Now That's a Big One

     This weekend is our annual Tartan Days Festival down on our riverfront.  There are booths selling Scottish/Irish wares, food booths, drink, music, and Scottish sporting events.

We always walk in the parade with St. Louis Scottish Terrier Rescue.  Our kids carry the banner for them and both our Scotties walk with all the other Scotties behind the banner.

     This morning the weather was amazing for a parade.  There were tons of Scotties that showed up. There was also a huge group of Shelties that showed up and walked the parade, too.  It's always so much fun to see people with their dogs at this parade.

     After the parade we stand around and talk with the other Scottie people for a while and then head back to the parking lot at the south end of the park.  We usually stop and watch some of the big burly Scottish men participating in their sporting events.  These all include trying to throw something that is really heavy.  Today we got to see some of the log throwing and this is one of the pictures I got.

I think that's the biggest one I've ever seen!


Come laugh with other bloggers who have funny stories.
Weekend Funnies


  1. I love Scotties! When I was younger we used to dog sit one and he was such a nice well mannered dog.

  2. I have always been a Scottie person. My dad brought a puppy Scottie home to live with us when I was just three. There's never been any other dog for me. Don't get me wrong I love all dogs, but Scotties are my favorite. My husband and I got our first Scottie about 3 years after we got married. She gave us 13 wonderful years. The two we have now we brought home in July of 2011.
