History
ACCORDING TO DONOR BILL LINGARD AT TIME OF DONATION, "(THE TAG WAS) IN A BOX OF DIVERSE ITEMS... THEY MAY HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO MY OLDER BROTHER BUT WERE MINE AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER." LINGARD RECALLED, "THE TAG WAS WORN BY A GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG, 'REX' OWENED BY MY LATE UNCLE, DONALD N. LINGARD. WHEN DON WENT INTO THE ARMY, THE DOG REMAINED AT MY GRANDPARENTS' HOME AT 505 14TH ST. S. WHICH LATER BECAME OUR HOME. THE DOG JUST SORT OF WENT WITH THE HOUSE. I KNEW THE DOG AS A CHILD, HE WAS A SELF APPOINTED GUARDIAN OF NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN, WITH US WHEN WE PLAYED, ALWAYS BETWEEN US AND THE STREET. THE DOG WAS QUITE POSSESIVE OF THE FAMILY, FOR EXAMPLE, MY MOM HAD CALLED MR SCOTT, A PLUMBER, TO THE HOUSE TO DO SOME WORK - ON COMPLETION OF THE JOB SHE WAS STANDING AT THE FRONT STEPS TALKING WITH HIM. MR. SCOTT WAS STANDING ON THE FRONT YARD SIDEWALK. THE DOG WAS WALKING BACK AND FORTH AND MY MOM NOTICED THAT MR SCOTT WAS NOW AT THE CITY SIDEWALK. EACH TIME THE DOG WALKED BY HIM, HE GAVE MR. SCOTT A SLIGHT BUMP, MOVING HIM BACK A STEP." IN 1941, DOG LICENSES WERE SOLD BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE (C.L.P.).
