In Washington State, firefighters rescue Maggie the Scottie after she fell down a cliff and got stuck in a blackberry bush on a rock ledge 70 feet above the water. According to the report in the Islands Sounder, responders used well-practiced rope rescue operations.
Does that mean they hooked Maggie up with a rope and pulled her out of the bush? It’s hard to believe they lowered her in the other direction, but what do I know? Maybe some informed readers can enlighten the Scottie News.
Meanwhile in Edinburgh, a Scottie with a skin condition is rescued from the streets and the Scottish SPCA is appealing for information about the dog now known as Dougie.
In Grimsby, England, a handsome Scottish Terrier known as Bomber survived a house fire thanks to his neighbours.
From the archives of the Scottish Terrier and Dog News, here are more Scotties, who’ve made headlines.
