While Nikon’s been getting a lot of press lately for its “heartography” dog camera experiment, its collar contraption is not yet for sale. That means if you feel inspired to turn your pet into a movie-maker of photographer, you’ll have to go with one of the dog camera harnesses already out there. Luckily, this includes the GoPro Fetch, which is the best-rated of them all, and works with the hugely popular GoPro camera.
While the big dogs can wear the cameras mounted on their chests as well as their backs, that obviously wouldn’t be practical for smaller breeds. The GoPro Fetch harness is fully adjustable to fit dogs from 10 – 120 lbs. (7 – 54 kg). It’s fully padded at all adjustment points to ensure your pet’s comfort as they give you their dog’s eye view of the world.
Washable + water friendly, Fetch holds up to swimming, splashing, mud and more. It’s designed to work with the GoPro waterproof cameras.
There’s a great customer review on Amazon, complete with video of the user trying out the GoPro Fetch harness on his dog.
How do they work on Scottish Terriers? The Scottie News has not yet discovered any Scottie Spielbergs, but we did find some humans using GoPro cameras to document the lives of their faithful companions.

Unfortunately, the Scottish Terrier and Dog News did not succeed in meeting its Kickstarter funding goal so there will only be sporadic Scottie News in 2014. In honour of those who pledged to fund the project, here are just some of their wonderful dogs.
Sindee of Shady Nook Scottie Farm writes: “It’s NOT a magic trick, and that’s no bunny in the hat… It’s a SCOTTIE !!!”
Here are handsome Harry and lovely Lola from the eponymously named book series:
Susan’s four Scotties are Gus, Gracie, Barkley and Maizie.
Susan writes: “I have a whole wall of portraits of all my dogs. Some were painted by my Dad, a fairly well known artist. John McClelland.” Scottie News is in awe.
Calysta (10 months) and Ozzy (2.5 yrs) exploring the snow in Long Island where they live with their peeps, Julie and Ron.
Suzanne writes: “Rory is the little one. McDivot is the bigger scottie. He was rescued. Was found dumped at a golf course.” Scottie News writes: “Well, I suppose if you have to be dumped, a golf course or country club is probably about the best drop-off you could get under the very terrible circumstances.”

Below are Bronwyn’s two rescues, Lennon and McCartney. Sadly, both of them died last year but they will always remain in her heart. She hopes to adopt another rescue this year … if she can convince her husband.
McCartney, a silver brindle, is shown at a 2011 Blessing of the Animals. “He was a saintly low-key Scottie who loved everyone,” writes Bronwyn. “He was rescued in Jan. 2006 from the Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta, Ga. and died at the ripe old age of 14 of renal failure.”
Wheaten “Lennon was my happy, sassy girl. Gorgeous and personal, Lennon charmed everyone she met. She was from the Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast. She died of liver disease at the age of 4.”
RIP, Scotties Lennon and McCartney. You made beautiful music together.
By now, you may have heard that the Oxford English Dictionary named “selfie” the word of the year for 2013.
Since it’s Wednesday, we’ll start with some selfies with West Highland Terriers.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the important stuff. Did the gal above on the left remind you of anyone?
There’s also another Scottie selfie of this crazy dog lady back when she was investigating the Congressional Scottish Terrier scandal in 2007.
But the absolutely most adorable ever “Selfie with Scottie” award goes to the very photogenic Mirela:
