What a wonderful picture! Thank you for sharing. Scotties have changed tremendously in looks over the years. My personal opinion is that they have become too much of a caricature of their former selves. If only we could go back and find nice dogs like these again!

Amazing the difference between the two pictures, isn't it? Terriers are such versatile dogs. The breeds had to be that way around, too.

Did you notice the small terrier (?) in the window in the store display?

Yes, he's "Nipper," a statue of the RCA Victrola mascot. See >> http://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2009/11/how-many-terriers-can-you-count-in-this.html for an inside picture of a store with MANY hidden Nippers as well as >> http://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2005/03/his-masters-voice.html for the entire back story on Nipper and his creator(s).

Luckily I found a breed who breeds Scotties of the old style. My girl Fiona is a hardy tough little cuss. She looks like the Scottie in this picture.
