The "Almost" True Story of the Old West
The "Wild West" has gotten a little "Old" and dusty. Travel along the Tailsville Trail with Ford Beagle as his tail swings from adventure to adventure and in the process cleans up the places you think you know. This is the "almost" true story of how the "Old Wild West" was tamed.
Along Ford Beagle's adventure, which begins with two explorers, Lewis Leonberger and Clark Corgi and their Pack of Discovery, you'll travel up the recently discovered river named after Missouri Maltese. From St. Louis, it's up the "Muddy Mo" to Fort Yankton. You'll arrive just in time to help send off General George Armstrong Collie and the 7th Pack on their exploration of the West and ultimately on their way to the Little Big Bone to do battle with Sitting Bull, Crazy Pooch Plott, Geronimo Redbone Coonhound and their pack of Indian Spitz.
What awaits General Collie and the 7th is only a small piece of this story. You'll get nose-to-nose with Billy "The Pup" Harrier, Black Bart Beagle, Doc Hound, Wyatt Eurasier, James Butler "Wild Bill" Harrier, Calamity Jackshund, the Donner Dachshund Pack and many more. You'll visit Broken Bone, Stinky Springs, Dodge City, Tombstone, have a front row seat to the shoot-out at the OK Kennel, visit the Big Dig (aka the Grand Canyon), Deadwood and eventually it's on to Tailsville.
Finally, you'll learn the "almost" true story of how such places as Yankton, the Grand Canyon, the Badlands, Harney Peak, and the Rocky Mountains were named. As if that weren't enough, and by any tale it should be, you'll learn how "golf" got its name, who saved Rock Ridge, how "Silver and Gold" became a Holiday favorite and a whole bunch of other neat stuff too numerous to fit into this space.
So, settle in with your pooch, if you don't have one go borrow one, and get ready to hit the recently cleaned up trail. This trail isn't dust free but Ford has cut down on the number of ticks and fleas along the way. Your adventure is only a scratch away!
