The Scottie dog or Scottish Terrier (generally known as the Aberdeen Terrier), was originally a breed from the Highlands of Scotland that had been all referred to as the Skye Terrier. You can find four other modern breeds – the Skye, Cairn, Dandie Dinmont, and West Highland White Terrier (Westie). Scotties certainly are a tough breed with a wiry outer coat and a soft thick undercoat in dark grey or black, whilst the Westie is white. The First Earl of Dumbarton who bred them, nicknamed the particular breed the diehard, after his regiment.
You may think of corgis when you think of small dogs suited for cute jewellery and adored by the Queen. But Queen Victoria was only one of the widely known names to possess a Scottie. Other royal lovers include King James VI of Scotland. When he became James I of England, he sent six terriers – reckoned to be forerunners of the Scottish terrier – for a French monarch for a gift item.
Cute Jewellery Which has a Pedigree Past
Some other high profile dog owners included the 32nd President of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose Scottie \”Fala\” is included with FDR in a statue in Washington, DC, the 43rd President George W. Bush, , Hitler\’s lover Eva Braun, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Ed Whitfield, Rudyard Kipling, President of Poland, Lech Kaczynski and actor Tatum O\’Neal.
Scotties also are recognized for being a playing piece on the board game Monopoly. Labeled as a territorial, feisty dog, they\’re able to make a great watch dog and usually tend to be extremely loyal with their family.
The most famous Skye terrier who is awarded the winning prize in the loyalty stakes was, of course, Greyfriars Bobby of Edinburgh. The legend goes that Bobby belonged to John Gray, who worked for the Edinburgh City Police as a night watchman, and the two were inseparable for approximately two years. When his master died of tuberculosis in 1858 he was laid to rest in Greyfriars Kirkyard in the Old Town of Edinburgh. It\’s stated that Bobby, who outlasted Gray by fourteen years, spent the rest of his life relaxing on his master\’s grave.
When the faithful dog Bobby died in 1872 and could not really buried inside the cemetery itself, since it was and remains consecrated ground, he was buried just inside the entrance of Greyfriars Kirkyard. Everyone was so touched by the story of the faithful dog that tourists to Edinburgh and also the kirkyard increased. A statue of him was raised at a fountain and it is still a favourite tourist attraction today, outside of the Greyfriars Bobby Bar. Unusual jewellery depicting Bobby is among the cute jewellery designs selling very well in Scotland.
Even so, you will find a more modern view that this dog, that is certainly feisty, had been a graveyard dog that was a stray fed by tourists who thought he was maintaining a vigil. The tale absolutely kept the visitors coming. There may have been two Bobbys when a younger one substituted the first terrier which died. Regardless of the reality about Bobby and his master, it\’s a very good story which will keep people interested to this day, while many films have been made recounting the story, or adaptations of it.
Scotties are a little different from your Skye terrier and so are one of the more successful breed of dogs at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show with a recent best in show in 2010. They had been primarily bred to seek out and eradicate vermin on farms and also hunt badgers and also foxes in the Highlands of Scotland. Scotties are territorial, attentive, quick moving and lively, perhaps even more so than several other terrier breeds. They actually are a wonderful subject for cute jewellery and unusual jewellery. You may add the Scottish dog charm to other animal motifs designed by Ola Gorie. These include the cheeky puffin or lovely birds in flight.
