A small Scottie enjoys the view from the porch. The artist Marguerite Kirmse depicted many breeds. Still, Scottish terriers were among her favorites, shared with her husband, George Cole, a dog show judge and president of the Scottish Terrier Club of America. They bred several favorite breeds at their farm, yet Scottish terriers appear to hold a special place in Kirmse's heart, evident in her etchings, paintings, and sculptures.

Marguerite Louisa Kirmse (1885-1954) was a British artist renowned for her intricate drawings and etchings of dogs. Born in Bournemouth, Hampshire, she was the younger sister of Persis Kirmse, an artist who also specialized in depicting dogs and cats. Despite initially training as a harpist at the Royal Academy of Music, Marguerite found her true passion in drawing animals. In 1910, she traveled to the United States on holiday with friends and decided to stay, finding little success in advancing her musical career. Immersing in animal drawing, she frequented the Bronx Zoo for sketching trips, honing her craft. In 1921, she began producing etchings of dogs. She published notable works like Dogs (1930) and Dogs in the Field (1935), along with illustrating books by authors like Rudyard Kipling and Eric Knight, including the classic dog tale Lassie Come-Home (1940)!
