Today being Oscars day, it’s a fitting time to pay tribute to  Whiskybae Tartan Tearose (July 6, 1997 – February 12, 2011) who was better known as Whiskie.

Her owner Ken writes:

After 13 years, 7 months and 6 days, Whiskie has passed on after living a full life. She arrived at our home in January 1998 and hid under the coffee table for the first week or so. Gradually she came around and, at age 2, she began agility lessons and developed self-confidence. During the next ten years, Whiskie traveled and competed in agility trials in all of the “Lower 48” states. Between agility trials, she appeared in some retail catalogs and an internet commercial. With that exposure, she then appeared in an independent movie, “Bit Parts”. A couple of years later, she played the part of George W. Bush’s Barney in Oliver Stone’s movie “W.”

Whiskie will be sorely missed by us and her kennel mates, Chivas and Cutty.

Here’s the Scottish Terrier News’ past coverage of Whiskie’s films, Bit Parts and W.

RIP, Whiskie.
