A few nice dogs images I found:

Sis, Coon, Pen (dog), and Aunt Mary Foust in Foust Hollow, Anderson Co., Tennessee

Image by David C. Foster
Mary Foust was the daughter of Daniel Foust. She never left East Tennessee and lived to be around 100 years old. When former President Teddy Roosevelt was visiting Tennessee she was considered the oldest living American at the time and he traveled to meet her and eat one of her home cooked meals. Sis and Coon were her children and her dog was named Pen. An American chestnut tree can be seen in the upper right hand corner of the photo. Mary was famous for living an unchanged lifestyle that was a living picture into past.

Mary was my grandmother’s (Myrtle Foust-Foster) great aunt. She (Myrtle Foust-Foster) told the following story to me: " sometimes when I was a little girl I would take mail to Aunt Mary and her dog would chase me. Mary would scream out &quot here Pen, here Pen" and the dog would stop chasing me."

Mary was the daughter of Daniel Nathaniel Foust and Mary Jane Humphries. My great great grandfather, Christopher Columbus Foust was her brother. The family originally came from Germany from about the time of the Thirty Year War and “Foust” translates to “fist” in German.
