Heather, Mr. K., Pudley, & Nibbles

These four adorable rescue Scotties are one of the cutest crews you’ll ever meet – so cute they’ve amassed their own fan club through the wonderful blog Scottie Mom! When I first arrived, I thought I was at the wrong house because I didn’t hear a peep when I knocked. But it turns out these four are really just that laid-back. (I know, I’m jealous too!)

Eleven-year-old Heather is the leader of the pack and her main goal in life is to seek out treats, and when she’s satisfied there aren’t any eluding her, she’ll settle down in her favorite corner (she has one in each room of the house). Mr. K is nine years old and of course he loves treats, but he also loves the ball. He’s quite the athlete, along with Pudley, who just joined the family this year with his littermate Nibbles.

It was so fun to see these four together. Even though Pudley and Nibbles are new to the family, they’re finding their places well and it is wonderful to see such a harmonious pack. Their amazing mama takes incredible care of them and is such a great advocate for rescue – many people assume if they want a certain breed that rescuing isn’t an option, but that’s rarely the case. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a pup who had a turn of bad luck end up hitting the jackpot, and they certainly have with the Scottie Mom!

From left to right, meet Pudley, Nibbles, Heather, and Mr. K.:

Words cannot express how adorable Butters the Basset Hound is, so I’m glad I have the photos to prove it! He turns heads everywhere he goes and the compliments are endless – but he doesn’t let that go to his head. He’s as sweet and as laid-back as can be, quiet and unassuming and just wants to be where everyone else is. (Just like the South Park character who inspired his name.)

I felt like I could hear Butters’ Eeyore-like voice while I was photographing him – can you hear it too when you look at his photos? I love this guy!


Bella is sweet little Aussiedoodle who wants nothing more than to be with her people. She’s a quiet girl, always observing and listening. Even while she’s napping, she’ll still listen for a car to come up the drive and then she dashes to the front room, wagging her tail and waiting to see through the window who’s coming home next.

She has a big basket of toys and lots of space to explore, but she’s only ever interested in her alligator plush toy and the room where her people are. When she’s feeling comfortable and content, she’ll roll over for a belly rub and cuddle for hours on end.

Isn’t she a sweetheart?
