Biographical sketches and authentic anecdotes of dogs By Thomas Brown 1829
I had a quick scan through this book this morning. Quite interesting.

books.google.co.uk/books?...page&q=&f=false

One bit I found quite amusing..

ESPRIT DE CORPS
The Highland Greyhounds or Deer hounds as they are called in the Highlands have a great antipathy to the sheep dogs and never fail to attack them whenever an opportunity offers.
A shepherd, whose colly had frequently been attacked by the Deer dogs of Glengarry singly, and always succeeded in beating them off on such occasions, was one day assailed by them in a body, and his life would have been in considerable danger, but for one of the keepers who happened to pass at the time and called them off.


If you've not come across it before there is a huge amount to read on google books, see here as a starting point...

Very interesting that bit about not liking Collies. Ben's had several disagreements with them in his time although its been them attacking him. They don't seem to like rough play very much. He does get on well with a friend's Collie although that's a rescue and is a very nervous and timid dog.

Very much enjoyed this link. What a lovely description of Sir Walter Scott's Maida. And was there ever a more noble hound than Gelert? I think not. Thanks for this Teratyke.
