Adele Williamson Graham and her dachshund, Scotch, have been best friends since Hurricane Katrina brought them together in 2005. They bonded when he was a tiny puppy that had been displaced during the storm. Scotch, a native of New Orleans, was voted The Meridian Star's Top Dog for 2013 and is on the cover of The Star's 2013 Top Dogs calendar. After Katrina, Scotch was left homeless. He and his family moved in with some friends of Graham’s, but Scotch had trouble adapting to the other dogs in the home, so Graham volunteered to take him into her home. Scotch remains true to his heritage and participates in Meridian’s Mardi Gras Krewe of Barkus parade every year. The 2013 Top Dogs calendars are available at The Meridian Star, 814 22nd Ave., during business hours. The cost is $5. Proceeds benefit The Star's Newspaper In Education program.
