  • Museum Dogs (Have Bones—Will Travel to the Paleon) 

    We have several furry Mascots that assist in the Prep Lab.

    The first dog is a special fellow and has been coming to the Museum since he was a small lad.  Hank, a wire-haired dachshund, first came with his owner Debbie, who was also Shirley Davis’s daughter.  He was a very well behaved gentleman who actually had blue ribbons to prove his worth.  Debbie got Hank from Idaho and trained him to show and she and her Mom picked him up and brought him home.  Debbie, like her Mom, was a super fan of the Paleon and when cancer took Debbie away from us Shirley took Hank and then brought him with her whenever she came in to work in the lab.  When we lost Shirley, he was adopted by Lila and Jim Swan.  Lila is a Bone Biddy so she brought Hank with her and he loved helping guide tours through the museum.  He wanted to be right where the action was which put him in danger of being stepped on.  This meant that he had to be left at home with Jim doing “guy” things.  This didn’t set well with the dapper Hank and we found that out in a big way.  Last summer after being left with Jim, we were astounded when he walked into the lab.  The door had been propped open and he hopped up the step and into the museum ready to take care of business.  The fact that he crossed main street Glenrock to do his duty nearly gave the Bone Biddies a collective heart attack.  Jim now keeps an eagle eye on Mr. Hank.

    When Hank does get to visit he is on his leash and accompanied by one of his “people”, the very ones who also put him on a strict diet.  He has slimmed down and even with age and a ‘snaggle’ tooth he sits square on his bottom and begs for the treats that he knows can be found in a couple of special drawers.  When the Biddies have a high tea/coffee break the canines get to join in!

    Hi there! I'm a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin' caught in the rain.)
