What I want for my Birthday!

Did you go visit Rocky Creek Scotties today ?  Their Mom Dog Carrleigh delivered NINE puppies for them.  They are so tiny and so cute! 

Yes, this is what I want for my next birthday is a Scottish puppy.  They would be lots of fun to play with
and maybe even they wouldn't mind the snow so much. I could be a good mother to one too, because I know how to take care of things, I have a soft mouth and I never, ever hurt my stuffees (well, just that one time.)  I would make sure the puppy stayed where I wanted it to be, you know I am part Border Collie, and I know how to herd things and to keep things safe.

I like to take naps too, little puppies need lots of naps every day so they don't get too tired.  This is just a perfect thing for me to have, don't you think?

Maybe it would look like this puppy and I would have to think of a good name for it.  Not right now though.

I just can't wait for my birthday, now, I am sooo excited!

Stella, I definitely think you need a puppy for your birthday. What fun you'd have and Ali Z would have to get up high to protect that tail from tiny sharp teeth.

Hi Stella, a puppy would make the perfect gift.
Just think it would be a puppy Hamish!
How cool would that be.
Then again we have been told they are an awful lot of work........
We know you will get a nice surprise anyways.

Stella, I suggest you post this up every day, until your parents realize you mean business. I think you'd make an interesting pair with your birthday present.

Mr Koda MD said...

It obvious that you are the best equipped for raising a Scottie puppy!!

Any special occasions coming up?

Keep convincing....

Remington said...

What a great idea for a birthday present! A friend forever! Keep asking -- they will give in....

Dory and the Mama said...

Ummm....Stella...have you talked to Ali Z about this yet???? Maybe you should break it to her over a fish dinner???


giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Huffle Mawson said...

When is your birthday Stella? Should we start a campaign to get your mum to get you a puppy?

Tell Ali Z she is welcome to come to my house any time she needs a time out too :)

This little guy in the picture looks just like a young Piper.

Hope you get a Scottie for your birthday - it would enjoy the snow.

Hi Stella. Whoa..that pup looked like Kaiser, the terrier who used to stay at our place and bit the dad-ster! Anyhowls, i hope you'll get the gift you want and keep us updated! Have a great day!


Mack and Sally Ann said...

Perhaps your Mommy and Daddy could go to a Terrier rescue to find a puppy for you. The puppy could be called "Luna." Stella Luna

If you got that puppy for your birthday and took it out in the snow, I think it would get lost! You could only see it's black nose!

Do woo want me to get pikhk on out fur woo?


Lorenza said...

Hi, Stella!
I hope your wish comes true!
Kisses and hugs

Hamish Westie said...

Stella dear, dearest Stella, of course you should have a Scottish terrier puppy (I am taking it that you would happily have either a Scottie - black or wheaten, or a Westie or a Cairn?)
I note that the problem of getting lost on the snow has already been raised. There is of course a simple solution, a nice bright jacket, perhaps red, with the young pups name embroidered on.
Now of course it would be very important to find a good Scottish name for the new pup. I really do suggest you consult someone who lives in Scotland on this issue (Me, for example!) In my experience, some of you fellow countryman have odd ideas on what is and isn't a Scottish name. (Gail has some friends in the US who called their daughter Zealon, saying it was Scottish, but neither she nor I nor anyone else we have ever asked has heard of that name here in Scotland)
Finally, as for reconciling Ali Z to the idea, you might point out that, at least at the puppy stage, Scottish terriers often bear a passing resemblance to a cat in the shape of the face - like the one in your picture, indeed.
Whew, that was a long reply..
Good luck anyway!
Cheers! H.

Hamish Westie said...

PS yes there's more.
I forgot to say that yes of course it is obvious that you would be the most wonderful mother and that any young puppy would be so lucky to have you taking care of them.

MAX said...

Hey there Stella
I most definitely think that a puppy like that in your household would be a wonderful idea. My mom says she's totaly with you on this one... aren't they too cute for words!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh it'd be real cool if you get what you want for your birthday! On my 9th birthday, I did NOT ask for a puppy but I got one nevertheless.. now I am stuck with a little sister who is bigger and heavier than me, and steals all my toys!!

KB said...

I think that a puppy would be the perfect gift for your birthday. And a small dog could be like a lap dog for you, snuggling up without taking up too much room on your bed.

Leave some hints around the house for your mom so that she knows what you want.

My word verification is "scale". Do you think that means that I need to stand on one today????

Come back to visit us - we're having a "name that puppy" contest on our blog - we know since you want a Scottie you have surely researched names. Please pass the word - we'd like a lot of contestants to enter.
