Little Scottish Highlander


Proudly profiled in his kilt, yes proud
As he listened to the bagpipes playing very loud
His little body danced to the music of the Clans.

He longed to see those Highlands he had never seen,
Born in another land, mind on where he had not been,
The glorious Highlands of Bonny Scotland!

~Poem by me, with apologies to Rabbie Burns~

I took this photo back in 2009 and you may remember it as I posted it at the time.  I attended the annual Scottish Festival a few miles away.  There was a Dog Parade and all the participants were Scottish breeds in origin.  Some were dressed up in theme and this little dog even had a miniature set of bagpipes on his back.

  7. The little dog is adorable in his kilt. I love that poem, that describes how I feel when I hear bagpipes and the music of my ancestors.
