Is Harley, age 19, the oldest Scottish Terrier?

The Scottie News found Harley’s story at the Scottish Terrier Emergency Care Scheme (STECS). We’ve never heard of a Scottie living to the ripe old age of 19 before, but it makes sense he hails from Fife.

Hmmm…I'm trying to think of some kind of analogy with Samson and his long hair here..?? Well anyway, good for Harley!

I have a friend who has a scotty, his name is Baxter.
Baxter lives in New Jersey and will turn 20 in May of this year. He still acts like a puppy!!
