A big dog trapped in small dog’s body, the Cairn originates from Scotland where it was bred for hunting vermin. Trapping its quarry down a hole, the dog would wait for its owner to come along and deal with the prey. Toto in The Wizard Of Oz was played by a Cairn called Terry; hard working, he appeared in a further thirteen films. Possibly inspired by her mother, Liza Minnelli owned several Cairns and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor owned two; the dog’s food was specially prepared and spooned into silver bowls.
