WHAT COLOR IS A WHEATEN SCOTTIE?

Some of you have commented
on the colors of the Sweet Babes.

The media portrays Scotties
as all being black.
It just tickles our Mom
when she can find something
with a
Wheaten colored Scottie
on it.

The AKC recognizes 6 colors of Scotties,
but Dr. T. Allen Kirk in his book,
This is the Scottish Terrier
states there are 10 distinct colors
ranging from
black, being the darkest, to
wheaten, being the lightest.

To see our post about Scottie colors

Sometimes when people see us out
with our Peeps,
they ask what kind of dogs we are
(well not Lilly)
and when Mom tells them we are
Wheaten Scottish Terriers,
they want to argue with her that
Scottish Terriers are all black.
Sometimes she thinks she should
carry our AKC registration papers
in our little tartan bags
just so she could show them!



You can see the difference
in the colors of
The Sweet Babes.
They range from "peanut-butter"
to very lightly "toasted marshmallow".
Their color will darken as they age,
but they will never, ever, ever be black.



Little Guthrie is just a tad
darker in color
than Kilts and Bonnie.
When they are adults,
they will probably
all be the same color.


Jock and Fergus
are the "peanut-butter" babies
in this litter -
they will both be
about the same color
as our handsome, red king, Ruairi.

This synchronized pair are
Kilts and Bonnie -
they are the lightest puppies.
The camera fools you into
thinking that one is larger than the other
when in reality there is only
about an ounce difference
in their weight.


And these triplets are
Jazzi, Lynzi and Mackie
(in no certain order)


But when you put them all together
against Carrleigh,
you can see the differences
in their color.

And that they all have little
"muscle-butts"


just like their handsome father, Piper.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh, Ruairi
and
The Sweet Babes

Thanks for the puppy fix.....beautiful babies. I was going to come visit last week, but was surprised when my time ran out and I didn't get to do all those things I had planned. You might have been missing one of those babies if I had of stopped in.....how do you think they would get along with us Havanese?

Oh those pictures are so cute! And, We thank you so much for educating everybody about Scottie colors. People can be so, well, rude, can't they? YOU know what color they are!

People look at me sometimes and think I'm 10, when I'm really 5 because of my mottled brindle-ness.

I've always said that scottie puppies look like little bears. The wheatens look like little blond bears! So cute!!! Wish I could be there to hold them!!!

Sue said...

I must admit, before I met you I didn't know that Scotties came in so many shades. I knew about black and I'd seen some about the color of Ruairi. I've learned a lot about your breed. Thanks.

No matter what their color, my Lee just loves to feel the fur right under and beside the nose. Lee says it feels like the velveteen rabbit. I let her pet me there. She bets Guthrie is really velvet soft.
