Visit with Dr. Lauri Travis and her dog, Dax, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at book signing!

Her particular interest in mammal bones led her to inquire about whether a dog could be trianed to detect mammal bones by scent. As a result, a trainer began working with dogs, and Dr. Travis will bring with her what is believed to be the only dog known who indicates on archaeological mammal bones. Dax is a border collie, Australian Shepherd mix and lives with Dr. Travis and her family. Dax accompanies her to the office and classroom everyday.
