Dandie Dinmont is a jovial farmer in Sir Walter Scott's Novel

Guy Mannering. A short legged dog of the terrier breed was

developed in the 17th century to hunt otters and badgers in the

Cheviot and Teviotdale Hills in the border country of Scotland and

England. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is named after Dandie Dinmont,

the character in this novel.
