Sarah, Mac and Jack

Just thought I’d send you a couple of photos taken yesterday of our Scottish Terriers.

We have had STECS dogs since 1993, Sarah came to us 10 years ago with Mac with whom she was closey bonded. She was 6 and he was 5 at the time, but sadly we lost him to cancer of the jaw about five years ago. Sarah fretted terribly, although we had other dogs, so I contacted STECS to see if they could find us a friend for her and Cath Marchbank kindly brought us Jack.

Jack was 3 when he came to us, after having lived in the Tower of London! It was love at first sight and they have been great friends ever since. Sarah is now 16, and still in charge of Jack, our 13 year old Basset Hound Moses, and 5 year old Italian Spinone, Sweep. She is quite thin and her coat isn’t what it was in younger days, but she can still jump onto the sofa, run after a rabbit (albeit not as fast and not over a long distance).

She’s a grand old lady, and still has a good quality of life.

Best wishes
