It’s only four months ago that Scottish Terrier Health Network was “formed”. To me it seems like I’ve known you all for “ever”. The sharing of information vital to the health of our Scotties is outstanding. The willingness of each and every one of you to help others in need is humbling. I believe that the momentum will continue. Although we are making ripples where it matters, the intention is not to provoke and cause confrontation. Many of us are well aware of the declining health and shortness of life our scotties are currently undergoing – the intention is to alter that course and breed healthier, longer-lived Scotties. And to meet this end, we all need to get involved, from Vets, Breeders, “Show Dog Folks” and the Pet Owner. We all play our own specific roles and if we don’t amend our ways, it will be all of us to blame for the loss of this beautiful breed. Together though we are Making A Difference for our Scotties, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.
Coming Up …
