Author: The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

Prince Albert

If you follow us over on The Scottie Chronicles, you know that our Winston loves to go to the Farmers’ Market every Saturday. And you know that he’s sometimes a pissy Scottie.

There’s a lovable little Schnauzer he sees from time to time and this morning Prince Albert gave Winston the Schnauzer “lean in” and the two started to catch up with each other. Saying “hello” and “how’ve you been buddy?”

I noticed two shaved areas where coat was growing back and said, “aw, there’s a little IV shave.”

“He’s got hemangiosarcoma,” his peep told me.

I started crying and couldn’t stop. The searing pain of the shotgun through my heart when we learned Stuart had it came back with a fury.

Thank you for your support. Your gifts to Stuart’s Fund will help get rid of hemangio. The clinical trials your gifts help fund are working diligently to figure out this cancer.

Prince Albert may not have very long to live, but he’s living every day to the fullest. And we were grateful for the chance to play with him a bit this morning. As his peep says, “he doesn’t even know he’s sick.”

Thank you for what you’re doing to help say no to hemangio.

 

Special Memorials for Your Furiends

Losing a special 4-legged friend (or a feathered- or finned-friend) is devastating. Memorial contributions honor those who have passed and help build a better future for those left behind.

A gift to Stuart’s Fund in honor of a loved one is a permanent way to keep the memories alive.

It’s easy. Simply click the “DONATE NOW” button on this site’s BLOGROLL to the right.

Thank you! Or, as Stuart would say, “ARrOOOOO rOOOOOO!”

THANK YOU!

2 Days Left

In just two days – midnight, October 12 – the Stuart’s Fund special T-Shirt campaign ends. Until then, you still have the opportunity to order a limited edition T or hoodie. You can also make a donation if shirts aren’t your style.

Why is this important? Because too many dogs die from hemangiosarcoma. An especially virulent cancer that impacts too many lives. There is no test, no effective treatment and no cure.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As of today, 57 shirts have been sold with a total donation of more than $800 toward Stuart’s Fund.

Don’t let Stuart’s death be for naught. You can help save a life. For future generations of dog lovers. And for human cancer research as well.

Thank you for your help!
