Tamas O

Sandy at Soaring Through Second is hosting a Furry Friends linky party and giveaway.  Here's the perfect opportunity to introduce you to my dear pal, Tamas O'Shanter.

Tam, a Scottish Terrier, is currently 13 years old.  He is a great buddy, my shadow, and he loves to play.

I found the following on the internet years ago.  The author was unknown back then, but if anyone does know who wrote it, please let me know.  If you're a dog lover, you'll love this!

If a dog was your teacher, you would learn things like:

~When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

~Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

~Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

~When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.

~Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

~Take naps and stretch before rising.

~Run, romp and play daily.

~Thrive on attention.

~Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

~On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

~On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.

~When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

~No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout.
Run right back and make friends.

~Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

~Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.  Stop when you have had enough.

~Be loyal.

~Never pretend to be something you're not.

~If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

~And MOST of all . . . when someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.

  1. Oh! Tamas is GORGEOUS! I love Scotties. When I was a little girl, maybe 2 years old, my parents gave me a stuffed scottie for Xmas (I can still remember it).
    Hugs and kisses to your very sweet puppy.
