I was proud to be a Scottie owner when I saw the Scottish Terriers leading each team onto the stage for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, they are wonderful loyal and friendly dogs.
Meg, my own Scottie, who is now 8 years old, was a wedding present from my husband and her favourite toy is still her soft donkey that I gave her when she was a puppy.
I have had to sew an ear back on and make some repairs to his stomach but whenever she is worried she always wants her donkey with her.
I was reminded of this last weekend during the thunder storms when she frantically searched under the chairs until she found him. I thought I would share this picture of her with her donkey.
Meg lives on our farm in Ottery St Mary with her daughter Tessa who is three years old, she is on the left of the picture.
Do any donkey owners also have Scotties?
