Eulogy of the Dog

Old Drum1

Thought I’d share a little bit of local history that is too good not to be shared.  The Old Drum story is one about a dog who was shot and an owner who pursued justice for his dog thorough the court system and won!  Old Drum won our hearts and his place on our courthouse lawn.  If you have never read the “Eulogy of the Dog” by George G. Vest, please take the time to.
