I am a West Highland White Terrier!!! by 

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

True story:

I recall taking my last Westie, Roddy to a big park for a romp.
Sitting on the bleachers, sat a mature woman in a warm cardie and her son pointing at my dog.

The following conversation played out over 20 minutes or so:

They said in the their best Glaswegian accents..Ah know that dog, it’s from Scotland!
I nodded my head and the woman said,
Now let me see, that’s a wee Scottie!
her son said "Neh Mom, that’s a Cairn!
I said NO!
She then said A Skye Terrier then?
her son – no Mom, that’s a Border Collie,
No boy, a Collie!
NO I said!
How about a Sheltie then?
A Bearded Collie?
No Mom, a Border Terrier!!!
It is a Gordon Setter? she asks or mehbe a Golden Retriever?
Oh Mom, I know, it’s a Dandie Dinmont!
Nooooo I say!
Ok..then it has to be…a Scottish Deerhound she said with finality.

Nooooo, I said…he’s a West Highland White Terrier!!!!

The smiled knowingly at each other and remarked how they could have forgotten that.
After a few seconds she looked at me and said: “Och could I have forgotten that? Of course!!!!! The one on the Drambuie label” LOLOL!

    Adorable Roddy. A cute westie. Well captured.
  • Thank you!! Although Roddy passed away at the ripe old age of 16 and a half..Brody is now 2 and quite a piece of work!

    So, lassie, what’s a Drambuie, eh? LOL! I’m guessing that it’s a line of clothing in the stores, but what do I know! Cute, anyway, both the photo and the story!

  • Never had Drambuie?? You haven’t lived!! It’s an upscale Malt Whiskey liqueur and goes down very nice..although Drambuie is made in the area where Westies are bred…it’s B/W Scotch bottle where you find the Scottie and the Westie together..not Drambuie. Thanks for the fav!

    Unbelievable!!Usually they say ’It’s a White Scottie’.Drambuie is nice but I prefer a nice single malt whisky.

  • I’ll take the Drammy (which was Brod’s first name for 24 hours) but they couldn’t recollect the B/W Scotch. In fact, that was the name of my first Westie…Whisky! and he was Scottish to boot!

    White Scottie? Ha!
