Doug Potter writes to let me know that Gordon, one of the very last Kill Devil Terriers, was killed by a large Canebrake Rattlesnake yesterday while out in the yard. I am gutted. Gordon was a fun and happy little dog with a great family who loved him. My condolences to Doug, his wife, and their kids.
The Kill Devil Terrier was first launched back in 1902 when Orville and Wilbur Wright did their second glider test at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
Goodbye Gordon. You were much loved, and nothing loved is every lost.
