A Scottie Skunk? Not Again…

Oh no. Not again.

Here I am, minding my own business. When the “skunk” rears its ugly head. See, I tawdled over to the Scottish Terrier News to read the events of the day, when what makes headlines? A SKUNK Halloween costume. (But I can’t blame a publication for trying to keep people in the know…)

The indignity of it all. It’s not enough I have to endure being called a skunk just about every other time I meet new people, now somebody’s gone and made a COSTUME for a black Scottie to turn into a skunk one night a year.

At least it’s only one night.

Here's my tuxedo.

Then the really ignorant of the species spy my glorious white chest and belly and think THAT’S what a skunk looks like.

Honestly, if I’m called a skunk one more time, I think I’ll just hurl. Yeah, that’s what I’ll do. Hurl. Green beans and all. That’d be pretty.

Listen, if you’re tempted to dress up your Scottie like a skunk for Halloween, just don’t come knocking on my door.

What You Learned Today:

  • I’m very offended when people call me a skunk just because I have white markings.
  • My peeps get very offended when people call me a skunk.
  • Now somebody’s gone and made a skunk costume for black dogs on Halloween.
  • I implore you: GIVE IT UP.
  • In my name, just boycott this stuff would you please?
  • Somebody outta make a tuxedo costume for Halloween and model it after moi.
  • By the way, in Scotland, where I’m from, All Hallow’s Eve marks the beginning of Celtic New Year.
  • Now that’s cause for celebration.
  • Without a skunk costume.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 12 years old in March 2018. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    I saw that skunk too and do you think he was not really going for the ‘skunk’ look but was perhaps going to a ‘Stuart’ look…
    Fergie thinks it is a good look for you, not so much for the ‘coppydogs’..
    Fergie is dazzled by your white markings since all black Scotties look the same, and here you get to wear a ‘Tuxedo’ every day..

    wear your white and be proud!!!

    Just tell them the truth-you’re markings are very rare and sought after. It could be worse-Dalmations are called leopards because of the spots and leopards are c-a-t-s.

    He made “terrier bread” yesterday while watching sports. When he tries a new recipe and it bombs, he feeds it to you know who. I love it. Don’t hurl-it is a waste of food. The mention of food makes me hungry-I’ll go beg for more terrier bread.

  5. Georgie B says:

    Mum said,,,If I ever find a Scottie with white like Stuart…it will be hers..( like we need 5 dogs fighting for food around here…)

  6. Kyla says:

    This one was a sourdough dark rye. It didn’t rise enough. Terrier bread comes in many flavors but any one flavor is only used once. The common thread of terrier bread is that She doesn’t like it and He throws out the recipe and we terriers WIN!

  7. Joan says:

    My thought was same as Georgie B, that it was an attempt at a Stuart costume.

    SHE thought the skunk costume was cute! But WE didn’t. We get called lots of things, but never a skunk!
