A new bill is being proposed to designate the Cairn Terrier, the dog breed that played Toto in The Wizard of Oz film, as the official state dog of Kansas.
Rep. Ed Trimmer is proposing a bill to designate the Cairn Terrier as the official dog breed of Kansas at the urging of Kansas native Brenda Moore, chairwoman of the South Central Kansas Kennel Club. Moore feels the designation is important to her state.
There was a previous attempt to designate the Cairn Terrier as state dog in 2006 and although it scored thousands of signatures, no politicians took up the cause.
