Transcript Volume VI, Number 10. Mare Island Navy Yard 11 June, 1938. Many Facilities Available At Mare Island The Dude Ranch For Dogs " H E LEADS a dog's life." This used to be a popular and an often repeated saying but it is not true anymore in the sense intended. At least those lucky dogs that get a chance to register at the unique and already world famous institution, the dude ranch for dogs, are " lucky dogs" indeed. Listen carefully to the following facts. Located at Big Bear Lake, California, at an altitude of 7800 feet is the dude ranch for dogs; where it is too high for flies or fleas ( this usually bothers most dogs) and where the sage of the desert meets the pines of the mountains. Here a dog gets his vacation while his owners are on theirs. Three cars are at the disposal of the dogs, fully equipped with everything for a dog's comfort and convenience- well ventilated, radio, heater, et cetera. The cars will call right at the dog's home even though it is over a hundred miles away and drive them to the lake. When a dog comes into the DUDE RANCH he signs up for whatever sport he enjoys most. There is hiking, hunting, swimming as sum­mer sports; dog sled teams, tobog­ganing, and hiking in the snow for winter recreation. There are some dogs who wouldn't think of getting their paws wet in the daily swim, but they love to hike away back in the woods with a knap- sack on their back full of goodies.
