Two years before he won Best in Show at Westminster, this Scottie was owned by a butcher. At the Leadenhall Meat Market in London, “Jock” attracted the attention of Samuel Wilson of Yorkshire who offered the meat man $15 for the dog. When Wilson learned that the dog had a pedigree, he offered $5 more. After some preparation, “Jock” was sent on a round of minor shows where he had success. Andrew Albright, on a trip to England, bought Jock for $500 and brought him to the US. In 1910, he was Winners Dog, but Jock did a bit better in 1911 when he won the top honor at Westminster. He became CH Tickle-Em-Jock.
