Westies and their fluffy white coat...
This is Archie - he’s a wee scamp. With his tartan bow tie and big brown eyes he looks like butter wouldn't melt – but as all Westie owners will tell you – he's got a streak of mischief in him a mile wide! The Scottish West Highland Terrier features on a number of my designs, and there’s many reasons why as a Terrier, he’s earned his place as one of Scotland’s most iconic dogs.

White West Highland Terrier’s were bred in Scotland to clear out farms, work houses and barns of vermin - and their snow white fur helped to keep them visible and safe. They’re built to be able to squeeze through small spaces, such as the underground tunnels that they’d be sent down. They are very verbal dogs (or noisy wee things if you prefer!) as they were bred to have a loud bark so that farmers could hear them underground. fudge tin with scottish westie by gillian kyle

Greyfriar’s Bobby The heartwarming story of Greyfriar's Bobby, a faithful Skye Terrier who watched over his owner's grave until he died himself,  is well known all across Scotland and further afield. Bobby’s statue in Edinburgh is a lovely reminder of the devoted loyalty between the dog and his owner. I'm a massive terrier fan as they've got personality by the ton!
