The Last KDT

Patrick over at Terrierman has written the complete history of "The Kill Devil Terrier".

...what must surely be one of the last Kill Devil Terriers in existence -- a dog made famous by Orville and Wilbur Wright.

The first Kill Devil Terrier was acquired by Orville and Wilbur in 1902 at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina while they were waiting out the weather to test their second big glider.

It is an entertaining read. Check out his working terriers as well, lots of hunting with hole dogs.
