Stuffed dog made of heavy white cotton fabric. The dog has a dachshund-like shape, with short legs, a long body, and droopy ears. Facial features are painted in black. The donor received the dog as gift from a family friend, who probably purchased it at a store in Marysville, Kansas. The donor received most of the autographs while attending a Brownie Day Camp held in Marysville during the summer of 1960. Her family was preparing to move to New York, and her Brownie friends signed the dog. The most notable signature on the dog is that of Forrest C. "Phog" Allen, who was the basketball coach at the University of Kansas from 1919 to 1956. The donor's father played under Allen while attending KU in the late 1920s. He visited the family before they moved and signed the dog.

Date: 1960
