Saturday's Dog - Toto

It's a big weekend at our house. It's the BALLET CONCERT and this year's theme is "The Wizard of Oz", so I thought it only fitting that I feature its doggy star - Toto the Cairn Terrier.

Cairn Terriers originated in Scotland and were used for ratting & vermin control. They also contributed to the development of one of Australia's own breeds, The Australian Terrier.  In real life, Toto was actually a female Cairn called Terry who was paid $125 per week, more than double what the "munchikins" were paid. Where was the Actors' Union for that one?

Happy Walking, folks!
