Amazing Grace

by - November 03, 2016

Gracie had her first grooming session on Tuesday. The groomer said she is too young to be properly stripped but she had a fair amount of hair removed and she seems to be happier now that her thick coat has gone.

She has weed seeds all over her here. They're sticky and hard to pick off. She's now got the beginnings of the authentic Scottish Terrier look with the eyebrows standing up, a beard, smooth back and a long skirt. She looks so pretty!


The next time she is groomed, when she's a few months older, she'll be stripped and shaped into the familiar Scottie sqareness. By then her ears will be standing up too. They still flop down now but I think that has a bit to do with the amount of hair on her ears. We'll be in Brisbane today so she'll have to be on her best behaviour. She'll have a couple of runs in a park and I'll pack her lunch of chicken and a container of water so I'm sure she'll enjoy her outing.

  1. Gracie is growing so fast Rhonda, she is adorable. I feel like she speaks to you with her eyes. They seem to say/show everything, I hope you had a good day in Brisbane together.

  14. Those look like the same weed seeds we have in our Florida yard. They're awful for dogs, they stick in between their toes and get everywhere. No idea what they are, we call them beggarweeds, but I don't think that's their real name. Also, I love Gracie's ears as they are now, partially standing up but a bit floppy. She's a cutie.

  15. What a cutie! I'm trying to convince myself that I do not want any more dogs, but Gracie is making it hard!

  16. Such a sweetheart - I grew up with a Scottie, Tammy, and just recently came across some of his puppy photos - there's nothing quite as fetching as a Scottie puppy, is there? Not to say that there isn't a bit of mischief behind those melting eyes .....

  17. Our Ladybug is 8 this year, I still remember the day she only had one ear that had popped up and the other had not. She just went to the groomer the other day and had her normal cut. She gets quite fuzzy in-between. Congrates on your sweet Scottie my husband and can tell you she is going to make a wonderful addition to your family!

  18. oh look at those eye brows!! She is just a darling.

    We are looking into breeding Scotty Dogs, just on the small scale. We have a fantastic local vet, a big block and we Grant has a good understanding of animal genetics and breeding. We also have two friends locally that breed dogd, not Scotty Terriers but they are firmly in the right circles and are a wealth of knowledge regarding rules and regulations so we know we are doing it well. :)
