The Scottish Terrier and Dog News missed this story when it first surfaced late last year. German justice minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger’s Scottie Franzi landed her in trouble with the law when he bit a passerby, who tried to pet him while he was out on a dog walk.
My German’s a bit rusty, but as far as I can tell, the victim filed an official complaint, before things ended up being settled out of court.
According to Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, Franzi, who occasionally accompanies his mistress minister to the national capital Berlin on business, is a loving and harmless dog and the incident in question was just an unfortunate accident.
Apparently the biting was a one-time lapse on the part of Franzi, who often attends meetings with his minister mistress

Since Scottie News is in the process of replacing the “recent comments” feature, you might have missed the following comments, which we’d like to bring to your attention. CBMum had a question re antler chews:
I’m curious about the antler chews – has anyone used them? They sell them at our local pet supply store and say they’re great, and that they don’t make a mess.. I am not convinced as I can foresee the “marrow” inside the antlers flaking off, getting swallowed etc. and wonder how much mess and even choking hazard could result.
That and they’re kind of pricey and we have plenty of other toys, but the dogs are very interested in them…
There’s a store near where we used to live that sells unwrapped bones and antler chews in big bins, kind of like health food stores do with their products. I’m assuming that’s the situation at CBMum’s local pet store and why her dogs’ curiosity is piqued. But the antler chew I bought was packaged and polished like the one shown above, which is probably why it remains ignored.
As a result, I can’t really comment on the more natural antlers. But next time I’m in the old nabe, I’ll look into the pet store to see if they’ve got any of the less processed antlers available and then report back. I remember they were only for sale at certain times of the year after the antlers were shed and they sold out quickly.
Please help need to know what brand of heart worm meds work best on your scotty’s.
My vet can’t get intercepter and I don’t want to use just any brand. So please let me know what you are using. Thank you.
Ginny writes to share some photos of her rescue Scottish Terrier Gimli, who she describes as “a very timid soul but every bit a Scottie.”
Hmm, I guess the timidness explains why he would consent to wear this outfit:
Being Batman helps make up for the kilt — almost:
And there’s nothing like a classic icelandic sweater to show off a buffed-up Scottie bod:

This is the absolute number one dog story as Republicans try to find a way to stop people talking about Mitt Romney and Seamus, the dog he strapped to the roof of his car for a very long road trip. Even the news that Romney saved the life of a Scottish Terrier has done almost nothing to put the Seamus story to rest. And it’s unclear to the Scottie Newsthat this latest salvage attempt is going to have much impact either
“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”
The Scottish Terrier and Dog News thinks this Obama/Romney dog comparison is an apples and oranges situation but let’s take the pulse of our readership:
His coloration is indeed unique but his conformation and character are all Scottie. We were told that his breeder tried to breed specifically to produce wheaten colored Scotties and that all the pups in his litter where in fact wheaten. Wallace’s coloration is undoubtedly from a latent gene combination not seen in Scotties for many, many generations. Wallace is truly one of a kind and he won’t be producing any offspring. He came to us neutered but we would have had it done anyway. We do not place intact Scotties. When they come to rescue they are removed from the breeding pool for their sake and the sake of the breed. We want Wallace and all the rescued Scotties that come to us to be loved and admired for who they are.
