Short Dogs, Photoshop, and Scotch Whiskey

B&W scotchMy memory is not eidetic, but 50-year-old  images from print advertising never leave me.  When I spotted a pair of terriers in the dog park;  a black Scottie and a white Westie, I immediately recalled the image at left.  That is the logo for the formerly popular brand of blended Scotch whiskey, Black and White.  Launched in 1898, it was once the official drink of the House of Commons. Today the brand is not even sold in the UK. It has a miniscule share of the worldwide Scotch whiskey market, eclipsed by the likes of Johnny Walker and Dewars.

B & W scotchThe photographs of the two dogs in the park, “Salt” and “Pepper”, are already in this blog.  On a whim, I Photoshopped a phony label for a whiskey bottle, substituting my friend’s pets for the old trademark.  She likes the print a lot and tells me she plans to frame it.
