Spotlight Thursday – A Celebration of our Friend Stuart

07 Jan

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to our first edition of SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this new series!


UPDATE:  This post was already set up to highlight my pal Stuart.  Then we heard about his passing on 12/12/2015.  We were all so upset to hear the news just as everyone else was.  We went back and forth trying to decide to post this today but then thought YES.  

Let’s celebrate the life of our good friend Stuart.  

We know he’s watching over all of us and let’s spend today not in sorrow but remembering the life of our pal and what he meant to all of us.  And by all means, let’s remember his wonderful sense of humor! ❤  So join us my friends as we celebrate the life of Stuart in his interview.  Please feel free to share this page, your stories of how you met and how he has touched your heart.

Name: My AKC name is BoBo’s Over the Shoulder Dream Choice, but my friends, like you, can call me Stuart. Stuart the Scottie. I also answer to “Stu Pot”, “Lamb Chop”, “Stumeister”, “Love Boy” and “Streudelhead”. But don’t tell anybody. Actually, I don’t answer to anything unless I want to.

Age: Well, technically I’m 9. But people think I’m a gazillion because my brindle hairs make me look like a gray old man. To tell you the truth, I walk like an old man sometimes, but that’s just because I’m bored. I can get a kick in my kaboodle any time I want.

Location: Richmond, VA

Web/Blog Page:  Scottie Chronicles You can also find me on Twitter, Tumbler and Pinterest.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Oh. I thought they were nice. Nice enough to fall asleep in one’s lap for a while and to stare at the other one’s eyes once I woke up. It worked. Because they came to pick me up the next week. I still fall asleep with them, but I don’t stare at them too much any more. Don’t want them to think I can’t live without them, now would I? No. I. Would. Not.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  .I was only 10 weeks old at the time, but I knew I was home just as soon as our car pulled away from the place where I was born. Those folks weren’t nice. They didn’t like me and they wanted me gone. I didn’t even know how to play like most puppies. Good riddance I say. My peeps – as I call them – love me to pieces and I love them. The past is forgotten. Well, not really forgotten. I still have bad dreams sometimes about that awful place. But my peeps are always there for me. Geez. I gotta stop with this mushy stuff. It’s unbecoming to a Scottie.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  .I do so many things that the peeps don’t know about, but it must have been the time I got caught on the sofa in the big room. Now, I know I’m not supposed to get up on that thing. But I do it all the time. Been doing it for years. What the peeps don’t know, won’t hurt them, right?

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Now that’s an interesting question. I’d say they’re about even. I get what I want. Whenever I want it. No question about that. Absoroootly no question.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That I’m an old man. I fool people all the time. Just the other day, a neighbor with one of those designer dogs saw me chase a squirrel. He was amazed. “Wow! Look at Stuart go! I’ve never seen him do that!” Right buddy. And you’ll be lucky to see it again. I’m not old, I’m just very particular about how much energy I exert. Not like that BOUNCY thing you’ve got.. I. Do. Not. Jump. On. People.








 Check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    Tears are flowing from the kindness you and your blog friends are showing our Studebaker. If he were here, I’d read it to him and I’m SURE he’d give you a big ARRROOOO!

    Thank you Bacon and Houdini.

    I am so glad you went ahead with this spotlight. It was a beautiful memorial, and what could be better than to be in Stuart’s own words about himself.

      01/11/2016 at 10:43 am

      aaww – thanks my friend. I think it was only befitting to have my pal Stuart showcased first. He was and still is a great guy. XOXO – Bacon

    What a lovely way to celebrate Stuart’s life….a celebration of life so to speak. We did not know Stuart in Blogville but wish we had now. He sounds like a down to earth dog that would appreciate the ramblings of a couple of northern kitties….as long as we weren’t in his back yard.

    May your wings guide you to us.

    Thank you, Bacon, for celebrating The Stu. These kind comments from your friends are really helping us left behind. The sadness hurts, but the comfort brought from these words helps so very much.

      You are so welcome my sweet friend. Stuart meant a lot to all of us – he always will. Hogs and snout kisses. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
