Don’t forget the dog

Remember Gaines Burgers? They were a popular dog food at one time. Well, the makers of those hamburger-looking dog treats was the The Gaines Dog Research Center. They published this directory in 1954 to let travelers know what motor courts and motels allowed dogs as guests. The inside of the guide is pretty plain, listing accomodations by state. What is interesting to me is the list of what certain motels would accept. For example, some only allowed small dogs. Others, only guide dogs with their blind owners. Still others, accepted dogs only during annual dog shows. No matter the rules, you gotta love the cover of this guide.
