Two Dandie Dinmont terriers. The breed is named after Dandie Dinmont, a jovial farmer in Sir Walter Scott's novel Guy Mannering. Arthur Wardle (British, 1864 -1949) was a prolific and very talented late nineteenth century artist who created an extraordinary body of work, yet surprisingly little has been written about him. Known by some as a painter of big game and wildlife, he is for dog lovers one of the pre-eminent painters of pure bred dogs that England has produced.
