When I travel, I look for dog cemeteries. Here are a few off the beaten path.
|Pet cemetery at Manzanar, an interment camp where Japanese Americans|
were incarcerated during World War II. Today it is State of California Historical Landmark #850 and
is maintained by the National Park Service. It appears that pets continue to be
memorialized here, but why is a a mystery to me.
|Fort MacArthur K-9 Command Cemetery in San Pedro, California. The military dogs buried here were killed in the|
line of duty during World War II. Records are intentionally spotty as to what the dogs were actually used for,
but it's clear that they were trained at Fort MacArthur.
|Also in Havana, a small memorial to beloved cats and dogs at Finca Vigia.|
the home of Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gelhorn,
|Theodore Roosevelt's home, Sagamore Hill, features a pet cemetery where|
the family's many horses and dogs are buried.
