Friends after the very end.. Grover Krantz was a professor of physical anthropology at Washington State University. He decided to donate his bones to the Smiths

Grover Krantz was a professor of physical anthropology at Washington State University. He decided to donate his bones to the Smithsonian, just as he had donated the skeletons of his three beloved Irish Wolfhounds.
Krantz hoped that his bones would be placed on display, and in 2009, that hope became a reality. Krantz's skeleton was included in the National Museum of Natural History's "Written in Bone" exhibit. Sculptor and Smithsonian taxidermist Paul Rhymer didn't just reassemble Krantz's skeleton; he posed it with the skeleton of Clyde, one of Krantz's Irish Wolfhound, arranging the pair in an affectionate embrace they had shared in life.

I remember we used to have a calf with no mom so i bottle fed it until it was big enough to drink water and eat by itself. Let me tell you after so long of bottle feeding it tasted delicious.

read the description.

"Grover Krantz was a professor of physical anthropology at Washington State University. He decided to donate his bones to the Smithsonian, just as he had donated the skeletons of his three beloved Irish Wolfhounds."

I'm gonna be honest. I never read descriptions. Thanks for the clarification, though.

If you're a fan of large dogs, you might like to check out a Tibetan Mastiff too.

I love being apologised to. I have no idea why. It must just be the sense of satisfaction that I was right for once.

Because you never were supposed to be born.
