DVD titled 'The Brother Dog Statues', video taken at the dedication of statues of San Diego's official dog 'Bum' and Edinburgh's 'Greyfriars Bobby' at William Heath Davis House Park. Greyfriars Bobby became known in 19th-century Edinburg, spending 14 years guarding his owner's grave. The City of Edinburg donated it in 2005 to commemorate 25 years as a San Diego Sister City. Bum, San Diego's Official Town Dog, died in 1898. His name suited him because he befriended everyone and 'bummed' food from local eateries.
