I'm in-love with your little Fiona! I tell you that face is so precious. Aren't puppies wonderful! Duhgall is a pretty handsome fellow too.

Give Fiona and Duhgall a big hug from me!

And a Big Hug to you, my sweet friend!

^..^Corgidogmama said...

Your pics were perfect with the witty dialogue! Very entertaining, and right on the money...as far as doggies go! What fun!

Mimi said...

I just love to come here to visit with your dogs. What amazes me is the perception of calm I get from your photos. Terriers, to me, always appeared to be non-stop motion!

Diane said...

Your little baby girl is so cute, and what darling pictures, thanks so much for sharing. It sure made me smile.
Thanks, Diane

Vee said...

Such adorable furbabies with wonderful adventures! Intelligent little ones, too.

Yardwork and getting ready for new growth and flowers and grass and warm breezes must be a healing thing. Spring is just six days away...

Wishing you a good weekend.

AverettLadyNana said...

They are so cute! We had a Westie for 16 years named Mopsi. A he with a she name...that was the most adorable, sweetest, fiesty doggy. I always wanted a Scottie to go with him. But had Black Labs instead--who are sweethearts too!
Thanks for bringing back the memories of my dear friend---the pictures of yours brought back so many wonderful memories.

Kathleen Grace said...

What a sweet pair Doogs and Fiona are!

Thimbleanna said...

Your dogs are adorable -- Thanks for a little Saturday Morning cheer.

becky up the hill said...

My friend, you are making my resolve of not buying a dog very difficult. I am just smitten with this little Wheaten Scottie. Thanks for sharing such charming pictures. *Love and prayers*
p.s. was she named after Fiona on Burn Notice..lol..I love that show!

You are always on my mind and in my heart. Wishing you a "sunny" weekend. ~cheryl

I was out in the dirt a little today myself but not with anything quite so cute as that.

I recently found your blog from Jennifer's Painted Cottage, but this is my first time saying hello. Hello!
Your doggies are just adorable! If I didn't have 2 of my own, a Pug and a Lhasa, I would be heading out to get a Scottie! Our animals bring us great joy, don't they? Have a wonderful weekend*

Mrs.Kwitty said...

OMG--I just read that whole post with a big silly smile on my face! Absolutely darling, thanks, you have brightened my day!
Smiles, Karen

Our Back Porch said...

OMGosh Becky! She is just too precious for words! This was so fun to read and see. So glad that Doogs likes his little sister! What good helpers they are! I know they both bring you such joy! Praying for you each day my sweet friend.

Hugs and Blessings,
Rebecca

LillySue said...

What a fun day outside! As of yesterday, our last layer of snow has mostly melted....I should go out and throw the ball for Samdog. He goes out on the porch and sits under where the ball is and stares at it, then to me, then back to the ball, back to me, back to the ball.......I can hear his voice in my head the whole time, "Come on Mom...there's the ball....just for a while...PLEASE please please!!!
Sam would love to have a puppy sibling as the kitties don't like him at all, much to his dismay!
Blessings- LillySue

Sleec Photos said...

What a marvelous series of puppy photos. They are simply priceless! I'm delighted I discovered your blog. It's such a pleasure to read.

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Fiona and Duhgall are beautiful. I know they warm you heart and give you lots of love.

KsMaryLou said...

Aaaaaaah what a little sweetie Miss Fiona is. Doogs looks so reserved and proper, but I bet the little one can really give him a run for the money and make him act silly. Fiona looks the picture of innocence in the picture where she's napping. What a cute bed she has; my 10 month old Cardigan Welsh Corgi Jiggs (http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/20023615) would have a bed like that torn up in a flash. Thank you so much for posting such great pictures of the pups.

Lisa said...

Goodness, they are both really precious! Looks like Fiona is adjusting very well!!

Miss Sandy said...

Awwww, so adorable! Loved going to the dogs here today!

Joanna said...

What a pair! I can almost smell Fiona's puppy breath from here. I'm thinking Dougal's breath smells like coffee and shortbread cookies? Enjoy those two!

A Sentimental Journey said...

two cuter little muffins I've never seen! Miss Fiona is one pooped pup after all that hard work raking leaves ~ tooooooo cuteeeeeeeeee!!! thanks for sharing, Becky ! xo P

You know how I feel about this little white adorable dog.
Dog envy.

That is just too much! Perfect way to start my morning.

jan said...

Becky, I recently found your blog and I am so enjoying it. I absolutely adore your scottie dogs! We have been searching for one forever from a reputable breeder and have yet to locate one. I would love to know what breeder you found your beautiful dogs. If you could let me know I would greatly appreciate it. We don't live too far from you. Here is my email

God Bless you Becky our prayers are with you. Thank you.

Sophee-a Laroo Bijoux and Sheri too said...

Sooo cute!

I know you have tons of scottish goods but I was wondering if you already have a vintage plaid thermos...cannot remember who made it but they are quite collectible.

I posted about it on my blog.....months ago.
Just sitting around here~if you could use it for your collection....I would love to send it your way.

I do have your address....as I asked for it about a month ago and with your permission...was passed on by your blog buddy :)

Let me know :0)....love your blog!!!!~Sheri

She'sSewPretty said...

Oh! They are just too, too cute! I want to give them both a smooch!

♥ miss.michelle said...

...thanks Becky.
Hey...I'm headed to that little "antiques remembered?" tomorrow! You know, I see that sign all the time and have no real good reason why I haven't popped in there yet. I thrift/antique at least twice every week. What's wrong with me? :)

Thanks for the recommendation!
~michelle

Elyse said...

hi becky!

i am so happy that you like the birdhouse. one day you commented on my blog that you could use a polka dot makeover. while i knew you were only joking, i thought some polka dots could brighten your day and got busy on your birdhouse.

thinking of you!

Her eyes have just melted me into a big mushy puddle. Fiona is so adorable. Doogs is such the proper big brother. He reminds me always of Oliver. Terrific pictures, Becky.
