Kissing Scotties

Little magnets keep them from getting too far apart. 

Salt and Pepper
Last summer when we visited Scotland, I looked everywhere for little Scottie dog souvenirs, but they were a very rare commodity.  We found three little black beanie Scotties at the airport in Edinburgh...one for my granddaughter Ashley, one for Miss Jean, and one for myself.  I was expecting to find little Scottie dogs everywhere in Scotland, but it just didn't happen.

Our airport Scottie  - St. Andrew Square - Edinburgh

No Scottie dogs on the Royal Mile.

   Everything Scottish....no dogs!


This last June when we where in Las Vegas
for the Gold Rush Classic Horse Show,
I was surpised to find these little
  lovers at the South Pointe Hotel gift shoppe. 
I've named them Salt & Pepper.
Two sets came home with me. One for me and maybe one for you?

They are adorable! That is neat how they have the magnet so that they do not get separated.

These are absolutely adorable. I think I would have brought home an extra set too. That's quite a bummer about no Scottie souvenirs in Scotland! Poohey!!

Well fancy the Scots having no Scottie dogs ... what a disappointment that must have been for you. I would have thought they'd have a few Westies at least! I do think the ones you found are so beautifully cute though (perhaps you can just pretend they came from Scotland lol!).
Warmest Hugs,

P.S. Please stop by when you get a chance, I have a great giveaway on offer.

Yvonne, these little dogs are so cute! Love each one's little cap and bow. I enjoyed seeing your pics of the seals. When we were in Monterey, we saw so many of them- such playful creatures. Hope all is well w/you. You're thankful for warmer weather, and I am thrilled for the cooler temperatures! Take care-
