Being wheaten...


So, I’m wheaten...

In colour that is. It’s not the usual Scottie colour. Most people, when they think of Scottish Terriers they think of Black ones. Like this guy...




Some people prefer black Scotties, I’m not sure why, I’m just as (if not more) handsome than a black Scottie.

My human, when she was looking for me was contacted by my breeder, and she said, my human remembers. “He’ll be wheaten, I hope that’s okay”. My human said that was fine, a Scottie’s a Scottie after all!!

But, maybe some people don’t feel that way.

Sometimes people think I’m a westie, which (no offence to all the westies out there) gets on my nerves! Westies are very white. I’m not.

My human says I’m the colour of a meringue; white down the bottom, but golden on top.



And you know what?

I think I’m just as sweet as a meringue!

  2. You don't look like a Westie at all!

    Your coloring is simply gorgeous! No offense to the black Scotties - but you have to admit, you are unique in being a meringue color!

  6. Kenzie gets the opposite. "OOOOOH, two Scotties, are they calm dogs?". Not Kenzie when someone calls him a Scottie. It's a major accomplishment here when someone recognizes me as a Scottie. I just don't know many others here in Arizona.

  7. Wheaten Scotties are Pawsome. My doggie Mom is a Wheaten Scottie. Her name is Scarlet. Somehow I turned out Black. Go figure.

  9. Oh yes, Dougall, you are a Scottie through and through! You look super sweet in that photo :) And, we get it being annoyed: no offense to you Scotties, but us Schnauzer get mistaken for Scotties all the time and it's annoying that they see a beard and think there is only one type of small dog with a beard!

  12. Dougall you and your Mom will be happy to know that you're not alone in people thinking you were a Westie--We had someone ask us if Todd was going to turn black .... And the someone else asked if he was a 'real' Scottie--I didn't get that, because he's always seemed real to me! :-) But I love the Wheaten color and for us, it just means that Todd matches the Goldens, just a little bit and both of you are just as handsome as a black Scottie and much easier to take a picture of!! :-)

  13. Dougall, you could be purple and it wouldn't matter to me, I think you are very handsome! I think wheaton Scotties are just as special as black ones. You are special no matter what.

  20. Being wheaten makes you very distinguished! And will always give you an awesome conversation starter since not too many people know Scotties aren't just black.

  23. You are that sweet! I'm a kind of unusual color for my breed too. When people think of miniature schnauzers they think of salt & pepper coloring, not black.
