Being the charmer he is, Bas has a few girlfriends around the block, including a little lady called Miss Muffles, to whom he once showed his affection by taking a wee across her hind legs. Together they make a handsome pair, until you realise that Basil perhaps has fewer brain cells.
It was always a dream of mine to take my dogs to the beach and watch them have fun and run all over the place.
This weekend, we finally did!!
We went just for the day to see if they liked it and , well they loved it!!
Downunder Daisy chronicles the life and times of three Scottie girls and their Alpha owner, who live an undisclosed location in Australia. Check it out and learn more about Daisy, Kendra and Bella. Oh yes, and Alpha.
Earlier this week, the Scottish Terrier News featured exclusive video of two Scotties living the high life in Brazil. This weekend, we travel to the Swiss Alps where the celebrated Scottie athlete Hitchcock resides with his clan. Strap on your hiking boots everybody. And if, like me, you don’t have any let’s ask Scottie trainer and hiker extraordinaire, Bettina, to recommend a good pair.
They are the original and only official Scottiish Terrier Mascots for a pipe band in Australia.
I design and make all of their costumes, which are their official ustumes for this job.
By the way – before “anonymous” only has time to whinge – “they are NOT pom poms” – they are a group of very fine feathers!!!!
These costumes take quite some time to put together as there are some built in extras, in case of design theft!!!!
In any case – I do the very best I can with what is available to me, and I do search far and wide!!
This is definitely not the type of beach where you need a coat in the middle of summer. I guess it’s one of the perks enjoyed by Scottie expats like Zorro and Zeeka who make their home in Bahrain. I once met a guy who had brought his Scottish Terrier along to the middle east and he got by by taking the dog for two long walks — one early in the morning and one late at night.
He is the first Scottish Terrier ever to represent his country in an international competition. According to the Zuercher Unterlaender newspaper, Scotties’ short legs make it as hard for them to beat other breeds at agility contests as it is for a plowhorse to win a horse race. Hitch’s owner and coach Bettina Stemmler says, however, “Hitch is an exceptional dog who loves to compete.” Even if winning this and other competitions would be difficult, above all, she just wants to have fun.
Rest assured the Scottish Terrier and Dog News will be cheering for you.
