Great Scott! Devoted Pup

We are back!

As we mentioned in our brief post last week, we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus as Gilligan’s humans (who happen to include your faithful author) have been away gettied married and going on honeymoon.

Gilligan spent some time with several excellent sitters, and we will bring you some glimpses into his time there in the lap of wiener luxury, but first…

A tale of Dog Loyalty from Bonnie ScotlandIMG_9166

One tale from Edinburgh, Scotland that is sure to thrill you dog-lovers out there, is that of Greyfriars Bobby.

Bobby was a Skye Terrier who lived in the 19th century. Legend has it that when Bobby’s owner passed away, leaving him behind, he spent the rest of his 14 years of life sitting in front of his owner’s grave and guarding it. Locals who passed by the grave on their way to and from the nearby pub came to know and love Bobby, and they would feed him bits of food when they saw him.

Then one day, Bobby passed away peacefully by the side of his owner’s grave.

Eventually, this tavern was named after the renowned canine, and a statue erected in his honor.

Just a “wee bit” of Scottish lore for you today for Black and White Sunday! Stay tuned for many more stories of the adventures our hero Gilligan and his humans have been getting into.
