Correction to William Haynes' History by Janet Tomlinson
The Scottish Terrier Club of America was formed in 1900 by Dr. Fayette C. Ewing, Mr. J. Steele Mackenzie and Mrs. Jack Brazier of Long Island, who was the first President of the STCA, and not in 1901 as written by Haynes.
Also unknown until this recent discovery is the fact that Mr. James L. Little became the second President in 1903. Further research is required to discover how long he remained president due to the fact presidents from 1904 to 1914 remain unknown.
AKC has been keeping records on all breeds and for our interest specifically, the Scottish Terrier. You may look at the statistics gathered from AKC Gazette, by clicking on the link below. You will see that in 1936 there was a goodly number - over 700 in one month to compare and again in 1969 - over 800. These numbers run from 1925 to 1994.

The Puppy Who Found The Baby Jesus - Ages 3 to 6 - by Edith S. Weigand - Copyright Zhera Publications - I have loaded these pages individually in order to have them load on your computer/viewer quickly.
I opened another wonderful package sent from Bill Berry. In it was a book titled "Once In Love With A Puppy". I read the last page first. It brought tears to my eyes. Lee Netzler, a member of The Longmont Writers Club, the Dog Writers Association of America, and author of this fabulous book, had immediately found a place in my heart. I wrote Lee asking his permission to place his book here in the library for you to enjoy. As you can imagine, I was thrilled to hear back from him. Lee has, in fact, given permission for his works to be made available here for your enjoyment. Lee is also in the process of going through his papers and sending me more. So please, check back often for new additions. Lee, an extremely talented writer and lover of Scotties, is the winner of 5 DWAA Maxwell Medallions. I am sure you will enjoy the following, as these are absolute jewels.
26. Chloe -- Chloe is a special poem to me, written by Lee for our Westie girl who became blind at three from cataracts. Surgery has restored her sight. Thank you Lee. Your special talent warms the hearts of so many!
