"I Help my Pals"

 is the motto of the Tailwagger's Club, who still exist today and you can find them here.
I don't know the exact date that this medallion was received, as it is number 468 403, then probably the early 1930s.  The mystery is who was the dog that joined, and did that dog become part of our family as that isn't anyone I know on the name or address engraved.

  1. Very interesting. I've never heard of the tailwaggers but they are clearly a worthy cause, I shall make a donation to them.

  2. I had never heard of Tailwaggers either, and that was an interseting link about them. Did these medallions serve as a dog licenses, or a Tailwagger's membership?

  3. Thank you Howard, that's very kind of you. I was both surprised and pleased to learn that the organisation still existed.

  4. Steven, I think the medallion would just show membership of Tailwagger's. With dog licences the revenue went to the government, but talking about old dog licences, I have some . . .
