Many of you have made the comment
that you love the aroma of puppy breath.
If one could bottle that scent,
they would make millions.
But some Scotties have another aroma
that is on the same level with
sweet puppy breath.
They have a scent
on the top of their head
between their ears,
that is known as
"The Heather Scent".
Mom and Dad had smelled it
on Carrleigh and on Lilly's puppies,
but just thought it was something
they had rubbed against.
But when Mom and Dad first joined
The Scottish Terrier Club of Western Virgina,
one of the founding members
asked if any of their Scotties
had the heather scent.
All at once they knew where this delightful
aroma came from.
They all don't have it
and if they do it's not all the time,
but newborn Scotties seem to exude it.
Carrleigh has it fairly strongly
and occasionally you can smell it on Lilly,
but never on Piper.
If you have a Scottie,
rub it's head and take a whiff.
You might get rewarded
with this sweet aroma.
