Aberdeen Butteries Awarded EU Protected Status

After years of campaigning, the humble, but much loved buttery, is to be given protected status for Aberdeen and the Shire. Aptly timed before Brexit, the EU is to grant the much coveted PGS status to the North East’s rowie.

Bakers around the region have reacted favourably to the news that means only a buttery from the Grampian region can be eaten and enjoyed by fans of the morning treat.

Dr Lily Fasoopa of the nutrition department of our University said:
“It’s a richt rare treat tae eat Aberdeen butteries, but maybees nae every morning due to the high lard content. But our Rig or Farm workers can enjoy this high calorie treat a few times a week due to their high-energy intake needed to complete their gruelling jobs. The same for the workers on the Aberdeen By-Pass. They dinnae just stand around watching the traffic build up – they need these extra calories to keep them going.’

Local military ghost author and macabre short stories writer C.G. Buswell runs and is delighted with the news:

“Fit rare! I’m fair tricket! Oh michty me, I love a warmed buttery with lashing of butter and local jam. The EU, the Easy-Moggit Unsteek have done a grand job of awarding the PGS, the Panjoteralised Gadgie Speir!”

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.

We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.

The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:

"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
