A Dog's Obituary

During my career I have written thousands of newspaper articles, but I don't remember as much feedback about any of them as the obituary I wrote for Rascal, a dog in Covington whose main claim to fame was a starring role as "Sandy" in a 1996 Playmakers Inc. production of the musical "Annie." 

The canine celebrity really became a favorite of the Playmakers cast and crew, as well as the community theater audience, when night after night, performance after performance, Rascal hit the mark and did her part. When she died a few months later, it was a sad event for the many who had worked with her and the many who had enjoyed her stage performance.
