This is good news:
Walkers, the Scottish Highlands’ bakery of the world’s most popular shortbread, is honoring the Scottish Terrier with a new specialty pack of Walkers Shortbread Scottie Dog shaped shortbread cookies. These fun, delicious cookies will be introduced at the 57th Summer Fancy Food Show on July 10-12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC (booth #4900).
Walkers’ Scottie Dog cookies are bound to win the hearts of Scottie dog owners everywhere with their adorable shapes and their award-winning, buttery rich taste. The distinctive Scottie dog is instantly recognizable, with a small, muscular body, erect ears, shaggy coat and long beard and eyebrows.
Scotties are known to be brave, loyal, feisty and playful. They have been faithful companions to three U.S. Presidents, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and George W. Bush. Queen Victoria and Jacqueline Onassis are just two of the famous women who have had them as pets.
Somehow, Walkers seems to have forgotten to send complimentary samples to the Scottish Terrier News world headquarters.
Update: Many thanks to Sheena, who found out more about this product and kept everyone updated in the comments. Because of her hard work, we have not only this picture of Transformer Scottie, but even more info from Walkers on how to buy their new shortbread line.
