The Scottish Terrier and Dog News‘ unofficial New York correspondent filed this report from Animal Haven, an upscale animal adoption centre in the heart of Soho where she took her Scottie to a wine and cheese meet-up. (It’s hearing about stuff like this that makes the Scottie Dog News want to transfer its world headquarters to Manhattan)
Anyway, apparently, the seven West highland Terriers all ganged up on little Savvy, the Scottie puppy. While it is true that Savvy had earlier been bothering the Westies, they did not seem to take into account the fact she was just a baby and showed her little mercy.
Of course, most Scotties are used to being outnumbered by Westies, but — surprisingly, according to AKC registration statistics — West Highlands are only twice as popular as Scottish Terriers. The Scottie News would have thought, based on our own surveys and scenes like the picture above, that there were at least three to four times the number of Westies. What do our readers say? And why are Westies more popular anyway? Is it Black Dog Syndrome? Or are Westies easier going than Scots?
It’s Mittwoch as they say in German, which means time for our new Global Scottish Terrier Report. Today, we look at the situation of Scottish Terriers in Germany, where, unsurprisingly, they like to pose their dogs in cars. Now, can anyone tell us what type of auto it is in which these black and wheaten Bocks Clan Scottish Terriers have been so artfully aranged? For further clues, you’ll find the Bocks Clan home page here.
More information on Scotties in Deutschland can be found — in both English and German — at the Scottish Terrier Förderverein (loose translation = GermanFansofScottishTerriersandLongWords). And if you’re in Germany and want a rescue terrier, check out Scotch Terrier in Not.
The old glass pane in an old door shattered due to age and cold. We’ll be back with all the Scottish Terrier News as soon as we deal with the arctic gale blowing though the Scottish Terrier and Dog News world headquarters.
We’ve had a lot of snow coverage at the Scottish Terrier and Dog News this week, so this goes out to all the Scotties who live in warmer climes — or all those dogs and owners who wish they did. ——————-
