I’m always a sucker for Christmas ornaments — or anything, really — featuring animals, and I found some really cute ornaments recently with “Scottie dogs,” officially known as Scottish terriers.
Who doesn’t love Scottie dogs? Whether they remind you of Lady and the Tramp’s Jock, or if you’re like me and remember Angus from the picture book Angus and the Ducks that I had as a child, you have to admit that they’re pretty cute dogs. They are also known to be independent, intelligent, and fiercely loyal. Despite their small size, they have powerful barks that make them excellent watchdogs.
I did some research and discovered that Shirley Temple, Franklin Roosevelt, and George W. Bush were all Scottie dog lovers. If you are one as well — or know someone who is — you might want to check out these 9 ornaments to include in your Christmas decorating or gift-giving this December.
What’s great about this realistic-looking, hand-painted resin Scottie dog ornament is its versatility. Yes, you can hang it on your Christmas tree in December, but you can do a lot more than that! It has a flat bottom, so it can be a decoration for a table, desk, or shelf. Even better, the holiday red and green scarf can be removed, so it can be a decoration year-round. Maybe even use the attached gold cord to hang it from your car’s rearview mirror!
This ornament sports a red Christmas stocking, embroidered with gold snowflakes and sparkling beads, with a full-bodied Scottish terrier inside it, with its head and paws peeking out. It comes with a red ribbon attached to the terrier’s head to make it easy to hang from your tree.
Amazon reviewer JWLizard says, “It is adorable. The facial expression is so perfect. Sweet little ornament … The beads and stitching are perfect.”
If you like to repurpose things, this is the ornament for you! It has a magnetic back, so you can use it as a Christmas tree ornament in December and a refrigerator magnet during the rest of the year.
It measures 3×3 inches and has a Scottish Terrier’s head sticking out of a dog house that is surrounded with snow.
It does not come personalized, but the front of the ornament has a blank name plate hanging above the dog’s head, making it easy for you to personalize it with a Sharpie marker.
I really this pine cone ornament because it looks so natural hanging from a Christmas tree. The Scottie dog is made of resin and is wearing a red and green scarf. It comes with a gold cord for hanging.
This round polyresin ornament can also be personalized (on the bone) with a Sharpie.
Now let’s go see what they have over on Etsy …
Wow, the colors on this quilted ornaments are really rich-looking. (Click on the image above and check out what the back of it looks like.) It’s made of red and green plaid fabric and a green ribbon wrapped around a three-inch foam ball. It has a Scottish Terrier centered on the front and is topped with a ribbon bow and stick pin.
“This Scottie dog ornament is ADORABLE!” says Tarilynn, an Etsy reviewer. “Of course the fabric is too cute, but your trim and accents and bow make it even more excellent! Thanks so much!”
This is a very simple and versatile ornament. Because it’s made out of felt, it’s thin enough that you can include it inside a birthday or Christmas cards, use as a gift tag, or hang from a car’s rearview mirror.
Not only is it personalized with your dog’s name and the year, but also the sweater can be made it any color that you like. It comes with a ribbon hanger, which can also be the color of your choice.
This wooden hand-painted ornament is made of high quality 1/8″ birch plywood, decorated with ribbon, with a pine wreath around the dog’s neck and a bell that actually tinkles. (The wreath and the bell are my two favorite things about it!)
It’s very lightweight, making it perfect for hanging on a Christmas tree.
