Baron von Sputnik - Swamp Dog
The Tantes had a swamp mongrel they named "Baron von Sputnik", hybridizing their ever present German heritage and the Soviet threat hovering high overhead. The poor mutt was a collarless pup that never saw a bathtub, other than the occasional Spring rain or rolling in a bog. Since my great aunts survived on canned sardines and Quaker Oatmeal, I don't think the dog had a diet of anything else.
