Visitor Tips and News About Dog Land
I'm looking for information, descriptions, recollections etc. on some defunct tourist traps that existed on U.S. 19 south of Perry, Florida back in the pre-Disney, pre-interstate days. Dogland - I found the hulk of the building for the attraction once touted as the world's largest collection of pedigrees and a Kentucky Fried chicken in the gift shop. The guy there would not let me look at the hundreds of rusting kennels in the back overgrown with weeds.[Bob Cara, 10/31/1997]
July 2008: Will Shetterly checked in -- "My parents' tourist attraction. We had over 100 breeds on display." Long closed, but Will was inspired to write the novel "Dogland" about a family who opens a tourist attraction in Florida.
