Roadside Pet Cemetery

Great animals deserve post-mortem tributes as much as any President or rock star.

pigsnakeIt's unlikely you'll find Teddy Roosevelt's hide stretched over a frame and action-posed in a display case, but what about Trigger, Roy Roger's horse? Or Owney, the US Postal mascot dog? Or Old Rip, the desiccated miracle toad? You betcha. Americans adore their dead animal companions, if judged by the amount of stuffing and mounting, and of deified civic mascots and public statuary. Sometimes, it's just a worn granite slab and a sad story -- worthwhile enough for a snack-break off the interstate.
