Scottie News’ First Ever GIF and more fabulous photos from readers

Scottish Terrier GIF

Thanks to Laura, for sending the first ever GIF to the be featured on the Scottie News. Those head-turners are Bella (l) and Ceilidh. And in keeping with the black-and-white theme, below we have Piper (wheaten) and Percy, who are a year and a half old, and look as cute from behind as they do head-on.

Blame Canada if the next two black-and-whites are a little seasonally inappropriate. Things were super busy at the Toronto world headquarters of the Scottie News and we, cough, cough, overlooked the odd email or two. Give it up for Carol’s two handsome Scotties, who hail from L.A.

Robin of Locksley Scottish Terriers sends a black and white video:

And now for some basic black, please allow the Scottie News to introduce you to a couple of Oregon Duck fans.  Flora (left, 1 year old) and John-Paul (4 years old).  They’re just back from the groomers and all decked out in Oregon Duck regalia.

Also hailing from Oregon is Avery’s Mr. Chips O’Toole, shown here waiting patiently for his treat. He’s based in Portland.

Scottie News is not sure where this mother/daughter Scottie team make their home. Mom is Berksha (6 years) and daughter is Lenka (6 months).

More water. Shawnay’s Tartan quenches his thirst.

Fergus aka Batdog! has the dubious distinction of having appeared on Dog Shaming along with Scottie News. But given his background as a survivor of the biggest puppy mill seizure in Canadian history, maybe his little lapse is understandable.

His person says Fergus is his hero and “the fact that his ears make the Bat symbol is just an awesome bonus…;)”

From super hero to sports hero, Sally’s Fairley — shown below at an Auburn tailgate last fall — was named after former AU defensive lineman Nick Fairley.

Justin is a bit of mystery man. All, we know about him is this was his first party.

Aidan is also another good looking mystery man.

Yeah, Aidan!

RIP, Noah, who died in June 2012 at age eight. He’s very much missed:

So too is the late great Schatzi from South Africa.

Last June, Scottie News featured a tribute to Julie’s late dog LuLu, who also happened to be my girl Bridget’s mother. As part of the great cycle of life, Julie got a new Scottie, Baxter, last fall to keep LuLu’s daughter Flora company. Julie wrote:

Little Baxter is now four months old, and has been an amazing addition to our family. Flora was a little miffed with us in the beginning but they have become good friends. It’s so sweet to see them snuggling up together, and now that Baxter has all of his shots, seeing him out walking with Flora. It’s also heartwarming to see Flora go from “daughter” to “mother”, as Baxter now follows her head and looks up to her, the way she did to Lulu. It’s really heartwarming.

Here’s Baxter is in all his adorable puppiness:

Can you believe the border guards hassled this little guy when he immigrated to Canada?

Danie writes with news of another family addition:

This is a picture of Mac (Macgregor) 2 months after I received him from the New England Scottie Rescue. He is the happiest little soul on earth!  Pampered Pets of Delaware had just given him his first haircut and underneath all that curly mess was a great looking scottie.  I didn’t care what he ended up looking like – he has a personality that is unbelievably sweet and cuddlely (is that even a word?!) I’m his and he is mine!!!  His girlfriend Lovey keeps him going all day long running all over house.  I was giving them 2 of everything but they rather have 1 thing and steal it away from each other!

What else? Dorman sent this holiday animation, which much to my eternal shame is being posted late. But let’s just pretend it’s for Robbie Burns Day — and early.

Dorman also sent some Scottish Terrier rock carvings. He writes, “My first and last impression is that this rock carving is a Scottie on the back of the cow…” Hmm, Rorschach test, anyone?

Look closely

Scottie News hopes we’ve finally gotten all our readers’ dog photos up.

We are trying to set up a system to allow readers to post their own photos, but it will take a while to get it in place. We’ll let you know when it’s ready.

  1. I’m a bad mommy and forgot to tell you about Aidan! He’s a brindle Scottie, we live in New Orleans, and in that photo he is 4 1/2 years old. That is his notorious “avoiding the camera” pose although whenever we go out he gets fauned over and soaks up all the attention. Thank you for posting his picture!
