SALINE DOG AT HOME IN CLASSROOM: Merritt Martin's dog Blackie looks pretty intelligent in this picture taken in the second-grade room of the Saline schools. She has been going to school for more than a year, and she has the privileges of regular puils including a desk next to her master. She sits up like this for awhile every morning, lies down when she is tired and is lulled to sleep during the music lesson. She never makes a disturbance in the classoom.

AMONG THE LARGEST: This 18-ton granite monument at The Happy Hunting Ground Memorial Park for Pets near South Lyon is reputed to be one of the largest single pieces of monument stone in Michigan. In front of the memorial rests "Platoon Sergeant Sparks," a dog that served three years in the Pacific Theater during World War II and received seven citations, three personally by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The dog was alive and present when the monument was dedicated in 1946.
