How well do you know your standard? (Part II)

Now that you have had time to ruminate over Part 1 of the Standard, it’s time for Part 2. As was mentioned previously, the following multiple-choice test regarding the breed standard came from a member’s Wheaten archives. While we can’t say from whence it came, we fully give others the credit for its development. Cheating is allowed—so enjoy. From Pawprints, Volume 15, Number 3, March 1993. Answers follow the questions and the quiz has been edited based on the 2009 revised Standard.
