Bosley, the Scottish Terrier dog at the centre of a scandal, was caught on camera last Friday in the basement of Congress’ Rayburn Building. He and his Jack Russell companion, Nigel, were being walked by their congressman owner, Ed Whitfield, who told reporters his wife was away. Presumably, she normally walks the dogs — outside.
“Bosley? Nigel? My….what a bunch of latte-lapping lapdogs. I’d bet they’d like to take a trip to Bloomingdales to eat truffles!

Update: A few of our loyal Scottish Terrier News readers have requested we post a link to the Bluetick Coonhound. Happy to oblige.
