Photograph of Vida.

One of Scott’s favourite dogs, Vida suffered from a bad coat and would creep up to Scott for attention. Scott noted in his diary that initially the dog would growl at him but eventually his suspicion grew less: ’He is a strange beast - I imagine so unused to kindness that it took him time to appreciate it’.
