Caption under photo “Dogs Play ‘Musical Chairs’ – Just how clever can a dog be? Now they can even play games! Pictured at the costume party for dogs given Wednesday at the Dog Training center are Dick Haight, left and Jean Nordstrom, right, who with their dogs are playing “musical chairs.” The object of the game is to see how quickly the dog owner can find a chair and get the dog to put its fore feet in his lap when the music stops. Cocker spaniels are too small to compete in this game.” Appeared in Gazette Telegraph, Sunday, December 23, 1951.
