© National Geographic Society Painting by Edward Herbert Miner HANDSOME MANCHESTER AND KERRY BLUE TERRIERS BELONG TO PURE OLD BREEDS Wholly British in ancestry are the sleek Manchester, or Black-and-Tan Terriers. Spirited and vigorous, they were trained as rat killers for the old-time rat pits. Nowadays they serve as delightful companions. The Kerry Blue is pure Irish. Only recently recognized inAmerica as a show dog, this Terrier with the blue coat, well-knit body, and all-round sporting prowess has won enthusiastic admirers.
