Please leave Greyfriars Bobby’s wee nose alone, it isn’t tradition to rub the nose on this statue and I have no idea where this ‘tradition’ started. No it won’t bring you any luck, you will just irritate the locals, Despite several paint (nose) jobs people still rub the poor wee dugs nose
Someone has put up a wee note, asking ‘please don’t touch my nose, love Bobby’
Greyfriars Bobby was a wee Skye terrier, legend has it after his owner John Grey died and burried in Greyfriars kirkyard, this loyal wee dug spent the rest of his life at his masters grave, a whole fourteen years.
So, yes…. please don’t rub Greyfriars Bobby’s wee nose, please! 🙂
