Diary entry September 26th 1936

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a West Highland White Terrier: WEST HIGHLAND WHITE TERRIER. Of all the types of Scottish Terriers, this one resembles most closely the original of them all, the Cairn. The main difference, in fact, is the colour. The West Highland is supposed to have originated from some chance puppies born white in a Cairn litter, whereupon someone had the idea that a white Cairn would be better distinguishable when working. He is a very delightful little dog, and is deservedly popular. His ‘prick’ ears give him a cocky appearance, and usually go up after teething. If he has a fault it is an inclination to ‘nerviness.’
