The Dandie Dinmont Terrier
It is named after Dandie Dinmont, a jovial farmer in Sir Walter Scott's novel "Guy Mannering". Scott also gave the names to the breed's colours, pepper and mustard, which were adopted from the names of Dandie Dinmont's dogs.

I don't know what dog breed came first. And I really need to know. Well, I don't need to know but I want to know. I think the pug was close to first. It could even be the first. But I don't know for sure. I need answers!?! That is the question.
