Photo accuracy[edit]

I have doubts that this image of a Cairn terrier is actually Terry herself. The color appears awfully well-balanced and crisp for an image over 50 years old. SidP 07:57, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Image has been removed after IfD discussion agreed. AnmaFinotera 02:48, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Dog Years[edit]

Removed the observation that 6 is "42 in dog years". Not very encyclopaedic, and as the aging in dogs article (which was linked) points out, not very accurate either. Rojomoke (talk) 14:28, 20 January 2009 (UTC)


The article should say where the $125 a week actually went, right now it suggests that Terry actually received the money and made a living on it! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikiperson0202 (talkcontribs) 00:13, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

The source material doesn't specify. Presumably, Terry's owner/handler, Carl Spitz, was paid that amount and used it for upkeep on the dog. So, in a way, Terry was making a living off of it, by proxy.-- (talk) 17:24, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

what sex?[edit]

It seems to me that Toto, in the writeups I have seen, is a male. However, Terry, who played Toto, is referred to here as a female. (This wouldn't be unusual, since Flipper the dolphin was usually played by a female, and Lassie the collie dog was played by males.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:27, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

The article says she was "Rags" in Bright Eyes and both "Rags" and "Rex" in Bad Little Angel — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:26, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
