It seems that being naughty exuberant doesn’t disqualify you from winning Best of Breed at Westminster.
The Scottie News would like to congratulate Clementina, a true terrier, on winning this year’s Scottish Terrier crown.
Felicitations too to GCH Friendship Hill Stars And Stripes, the first dog in the video who won Best of Opposite Sex, and GCH Mcvan’s Be Bop Baby, the fourth contestant, who takes home the Award of Merit.

She rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Unfortunately the video is no longer available. Above is just an unclickable photo (screen grab).
Thanks to Jessica, dancing Scottie videographer, for the tip. Here’s her dog Cameron on her/his birthday. The Scottish Terrier and Dog News is impressed with how (s)he resists the cake. I would have a really hard time doing that.
All eyes were on Sadie today as she toured Manhattan. The New York Daily News has a great report (no longer available) on how she upstaged Leonardo DiCaprio on Good Morning America, visited with the ladies of The View and allowed admirers to stroke her silky beard.
The Scottish Terrier and Dog News will track down more links after dinner.
American readers, you can catch Sadie on the View here. It’s Hulu so that means the rest of the world — including the editorial staff in the Toronto world headquarters of the Scottie News — can’t see it unless you’re a super hacker type who knows how to surf the net using proxies.
And please, Sadie and Gabriel, don’t forget we knew you back when.
Enjoy your moment. You deserve it.
Here’s the official AP video which shows the PETA protestors who didn’t make it on to TV. I’m a bit surprised that PETA is advocating adoption given that they’re against all pets and is involved in high-kill shelters.
