Bummer and Lazarus were two stray dogs that lived in
San Francisco in the late 1800s. Bummer rescued Lazarus from a fight and
from that point on they never separated. Most of the time, back then,
strays were killed on site because dogs outnumbered humans 2 to 1, but
Bummer and Lazarus were so loved that there was a separate statute
allowing the dogs not only to roam the city, but downtown San Francisco
where NO dogs were ever allowed. The reason for this was these were the
best ‘ratters’ in the city. When Lazarus died over 30,000 people
attended the funeral and when Bummer died Mark Twain wrote the eulogy.
Mark Twain actually used the dogs in some of his stories.
