I am a grad student at Eastern Michigan studying historic preservation of architecture. I have been with my boyfriend Mike since July 3, 2011. I have a Scotty named Charlie Madison who will be 7 on the ides of March. He is the apple of my eye and my baby. He has lived with me in Chicago, OKC, and now outside of Detroit. I got Charlie as a rescue outside of St. Louis in August 2006. He was scheduled to be put down the next day by the shelter, I can't imagine why no one had taken him home yet! He is fully papered and the most lovable dog. It is said when you first meet a Scottie you can take him or leave him but after a week in the same home there I no way to separate you, and you can't help but love him. It is so true about Charlie, he is my 3rd Scottie. And I want another so he has a sister.
