Jim The Wonder Dog

Not to many people outside of Missouri know about Jim the Wonder Dog but around here he's something of a local legend.
Photobucket
Jim the Wonder dog was an English Setter born in Mar. 10, 1925 and whom died in Mar. 18, 1937. His owner Samuel Van Arsdale, noticed something special about Jim early in his life when he was on a hunting trip and happen to tell Jim to go sit under a hickory tree. Immediately the dog went to a hickory tree and placed his paw on its trunk. His owner thought it was surely a coincidence so he then asked Jim to show him a black oak tree and Jim did! Then he identified a walnut, a cedar and a clump of hazel bushes.

This all started Jim's long career as a dog psychic.Collapse )
