VLT-snow-dog-2

It was a nose-to-nose stand-off. Four-year-old Kristie Stone of Toledo was spotted by Blade Photographer Bruce Sinner on Feb. 14, 1974, as she investigated a loose dog in the neighbor’s front yard. Kristie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Stone, noticed the dog sitting patiently and moved in closer to see if it was real. She checked the dog’s crepe paper collar, then moved around to the front of the pooch to see if it had any teeth or would bark at her. The dog was the snow-sculptured masterpiece of Mrs. Joseph Intagliata on Revere Drive.
