Fans of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz will celebrate the dedication of a full size bronze memorial sculpture of Toto, Dorothy’s beloved dog. The Cairn Terrier’s original grave marker was destroyed in 1958 to make way for a Los Angeles freeway. Attendees are encouraged to bring their pets.

    It’s heartwarming to learn of Toto’s new memorial sculpture. It’s well-deserved and long overdue, since The Wizard of Oz and all of its characters, including Toto, have enriched our culture beyond measure. Thank you, Allan, as always, for keeping us informed about not only well-known subjects but about obscure ones as well – and thanks for sharing that wonderful photo of Dorothy and Toto, too!

    I’d really love to go – and bring one of my dogs. However, the Debbie Reynolds Hollywood Auction is that same day and I’ve been looking forward to that for a long time.

    I would think that two such event on the same day might cause quite a number of conflicts for people interested in both event. Is there any chance at all that the Toto Memorial event could be changed?

    How wonderful to have a memorial for that cute little dog TOTO. The photograph of Judy Garland andTOTO is really beautiful. The movie,” The WIZARD OF OZ” is a classic, and the cast well remembered .Thank you, Allan.
