Diary entry August 22nd 1936

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a Japanese Spaniel: THE JAPANESE SPANIEL. These little dogs have been known in this country for at least a hundred years, but have now yielded pride of place as toys to the all-conquering ‘Peke,’ to whom they are closely related. Their lineage is ancient, going back to the earliest days of Japanese civilization, but the Pekinese is probably an older breed still. The ‘Jap’ stands rather higher on the leg than the ‘Peke,’ is more compact in the body, and his coat is not so full. They are inclined to be delicate, and difficult to rear.
