Kentucky congressman caught in Scottie Scandal

Following this report in The Hill yesterday (scroll down to the second article), Kentucky Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-Ky) is in hot water with bloggers who think he’s wasting taxpayer money by having aides walk his Scottish Terrier, Bosley, and his Jack Russell dog, Nigel.

In the comments over at Bluegrass report, even Bosley the Scottie gets in trouble.

“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!

Congressman, this is Kentucky, and unless you have a blue-tick at home named Cooter or something like that, you should be impeached…lol.”

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

May 31 Update: The Scottish Terrier and Dog News team prepare to bring you the fallout from the Congressional Scottie scandal. Apologies to readers who were sad to see the Daily Scottie Video pre-empted by TerrierGate.

  1. I must strongly disagree with the gentleman who believes Scotties are not an appropriate Kentucky dog. The terrier has a long and storied existence in the southern states.

    The Bluetick is fine, but it will never rival the noble Scottie in my old Kentucky home.

  2. I’m sorry, who settled the Appalachian mountains? English, Irish and, wait for it, THE SCOTS!!!! What better dog to represent the stubborness, intelligence, perseverance, and loyalty of Kentuckians than the great terrier from across the ocean, the Scottish Terrier?
