Eilidh, my sweetie wheatie, is a stubborn and determined little baggage! She was the smallest of the litter, but the first to have both ears up. So I never knew her with her ears down.
Magnus, on the other hand, spent the first few months with me with one ear up and one ear down! They say that if a Scottie’s ears are not up by the time they are 5 months old they will never go up. Magnus was 6 months old before his second one went up!
Both dogs were unaffected by the cold and the wet, and spent hours rushing round the garden, pausing occasionally to take stock. They are both diggers, but it shows more on Eilidh….
Then came the snow – something they both LOVED! They took every opportunity to get wet and dirty, then they would crash out on the sofa.
Both dogs learnt very early that my granny wagon meant fun. They rode on the footwell until they got to the end of the wall, when they got off and ran along the grass. They are very good at staying on the verge or pavement.
About this time Eilidh decided she was part meerkat! She loves to stand on her back legs so she can get a better view. When on the lead she will sometimes use it to lean off, but in the garden she just stands tall.
By now their adult coats were coming through. Eilidh is fifty shades of blonde, while Magnus is a hundred shades of everything.
As ever, videos here.
