Introducing Porter

I Thought today would be a good day to let everyone meet Porter and to learn a little more about him. For me it had been a dream since I was very young to be owned by a Scottie I always thought I had a lot in common with the breed, stubborn, smart and very determined, plus I always loved history and they have had their part in so much of it and who can watch Lady & the Tramp without falling in love with Jock? Porter was born June 22, 2008, the day Porter came to live with us was one of my happiest days ever he was SO cute with his head about the same size as the rest of his body. He was my husbands first dog ever (he didn't have dogs growing up) so that took some getting used to for him but it was truly love at first site for us both. I have lots of great stories about him that I am thinking they will come up in later posts so I thought I would end with his likes and dislikes.

Porters Favorite Things:
His crate (he has loved it since the moment he came home)
Squeakys especially balls that squeak
The dog park though he isn't as well behaved as we would hope.
The beach
Car Rides where he doesn't have to be in his crate.

His least favorite things:
Sports games on the T.V.
People moving him when he is sleeping
Not getting his way
Diesel Engines
His brother (kinda)


  1. I love it! Hi Porter! I always wanted a Scottie when I was younger too and was so thrilled when I first got Pippen! A little overwhelmed because she was my first dog, but we figured it out! I'm enjoying your blog a lot!

  2. Hey Porter~I have some of those same likes and dislikes too. My mom wanted a scottie ever since she was a kid and so she was thrilled when she got me 5 yrs ago!!

  3. Porter, you are just like us! And any dog that doesn't like cats is all right by us!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    We saw Porter and Ernest at the Scottish Terrier News site, in your Easter Ears.

  4. He sounds like a perfectly normal Scottie to us!!

  5. Pippi is my first dog, Josh's dad had a Scottie when he was a kid.


  6. I can't believe how many people have Scotties as their first dog, now 3 years and 2 Scotties later. Porter was really my first dog as an independent human lol. It seems crazy but I love every minute of it.
