Christmas is getting closer!

Yes.. believe it or not my house is fully decorated for Christmas.

SO I took a chance and started taking pictures of my two scottie girls next to the tree.

I still need to make them their Xmas coats but now they have practiced in front of the tree.

Bath robes

It's been a while since I published so I wanted to post more than one today.

I love to give Pepper and Sesame a good bath, and I found a very lovely bath robe.

I bought one for each of them and now , after the bath I always put theirs robes on, to help their hair dry up faster.

Ad that to a sun bath and you get dry scotties in no time!

Sesame has not grown into the robe just yet, but she will one day.


When she started, she never stopped.

This is how it began, leading her with the leash.

Ever since Pepper started going to doggie school we had the option to teach her how to jump hurdles.

At first she was not that into it, but finally she got it and now she loves it!

We even built one a hurdle out of pvc pipe to practice her jumps and home. It was pretty easy to build and to store!.

And now she flies over the hurdle, watch out Sesame~!

We are planing to enroll her into some agility classes to encourage her. She loved the hurdle, the A-frame and who know what else.

She wont be the firts Scottie to do Agility , but probably the first in Costa Rica.

Swimming lesson for my Scotties

Last weekend we attended an special activity just for dogs. This was a pool day for dogs.
I took Sesame and Pepper and both had a chance to swim.

Scotties swimming is a very sensitive subject since the Scottish terrier has very short legs and a heavy body. If you leave them un-attended chances are they will get tired and sink.

For this activity someone was always watching them and lifting them so that they could swim easily. It was very fun to watch them wag their tails in the water!!

There were around 20 dogs and Pepper was a little bit uncomfortable when she saw another dog swimming by her pool!

It was a lot or fun, but please always remember to never let your Scottish terrier swim unsupervised.
Watch them on youtube too!

Scottie collection

Since i was little I started collecting Scottish terrier items. In a slow manner but every time I found something with a Scottie on it, I had to have it.

Now I will start to take it more seriously and do some serious collecting.
Soon i will post some images of my new collectors items.

no teeth!

Sesame started losing her teeth.
She has lost the 4 front teeth.
Soon she will have a beautiful smile, like Pepper's.

Getting along

Its hard having a new little sister but she is ok.

she is tough! she is not as frightened as Gotica was (Jack Russel) from me.
She actually fights back!
When ever I am getting attention, she bites my tail! i hate that.

I have to tell you, that it is fun playing tug with ther. She is getting stronger, and some times, she even get the toy! When she does... i get little mad. After a few seconds, I'm happy again, and we continue to play.

I have a sister!

Today Sesame arrive from El Salvador!
she's a tiny wheaten scottie.

She is nice, but I dont like her that much.. she eats a different food and is too tiny to play with me.
I know we will be best pals son.

I'm happy I have someone to play with, some time soon.

She was so good to me, she even brought me some kong stuffing!

I'm loving it!

Dog Show

This weekend we went to a Dog Show.

We went with Pepper, and she had a good time watching all the show dogs.

The thing is , she wanted to play and well, the show dogs were very concentrated doing their jobs.

We got to see her doggy school teacher, which made her very excited and her groomer too.

I wanted to share a video of Pepper, one of the first times she did the Arooo!.
I could not stop laughing.

There was a plastic bag that was tormenting her, so her first option was Arooooo!

Now she does that every time she wants someone to pick Alf (favorite stuffed animal) from the floor, while she is on the bed.

Time for a Bath

Pepper is getting so dirty, she is getting a bath tomorrow!
I wanted to share some pics of a bath we gave her a couple of months ago.
It was a very beautiful Sunday morning. This was before she had her first stripping.

Scottish Terrier Drawing

I wanted to be creative and I started drawing Pepper on the computer.
This is the result!

Its not exactly Pepper but it does look like a Scottish Terrier

Next time, it 'll be closer looking to Pepper

Time to remmeber December!

Since Pepper arrived on December she was just in time for Christmas.

She was the center of attention!

I had a red dress with a Scottish pattern skirt and it fitted her perfectly.
She looked so cute, a tiny black fur ball with a cute red dress.

We also bought her a bed to have on the terrace. Cute "couch" like that matches our furniture.

My aunt came from CA and brought 2 bone shaped pillows for her.

Doggy Graduation day

On Saturday Pepper had her graduation from Doggy School.
She was the only Scottish Terrier of all 80 dogs.
She did great! As her trainer said: "Pepper is a show on her own!" probalby because Scottish Terriers are not that common in Costa Rica.

Pepper walk

Pepper stay

Pepper on the stairs....

Pepper Fetch!

Pepper on A- frame - this was very funny, the frame was in the middle and Pepper just passed over it!

Now we are about to enroll Pepper into Agility Lessons! Scottish Terrier Agility

B- day party

On Monday I turn 25!

This weekend we celebrated my bday with some friends and Pepper was a very important part of the party

"Mind if I sit here?"

One of my friends fell in love with her and tried to still my scottie away!

"Are you sure mom is ok with this?"

"Don't mind me, I'm just mingling"

And the first one to fell asleep was Pepper. It was a long night and the next day she had her Doggy School Graduation

Scottish ears

When Pepper arrived her ears where still down.
These are some images that show the process that over a week lead to her fully straight Scottish ears.

Both ears down

One up!!

Almost done...

Tadah!!! Scottish ears!

Wet Pepper

As good Scottish Terrier, Pepper loves to dig...

Just take a look at her brown nose and you'll know she dug some holes on the backyard...
After a whole week of having a dirty nose, face, paws... the time has come to take the first bath.

Pepper usually loves water, the hose, the rain.. but not when she is not in charge.

As you can guess, Pepper hated her first bath..

We took all the precautions needed:
1. it was a sunny day
2. we bought her a neutral ph shampoo
3. special care for the ears
4. a towel to dry her up
5. brushed her after

She had not grown in to her ears! She looks like a Chiuahua.

"help... i want to get out!"

Doggy School

Pepper was enrolled in doggy school since she was 3 months old.
She is the only Scottish Terrier but she made friends very fast.We have accomplished a lot, including obedience and some agility excersices, which she loves.

Stay! Good Pepper!
She is hanging with her Chihuahua friends

The A- Frame is her favorite

"sure... going up is easy!"

"How much longer should I stay here....""this is not my favorite part..going down is scary!"

"this is sooo easy!!"
