What do you think?

We’ve had a metal Scottie “Welcome” that sticks in the ground. We painted it black but the paint has worn off and there’s a rust color to it now which is the style in these parts. Our Oregon dachshund cousins recently gave us a Westie. The question is, so we repaint the Scottie black and paint the Westie white, or do we go with the custom here and let them get “rust”ic?

  1. I’m no help at all lol, I say if the “custom” is to let it be rusty, than so be it. If not, I would paint it black. (Hmmmm….”paint it black” good name for a song title 😉 )

  2. I would march to the beat of my own will and paint the Scottie black and the Westie white. But that is my taste.

    • That was my thinking. If it were a parrot, I’d want it blue with an organge beak. Come to think of it, how come we don’t have a parrot one of these.

  3. Rust what you talking about man ~ that is a rich patina!

  4. Both rustic or Scottie black and Westie white

  5. Whatever will scare the reptiles most.

  6. Scottie black and westie white!

  7. Mama and I vote for crusty and rusty on the Scottie. We think that’s pretty cool. Let the Westie weather down, and then decide.

  8. Well….sometimes when the sun shines on us (the scotties) We’re sort of rust coloured, too. Bwahaahaa!

  9. We like the rustic look, personally 🙂

  10. Crikey …… we live near the ocean so we know all about rust. Mum says paint one black and one white. She doesn’t like rust too much.

    • Especially on your vehicle-my peep had that happen right next to the ocean in Pacifica, California just south of San Francisco. The rust from the salt was terminal.

  11. I think you should just go look for another dog to match the “rustic” one. Someone is sending you a sign. You need a redhead!

  12. Repainting sounds like it will eat up at blog reading time. We say leave it rusty and devote all time to Blogville.

  13. Dere is no such thang as a black westie. We is named West Highland WHITE terriers fur a reason. Nuff said.

  14. I definitely vote for the rustic look. Very ” On Trend”.

  15. I vote to put some dirt on them and grow some stuff. I like Chia Pet Green.

  16. Paint them black for the scottie and white for the westie,xx Speedy

  17. We decided to chew the question over while we were having breakfast and we are both in agreement – go rustic.

  18. to have “rusty” decorations is the dernier cri here (they sadly think that counts for cars too). they call it Steele and you have to pay more for the rusty pieces than for the brandnew thingies what need a while till they look rusty :o)

  19. I’m thinking “rust-ic” !

    Hugs, Sammy

  20. Fresh and glossy is always nice, but I get the fact you’re dealing with some serious sun but kind of like that rustic look. Wishing you loads of sunny skies. 🙂

  21. I think whatever you decide will be just fine.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  22. I’d go turquoise with the Scotty and bright orange for the Westie. Southwest, baybee!

  23. They look beautiful the way that they appear, although I like Maxwell’s idea. He must be a Dolphin fan.
