Diary entry January 25 1936

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a Smooth Fox-Terrier: The Smooth Fox-Terrier. Of the nineteen varieties listed by The Kennel Club, this is the oldest established, though of late years superseded in popularity by the Wire haired. Going back to the Old English white Terrier, with a probable cross of the Bull Terrier, he combines fighting qualities with an aptitude for going to ground. For this purpose he should be on the small side. These cocky and sporting little dogs make most admirable companions. Their sturdy build had a suggestion of a miniature foxhound, and as hunt terriers they both look and act the part.
