I was tickled to see so many dogs out and about on our recent trip to Scotland. They may not have been obviously working (like the Sheepdogs), but in their own minds they perhaps thought they were performing important duties.

He was a famous Skye Terrier who lived in Edinburgh.
I have never been particularly fond of Skye Terriers.
However on our recent visit I learned they originated on the Isle of Skye.
It turns out I originated on the Isle of Skye as well (in a way). My grandfather's grandfather was born there.
