Due to the ongoing popularity of Buster Brown and Tige for decades - into at least the WWII era - they were also heavily used for advertising. In some of the early drawings it may seem hard to identify Tige's breed (although he was known to be APBT.) It is much easier for us now to identify the breed from photos from the later movies.
Old Harvey was mascot for the 104th Ohio Infantry.He was beloved for the companionship humor he provided the troops.It is said that Harvey would show his great love for music by swaying from side to side while the soldiers sang campfire songs in the evening.He was wounded in 2 different battles survived each time. Harvey’s tag read,“I am Lt D.N. Stearns’ Dog. Who’s Dog Are You?” The 104th had a portrait of Harvey commissioned so that he could still be part of their reunions after his death.
