Small Packages and a Contest

They say that good things come in small packages. That's true. Only this small package wasn't just a "good thing", it was a sweet, thoughtful, PINK thing. We went to my friend Becky's house just before Christmas to exchange gifts and wish their family a wonderful holiday season. She is always so thoughtful and knows just the right thing to give someone. Although this wasn't all she gave me (you really didn't have to do all that, Becky!), it was the smallest and sweetest. It's a little pink Scotty! I swear. If you collect something - like pink china and scotties - it's out there. You just have to look. I'm going to name her Miss Pink. Isn't she darling?

Do you see the black and white Christmas card behind Miss Pink? That is a card hand painted by none other than our friend Wave. She is so talented, kind and a fellow Scotty owner. Her home is featured this month at The Old Painted Cottage.


Now this picture doesn't have anything to do with Christmas or gifts or good friends. It's just Maggie being silly. My 100th post anniversary came and went without a giveaway. So I think I'll have a giveaway to celebrate Miss Maggie's one year birthday on January 20th. It won't be just a "leave a comment" contest. I'm having a contest for the most clever caption for Maggie's picture.

Make up something really good and leave it on the comment section! Maggie and I will judge the entries on her birthday. The winner will receive a wonderful gift (I'll post a picture of it as soon as I figure out what it is. Talk about spur of the moment! Te He!) I will also make a donation to the animal shelter or rescue site of your choice.

Have a wonderful, restful and peaceful Sunday! Go out there and hug someone you love and give a smile to a stranger. It's contagious!

Miss Maggie is a cutie!

She is saying something like "hey! Take a picture of me for your blog! I'm SO cute!"

It makes sense that she would be giving YOU commands. She is after all, a terrier! :)

Happy new year! Does Maggie have something in her head or is that something behind her?

Maggie is saying, "I'm ready for my close up, Mr Demille."

Happy New Year!

Ahhhh, you are so welcome! The PINK scotty had your name alllll over it!

Ok....Maggie is scaring me with her rendition of JAWS! But here is my caption:

"Ok, much as I hate the dentist, I will open wide. Would you care to see more?"

Have fun with the contest!!!

xoxo and hugs to big mouth scotty girl!!

Cute picture and happy blog anniversary. My caption submission: "I'm having a bad hair day - you wanna make something of it?"

What a wonderful picture and such a beautiful blog! How I adore Scotties. We had friends who got a sweet Scottie girl years ago and let me name her. Maggie May was so dear and gentle...I just had to grin from ear to ear when I saw YOUR Maggie!

I think your Maggie is saying...*Clearing throat*
"Mememememe...Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and your heart out Celine!"

Your Maggie is a sweetie so she is saying,
"I say, Am I cute or what? Do you want to see me in a different pose now?

Becky is the best gift giver, is she not? Your pink Scottie is so sweet and perfect.

Maggie has grown up! Here is my caption for the funny photo:

People say 'cheese' when their pictures are taken. Scotties say SNARL', but only in a friendly Scottie sort of way of course!

Scotties are so cute and I love the pink one!
I think she is saying: "I saw what you did and I know who you are."
Thank you for the cute picture

I have a scottie named Maggie also! She wishes your Maggie a very aroooo birthday! We think your Maggie is the big bad wolf in disguise, and is saying: "come on in Little Red Riding Hood; I am so happy to see you!"

So cute! I just came over from Becky's.
Maybe Maggie is saying, "You want me to do WHAT?"

"It wasn't me, I swear! Samuel did it."
