In re Sh 14.2447 from Susan St. John

In 1977 I was a.d. of a production of TGV at the Globe of the Southwest
in West Texas.  The director insisted on a mechanical dog small but
active which he controlled from the lighting booth by radio remote.  The
dog created a sensation, stopping the show night after night.  But the
dog was too clever for Launce, who was badly (and I think unfairly)
upstaged.

Yours for live dogs,
John Velz
