Smoky, The Dog That Saved My Life: The Bill Wynne Story
Meet Nancy Roe Primm, author of Smoky, the Dog That Saved My Life: The Billy Wynne Story and Bill Wynne, WWII veteran. World War II soldier Bill Wynne met Smoky while serving in New Guinea, where the dog, who was smaller than Wynne’s army boot, was found trying to scratch her way out of a foxhole. After he adopted her, Smoky served as the squadron mascot and is credited as being the first therapy dog for the emotional support she provided the soldiers.
Hear stories from Primm and Wynne, then watch Rick Caran and his Yorkie Ruby entertain the crowd with show stopping tricks you will not soon forget! Ruby will be playing Smoky in an upcoming film celebrating the military hero. This program will take place immediately after the talk with Primm and Wynne from 1:30pm -2pm.
Venue: Museum of the Dog
