The love/hate relations between Kansas and Oz continue

Thanks to The Daily Ozmapolitan, I found this editorial from a Kansas newspaper about some legislator in Kansas trying to push the Cairn Terrier as the state dog, since Toto was a Cairn. Okay, cute, ha ha. But what evidence is there that Toto — the real Toto, not Terry who played him in the famous film version — was a Cairn? He's never named as being of a particular breed in the books, and has been illustrated as numerous breeds in as many editions. Oh, well, nobody pays attention to the book anyway, so it will probably happen...
