Show & Tell: A "Tail" of Two Dogs

This will be a short Show & Tell - blame it on the rain, or the fact that it's Monday, and I already need a snorkel to breathe under my workload this week. Anyway, here goes!

Scottie FigurinesWhen I was younger, my family had two Scottish Terriers. They were wonderful dogs, and I grew to love the breed. Now that I'm older, I have a rambunctious Scottie of my own. The two figurines in the picture were given to me recently by my parents; oddly synchronous gifts, in light of the fact that they hate each other desperately and have not spoken in nine years.

My mother has had the figurine on the left for years, but felt it was time to pass it on. I wonder whether my dad remembered it, and if that triggered his purchase of the one on the right. In any case, I thought it was bittersweet that they both chose to give me the same gift, around the same time.

Don't forget to take a peek at what the rest of the class brought!

They are very cute. Sorry your parents don't speak anymore. However, it looks like they still have something they agree upon... YOU!

Adorable figurines! That's too bad that your parents aren't speaking, but at least they can show how much they love you. Have a happy Monday!

My goodness - our lives are similar in this area too. Only my parents haven't spoken for like 23 years or something...

A friend of mine in high school who died shortly after we graduated had a black scottie dog.

Thanks for sharing those adorable figurines!
