Miss K. A. Dippie is one of the Scottish members of the Ladies' Kennel Association, and was one of the very fortunate exhibitors at the Ladies' Summer Show in July last, for every dog she sent took back to Glasgow one or more prizes. The portrait here given is that of her young Deerhound Ada Alexander, which won third open and third novice in very strong competition, and she also captured several specials. The dog is depicted in the picture with Mr. Dippie, who is one of the best-known "doggy men" up Baker Street. North, being not only the proprietor of the Scottish Fancier, but a judge and an exhibitor of every variety of dog bred in Scotland. At the Ladies' Kennel Association Show Mr. Dippie was good enough to give his valuable assistance as honorary steward.
