Jiggs.

Grave of a Petey, Little Rascals Dog

Field review by the editors.

Silver Spring, Maryland

Died 1938

Pet Cemetery.

Aspin Hill Memorial Park is the final resting place of J. Edgar Hoover's dogs (including Spee De Bozo), 40 to 50 humans who insisted on being buried with their pets, and the location of the "Medical Rats Memorial."

But its most famous internee is Petey, the dog with the magic marker circle around one eye from the Our Gang (a.k.a. "Little Rascals") movie short comedies. Of course, that was just the dog's stage name; his real name was "Jiggs" or "General Grant" -- or something. He lived from 1928 to 1938, and his grave is labeled: "General Grant of R.K.O. Jiggs."

If you ask at the office, someone will be happy to direct you to him.

Three thousand miles away, much closer to Tinseltown, is the grave of a "Petey" at the famous Pet Memorial Cemetery in Calabasas, CA. Pet Memorial is also home to other pet celebrities and celebrity pets like Steven Spielberg's Jack Russell, Rudolph Valentino's dog, Kabar, and Hopalong Cassidy's horse, Topper.
