From the dog news archives

In search of dog news, the Scottie News‘ special investigative unit recently stumbled across this item from Google’s historical archives:

Uh, oh, we thought. This looks like a variation on the destroyer-sent-to-pick-up-Fala myth that FDR had to address in his famous speech.

Luckily, once we clicked through to the original source, we discovered, it wasn’t President Franklin Roosevelt, but rather his son, Elliott, and the dog involved was a bull mastiff not a Scottish Terrier. Phew!

Then we remembered that this dog had a history of trouble and had, in fact, once attacked Fala. It seems like trouble followed him around.
