Your Scottish Terrier deserves something suitable to wear both for special occasions and at the dog park.

Batcat reminds Scottie News of Scottish Terrier Batmen

We used to have a black cat at the Scottie News world headquarters, but he never ever would have tolerated this.

This wonderful viral photo of Batcat reminded the Scottie News of some Terrier Batmen that we’ve featured in the past.

Here’s Gimli in April 2012 looking far more macho than in his kilt:

And here are Mollie the Scottie as Robin and Max the Westie as the caped crusader. Over the years, these two have had some fabulous Halloween costumes.

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.”

Dressing up your Scottie for the holidays

Bagpipes for Scottie dogs -- fashion do or don't?

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. With the holidays edging ever closer and many Scottie peeps looking to decorate their dogs along with their houses, we thought we’d delve back into the archives to remind everybody of basic doggie fashion dos and don’ts.

Frankly, the Scottish Terrier and Dog News prefers the minimalist look of the Scottie below. Other examples are shown here and here.

And, finally, here is our primer on kilt wearing for dogs, originally drawn up for Robbie Burns day, but just as relevant for Christmas and New Year’s festivities.


Nepotism at the Scottie News: Bridget’s little bro

Angus dressed for HalloweenAdorable Angus, Bridget’s half brother,  goes minimalist for his first Halloween. He’s hanging out with a human princess so he doesn’t want to upstage her while, at the same time, he must be suitably attired.

Many of you were curious about this other Scottie’s tartan outfit and bagpipes so maybe Angus’ peeps will let us know where he got his accessories.
