STRSE and the Diamond Nine Scots would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who rallied together in support of this rescue and the welfare of our Scotties in need. We are so grateful for the many donations, prayers, kind words and encouragement. Many of you have donated toward the medical care of the Diamond Nine. Dr. McCurry and the Heartland Staff are phenomenal. We could never do what we do without all of you and our valued volunteers. STRSE is very blessed to be so loved, trusted and supported by many.

This has been a really hard few months to say the least but also a very humbling time knowing that we are so supported by our Scottie Family near and far. Thank you just doesn’t seem adequate for this outpouring of love. I hope you all always know just how very much you are appreciated and loved. Look at the faces of the lives that you are changing every day.

Thank you so much Scottie Family. dog paw printsdog paw prints

SUMMER SPOTLIGHT: Scarlet (Dog A) & Annabelle (Dog B)


STRSE traveled to North Carolina checking in on Scarlet, now "Raygn" and Annabelle, now "Bella" (the puppy mill girls). These two are having so much fun and loving their new lives. Here is what they had to say...

First - Raygan


STRSE: Great, let’s start with your favorite place to sleep.

Raygn:  I sleep right next to my mom every night. I love putting my head on the fluffy pillows and dreaming of squirrels. 


STRSE: What are your favorite hobbies? 

Raygn:  Well, since it’s my job to watch over my mom, I follow her everywhere. I make sure she is safe, so I don’t really have time for hobbies. Being the Sergeant of the family, it’s a big responsibility and I take it very seriously. Sergeant Raygn, reporting for duty, daily! Ruff!


STRSE: What are some funny things that you make your family members do?

Raygn:  Mom is a professional canine masseuse and I request “private sessions” all the time. On occasion, I allow her to book other clients, but I dominate her schedule.


STRSE: Who is your favorite person in your family?

Raygn: Mom! She is my best friend. 


STRSE: Do you have any siblings?

Raygn: I do, I have a Yorkie brother but it’s a secret how much I like him.


STRSE: Do you have a favorite toy?

Raygn: Hmm, my humans! Despite all of the toys I have, I like to use mom as a toy. It works out great for me.


STRSE: Do you travel with the family on any excursions?

Raygn: I go everywhere. Mom and I are on an adventure almost daily. 


STRSE: Anything else you want to tell us?

Raygn: I am so happy and I want to thank all STRSE supporters! Your mission, "No Scottie left behind," is truly embedded in each one of them.


STRSE: Thank you for your time, Raygn. We are glad to hear that you are loving life.

Raygn: Great chatting with you, Lisa. Follow-up if you need anything. As you can see I am in the middle of this bone. Ruff!

STRSE: Raygn, thanks for sitting down with us. We are interested in what you have been up to. Do you mind if we ask you a few questions? 

Raygn: Happy to chat, away. 


Second Bella


STRSE: We just met with Raygn and she is doing great! We want to ask you the same questions we asked her, if you don't mind?

Bella: I am so glad, love her! Happy to answer any questions, Lisa but you'll need to hurry, I am in the middle of playing.


STRSE: We can run through these quickly. I know how important play time is. Lets start with your favorite place to sleep?

Bella: I have this amazing red and black plaid bed. It’s so fancy. 


STRSE: What are your favorite hobbies? 

Bella:  Oh, gosh where do I begin?! I love chasing balls and wrestling with my fur-sister. Oh, and running at top speed then sliding down the hallway, have you ever tried that? If you haven’t, you must! Um, I chase frogs and I eat…yea, snacks are my favorite. Oh wait, and napping, love napping. Yup, that’s about it! 


STRSE: What are some funny things that you make your family members do?

Bella: Hmm, I wake up every morning at 6:30 am to make sure mom is up. I know she appreciates it. I also like to practice yoga, downward dog is my favorite position. I try to get mom to yoga-out with me.


STRSE: Do you have any siblings?

Bella: I do! I have a Scottie sister, Becks. Becks, say "hi!"


STRSE: Who is your favorite person in your family?

Bella: Mom! She is my best friend. Oh, and Becks my fur-sister, she is cool.


STRSE: Do you have a favorite toy?

Bella: Yup! I love loud toys. If its sounds like a pig or a duck, I go crazy. I can’t help myself. Oh, and balls...lots of balls!


STRSE: Do you travel with the family on any excursions?

Bella: I am chauffeured around town a lot. I like to stay local.


STRSE: Anything else you would like to say?

Bella: Just a huge shout-out to STRSE for saving my life. I am the luckiest girl and love my family. Ruff!


STRSE: Thanks, Bella. We love to hear you are doing so well.

Bella: No problem, gotta go! want to dig a hole while mom talks to STRSE?
