After an energized discussion on Facebook about the Scotties with some white on their chests, and whether it's ok. I thought some of you might enjoy a window into the standards that the original breed establishers felt were important. The Photo below is the first Scottish Terrier champion in America....I have forgotten his name. This was the breed ideal, what the creators of the breed valued. Notice the haircut, overall dimensions, the brindle coat.
