A proposal to name a state dog has lost its bite.

A Kansas House committee on Tuesday declined to hear a bill that would have named the cairn terrier the official state dog. The breed is best known in Kansas for playing Toto in "The Wizard of Oz."

Brenda Moore, of the South Central Kansas Kennel Club, originally asked State Rep. Ed Trimmer, a Democrat from Winfield, to introduce the bill.

She said she plans to conduct a statewide campaign this summer, including a petition drive to present to state politicians.

The Wichita Eagle reports Trimmer said he plans to re-introduce the bill next year. In the meantime, he will visit with Kansas schoolchildren about the process of getting the Legislature to pass a law.
