A Scottie Takes Crufts!!!

OH MY DAWGNESS! Thanks to my correspondent across the pond, Oban, I’m happy to report that A SCOTTIE HAS WON BEST IN SHOW AT CRUFTS.

This happened last night, but what the hey, it’s breaking news to moi!

And, I believe this is the same bee-you-ti-ful Scottie who took best in breed at Westminster last month. And, I think she’s now retired. Good for her!

Oh boy. WHAT A DAY! AND, Oban tells me, it’s the first time a Scottie has won since 1929.

Now, here’s a glimpse of MY award-winning mug:

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a 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. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Mr. Handsome Mug: We are happy for Knopa and her team (Rebecca, Doreen, Vandra, Michael & Marina). She deserved this win! She showed her Scottitude by staring down the cameras while standing on the BIS stand. But you and all our Scotties are BIH !! BIH = Best in Heart.
