Default Stuckie the Mummified Dog

Stuckie the mummified dog!

Something a bit different. Stumbled across this and thought I'd share!

So the story goes, in 1980 a "logger" found the dog.

Saw the dog after processing the log and donated it to a museum.

The dog is a hunting type dog and around 4 years old. Apparently was in there for around 20 years. Scientists believe his fate was sealed when he chased something up into the tree.

The plinth next to Stuckie in the museum gives an explanation on how the mummification happened - "A chimney effect occurred in the hollow tree, resulting in an upward draft of air. This caused the scent of the dead animal to be carried away, which otherwise would have attracted insects and other organisms that feed on dead animals. The hollow tree also provided relatively dry conditions, and the tannic acid of the oak helped harden the animal's skin."

Imagine losing your dog in the 60's and finding it in a log 20 years later! Name:  Stuckie1.jpg

You don't have to tell me. I'm living proof. Not the whiskey type of "proof" either.

SMDH...Froggy, you're an embarrassment to the club. We need to have a membership meeting at 'nanza to discuss your eligibility to remain in the club! I'm pulling for you and will utilize any influence that I may wield, but I just can't make any promises!

Shut up and get off my lawn. I hope I don't get bumped back to a Nubbin Buck. I had a momentary relapse due to dain brammage in the 70's.
