Memory of Monroe Scottie Rescue

A fun day with these prickly, stubborn dogs that I adore and hope to adopt someday. Memory of Monroe Scottish Terrier Rescue put on a great event on a rainy September 13 at the Carver County Fairgrounds.

A pair with an old-school clip - they look like Skye Terriers the breed that were the grandpas to the Cairn, West Highland White Terrier and the Scottish Terrier.

A blended family of rescue dogs of different ages, and a sassy Westie ringleader. A couple of Scottie/Westie owners say that the Westies start the mischief and the Scotties trot along.

A really moving ceremony for the rescues that have passed on - the white balloons are for Wheaten Scotties and Westies, the black for black and brindle Scotties. Before the ceremony began, a pastor gave a moving blessing for the deceased and asked for a moment of silence. That must have been for the humans, because all of a sudden we heard:
"WOOFOFOFOFFFFFFFARFWOOOOFWOOFWOOOWOOOOOOOF" from all the Scottie pens outside. They are small dogs, but have big, deep voices!

A parade of all the Scottie rescues placed this year. It was pouring rain, but the dogs didn't care. They had their noses in the grass. Forget about any formation!

After such a full day, we were all kind of tired.

Smashing photos-they all look very chirpy. An online friend of mine does a lot with this organisation.....they do a great job.

I was so impressed by the picnic. I am planning to adopt through them, but going to the picnic really clinched it.
