Spotty dog

This is the famous Spotty Dog in Main Road, Retreat. The original Spotty Dog was a roadhouse, built in 1938, that sold hot dogs inside the dog's body. A kennel was added, but it all disappeared and eventually a truck destroyed Spotty. By public demand, a new Spotty Dog was consructed and is still there, even though his puppy had to be moved becuase of vandalism.


  1. Spotty dog was also the name of a dog in a British children's program/programme I remember from the early 1960s, The Woodentops.

  2. Its so sad that people can't keep their hands to themselves and that there are always somebody wanting to distroy or damage other people's property.
