About the Book
Nessie the Scottie, named for the legendary Loch Ness monster from which she quite possibly descended, bounded into the Sandweiss family from a rescue in Allegan, Michigan, when she was eight weeks old. In the twelve short years that followed, Nessie filled their home with chaos, laughter, and wonder. Possessing the face of an innocent angel and the stealth of a jewel thief, this wheaten Scottish Terrier wrapped everyone she met around her paw, while refusing to learn the meaning of the word No.

These funny and touching tales celebrate the irrepressible terrier spirit and the unconditional love that grows between humans and their beloved canine companions.


“If you like sweet dogs, if you like sweet writing, you will love this sweet book.”
- Edward Grinnan, author of Always By My Side and The Promise of Hope
“For anyone who’s ever loved and been loved by a dog, this intimate story of Nessie and her adventures will ring true. Sandweiss lovingly paints a generous portrait of her mischievous and beloved companion, as well as the resounding effects of the eventual embodied loss we all must reckon with.”
- Alyce Miller, author of Sweet Love and Skunk
“This engaging and endearing book is not just about a special little dog, but also her intrepid and devoted human companions. Lee Ann Sandweiss brings Nessie to life so we can all come to love her, too.”
- Sylvia R. Apple, author of Fergus: Memoirs of a Scottish Terrier
