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?
Update: We now have video from the event
