The San Francisco News Times reports: “Arlo, a Scottish Terrier, sports a clan tartan in wool fleece. This tartan plaid is fringed for a couture look and the Highland Sheriff of Nottingham is pistol-packing and punctuating the look is a red wool cowboy hat. He is Bonnie McGregor and Rich Chamber’s dog. Haute Dog SF a fashion show of San Francisco’s fashion aware dogs held Friday February 3, 2012 at the San Francisco Design Center. The show included 60+ dogs taking to the runway to strut their stuff. The event was a benefit for Canine Companions.”
A few weeks back we posted a photo of a very handsome Wheaten Scottish Terrier dressed in traditional garb for Halloween. Many readers inquired where they could buy a similar outfit and, in response, two other readers suggested Puppy dog Plaids.
