GREAT photo for a number of reasons (love the little girl seemingly fisting the camera!), but can you see which one is not like the others?

Answer: The STUFFED toy terrier!

My favorite two are the young man on the far left holding the leash to the first Jack Rusell terrier who is giving as hard look at "Mr Good Hair and Good Looks" petting the collie. No love lost there!

Honestly, they all look straight of of "Lord Of The Flies" to me. I can't stop scanning their faces; there's SO much going on! Captain Pretty Collie is first to be pushed off the cliff!

Jack Russell Terriers had not been introduced to the US when this photo was taken. They were not imported until the 1970s.

LOL at Dale McDonnell. There are no words to describe the sum of what you do not know about Jack Russell terriers. Posting your comment for the amusement of others who actually know their ass from a hole a hole in the ground.
