When the third weekend in May rolls around, it’s time for the Door County Scottie Rally in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin.
This year we had a pirate theme.
Despite the threat of rain and cold temperatures, the rally remained undaunted.

The Terrier Tech tent housed some of the workshops you could participate in if you liked.
Although FB puts us in touch with many Scottie people, the rally presents opportunity to meet them in person, old and new. We are always glad to see our friends from Saint Louis Scottish Terrier Rescue. They work tirelessly year round for the good of Scotties.

Tracie Lange is my new BFF. She has been a friend of our FB page and looked us up while at the rally. She took good care of me while Mom and Dad watched Brother take part in the barn hunt and earth dog activities. (photo borrowed from Tracie Lange)
Although we have known Australian Beril Murray for several years, Mom got to meet Lynne Spencer of Rocky Creek Farms for the first time. Mom says a visit to Rocky Creek is on her bucket list. (photo by Jason Rhodes)
We love our Wisconsin friends, Kathy, Deb and Connie. It was Deb and Kathy’s first rally. They had a blast. You remember, we stopped to see them in Tomah before continuing to Door County.
Around Scottie headquarters, you could make a step stone,
visit the pet psychic,
get a massage like Ainsley here,
or rest for a bit in the Rainbow Bridge Memorial garden, one of Mom’s favorite places.
The rally is also a benefit for the heath and rescue of Scotties and monies raised through donations, auctions, and raffles go to this purpose.
In the silent auction, Mom won the pictures by Kate Wood and Elena Adam which were donated in the memory of Ruffles de Scottie.
Friday evening ended with Brother winning the Rum Runner race and reclaiming his title of “Fastest Scottie”. Too bad they don’t have a ‘fetch contest’; I would win it paws down. Woof! ~ Lucy
