Wheaten Scotties

cropped-untitled-design-33.png
When it comes to Scotties, most people imagine a fiesty, short-legged terrier with quizzical eyebrows, a distinctive jaw, and a black coat. Actually, they come in three colors: black, wheaten, and brindle. The advertising industry quickly saw the alluring power of this adorable breed, often depicting a black and white duo on tea towels, whiskey bottles, shortbread boxes, and salt-and-pepper shakers. The white dog on the Black and White blended whiskey bottle is a West Highland Terrier, but the white Scottie myth endured. All-white coats are non-existent in Scotties (though a closely clipped wheaten may appear white). To complicate matters, a third coat color exists, brindle, a sort of grizzled black/brown, sometimes laced with silver hairs; but today, I'm taking a closer look at Scotties with light coats.

Lessons from My Garden

 
And suddenly it's early summer and the hydrangeas are in full bloom. They add color, grace, and a certain playfulness to the yard. They remind me to retain a child-like joy. As I drag the hose around, sprinkling every living thing, I take little sips, feeling the cold water run down my chin.

Tour a Scottie-Themed Camper

Last Saturday, I attended the Scottish Terrier Rescue Picnic and Fun Day, and a delightful feature included a Scottie-themed camper, owned by glamping enthusist and Scottie lover Diane Rawson Hopkins. Shall we take a peek?

Annual Scottish Terrier Picnic and Fun Day

Every June, an extraordinary event happens in my neck of the woods. The Scottish Terrier Rescue of Tennessee hosts a picnic and silent auction at the local fairground. The magic begins with a Scottie march and bagpipes, followed by a potluck and silent auction.

Foodie Friday and Everything Else

Happy First Day of June! Bit by bit, I'm working on the yard. The time has come to finally start adding life to the potting shed. Won't you join me in the shade for a glass of lemonade?
