Reader Sharon wrote yesterday to point out a timely and important Scottish Terrier connection that the Scottie News had failed to pick up on. There appears to be a Scottish Terrier on the cover of Amy Winehouse’s first album, Frank.
Apparently Amy Winehouse was a huge fan of Frank Sinatra and named her dog after him. There seems to be debate, however, over whether the album name, Frank, references the singer, the dog, both, or the act of being frank as in honest.
Unfortunately, the Scottish Terrier News has been unable to turn up any more information on the cover dog. We can’t confirm either who he is or what became of him. What we can confirm is that Amy Winehouse had a history of troubled relationships with pets.
