Mr. Webster and The Countess

A great lover of animals, the Scottish Countess of Northesk is here seen with her favourite Dachshund, 'Mr. Webster.'
Unfortunately, we don't know which Countess of Northesk this is but if anyone has any more information, please send it in. Photo approx 1935?

UPDATE: Thanks to our good friend 'Clancy' for finding out that this is indeed Dorothy Mary Carnegie (née Campion), wife of John Carnegie, the 12th Earl of Northesk, and apparently a descendant of William the Conqueror. More photos can be seen at the National Portrait Gallery.
