The New York Yankees’ triple A affiliate the Trenton Thunder have a golden retriever named Chase that serves as a “bat-dog” and mascot for the team. He visited Yankee stadium today, got to play on the field while the team took batting practice and this happening (plus a team even having a bat-dog) is probably the greatest thing ever.
If you haven’t read Batman and Robin #18 you should track down a copy. Pat Gleason and Peter Tomasi give you some really emotional storytelling without a word of dialogue. And for me the member of the family that I was left feeling the most sympathy for is Damian’s dog Titus. He is only featured in a few panels but if you have a dog you can see a lot of in those images. You can tell he doesn’t understand what has happened and even worse doesn’t understand that his best friend isn’t coming home.
