Bonnie Annie Laurie

Bonnie, our proud and fierce Scottish Terrier, rules our world. With four iron paws encased in velvet gloves, she share her home with us. We are grateful.

Recently, we upgraded her sleeping arrangement and got her a new sofa. The back of the sofa is the perfect height to align her with the picture window. Of course, we have also put pillows along the back so that she will be more comfortable sitting there and viewing her realm.

We live to serve her royal self.

Undaunted by vacuüm cleaners or other machinery, she protects us from unrelated dogs that might wander near our property, especially the two mastiffs who live next door.

She saves us from the peril of evil socks and fuzzy blankets, steals those devil paper napkins (she knows the evil that lurks therein).  She will sleep next to us, her big head on our feet, and we know who is in favor today by where she lays her head. She will never sleep on a lap. She is a terrier and her feet need to be in contact with ground in case she needs to launch herself into action.

The Girls and Dad

Since we have a doggy door, she may need to fly out to protect her domain at any moment without warning.

The back of the sofa is Bonnie’s special place, the cushions on the back of the sofa her throne. From her lofty perch, she can see her domain.

I believe she has a secret Facebook account with thousands of friends. I just haven’t been able to prove it yet.

Meet Bonnie Annie Laurie, who loves us enough to let us fulfill her needs.

  1. Aw-w-w-w-w! That is so sweet! Yep, humans are the slaves to pets regardless whether dog or cat. I chuckled at the reference to the doggie door. We, too, have the pet doors for our cats. Two onto the porch on the back of the house and one into the house near our bedroom. Close to our bedroom was not the wisest move, especially when one or both come streaking through the ‘special’ door at 3 am running like ‘if we don’t get in quick, we will be had!’ Blam! Blam! Click! Click! Click! Slide! Crash! 😆


    • When we had even more dogs than we do now, the swack whack bang of the doggie door was nearly constant. We had a couple of hounds who were in and out literally constantly unless they were asleep, which never seemed quite often enough!

      We don’t have cats now because of the doggy door and the wild life, not to mention Route 98 on which we live. I have lost too many cats to cars, racoons, and other hazards. It would be impossible to keep a cat safe because of the flap door and I will NOT let them go out into the woods or up to the road. Far too dangerous. We don’t have a lot of traffic on our road, but what we have comes around the blind turn at dangerously high speed. We have the highest rate of fatal collisions (car vs. inanimate object) in the valley right on our street … known to the cops as “death alley.” I live in genuine fear of dogs getting loose and I couldn’t keep a cat safe, so I’m not going to try. No more crushed kitties for me. Uh uh. Not happening.

  2. Awwww. I love how you’ve given her the throne of window seats. I’ll bet she has a wonderful time each day, gazing out the window.


  3. I LOVE my Wife, Marilyn, creator of these blogs! One more time, I LOVE my dear wife, Marilyn! But — Bonnie Annie Laurie is my SWEETHEART! It is not an illicit affair. She’s the sweetest, funniest and most energetic dog I’ve ever known!!
