Here’s the story: Toto (aka Terry), the little FEMALE Cairn Terrier most famous for her role in “The Wizard of Oz” (1939) was living on the ranch of her trainer/owner Carl Spitz, in the Studio City area of Los Angeles. In 1945 Toto died (she was roughly 10 or 11 years of age) and was buried on the ranch property. In 1958 there was a knock at the door from the State of California. They took the ranch property to build the Ventura freeway. The grave site of Toto was destroyed to build the freeway. Consequently there is no plaque or marker for probably the most famous dog in the world. A number of events are currently being planned to raise money for Toto’s memorial marker.
