I've seen Scottish Terriers before but finding a breeder seems to be really hard to find...where would I find one? Check on the internet? Call SPCA? Open to ideas..

Check the net Annabelle. Purebred breeders are pricey though. You should also check into what kind of manners the dog has, and if that matches your lifestyle. A lot of Terriers are in constant need of a task, and are a ball of energy all the time. They're far higher maintenance than bigger dogs and can take a lot out of you. Check it out first. smile.gif

Annabelle! No bother at all! Anyway I can help would be glad to. OldRaven is right though. Check the internet. You know I said between $300-500, but they could probably run for more money than that. I know of someone who just bought a Sheltie for $500. The breeders can really jack up the prices on their dogs, so be careful. I would check the net.

I love Scotty dogs (Scottish terriers) . I have several books on dogs when I was doing so many dog portraits, I bought them. The one dog book I have talks about the personality of Scotties and it says the following that may help you:

They make good house dogs, are great guard dogs and can bite. Good with children. Good outdoors or indoors. Can go anywhere and do anything. It is a very sensitive to criticism and praise and should be trained gently. Couragous and undaunted by the face of danger. Well-loved companion dog. Plays well with children, barks little, has a watchful nature in regards to the house. Should be taken for long walks frequently. His hair needs stripping at least twice a year and frequent brushing for its good looks to be fully appreciated.

And to answer your question about Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties). Yes, they are the ones that are used to bring in sheep and cattle. They are herding dogs and like Scotties, you always see them at Scottish festivals. Westies are Scottish dogs too and very good dogs too. If you want to know about them, I can tell you. Just ask! Hope all this helps! smile.gif

We got our Tiny toy poodle as a rescue. She is also a special needs poodle (abusive background and a thyroid disorder) We found her on the internet and I think we paid $300 (incidentaly expense) our previous dog (which we lost in Feb after 12 years,,,sigh sad.gif ) I think we paid $500 for brand new in the box laugh.gif

Considering what they give back I don't really think any of our dogs have been expensive.

Rose, she's a purebred German Shepheard and yes still a pup. She's 16 months and not yet full grown, but still a very large dog. She's a pup because she still acts like one. When playing she'll run at you like a bullet train, thinking she's just a VW Bug. We named her Buffy, the Kitty Slayer. After the greatest TV show that ever existed.

dry.gif stop laughing.


We got her at six weeks and she's been the perfect dog........once we broke her stuborness. I've got some pics of her in the Art thread. biggrin.gif

Hey Richard! I am very impressed! Nice to put a face with a name. What's that in your hand?

I wonder if MacFive has considered putting a gallery on the site where we can all put our pics of ourselves in? Has there been any talk of that? That would be cool.


OldRaven -- I am still laughing at Butty the Kitty Slayer! laugh.gif laugh.gif Sorry! angel_not.gif Anyway, I have always heard that German Shepherds make excellent pets. Is she an indoor dog at all?

Thank you Celtic Rose,

If memory serves me right, I am holding a Brown Bess Muzzle Loading Rifle (an original one to boot). I am not sure what the caliper of it was though.

Nice pic, Richard!

I am envious!! I own a repro Bess, and would love to get my greedy little mits on an original. wink.gif

By the way, the Brown Bess was usually smooth bore, and in .75 cal. The barrel length varied from 46 inches for a first model (ca 1750) to 42 inches for a second model (ca 1775) to 36 inches for a third model (ca 1805).

Sorry, the reenactor in me just can't help it!! biggrin.gif

Just my tuppence.

No problem Andy,

And you are right. The Brown Bess was a smooth bore. Most people does not know what a smooth bore is.

I use to do some re-enactments in my younger days too.

BTW, The Brown Bess was not mine but a Friend of mine. It was given to me on loan during the shoot.

The avatar discussion is actually a good topic. As I am new here I am learning people by their pics, some names, but mostly pics. When I found the site and decided I wanted to join, I looked through the avatars, then scanned through some of the threads. I looked around to see what pics were taken and tried not to pic one that was in use. I hope I didn't take someones pic. Please let me know and I will change it right away. I feel it is only fair if someone was here first that I should change mine.

I also agree that possibly 'blocking' the access to the use of the pic after it has been chosen is a good idea. Can it be done?




Take care

I am new to all this so I hope I did not use an already taken avatar. If so I will gladly change. I would not intensionally offend such nice people.
