This image shows two stray dogs playing with a third dog, whose leash has been tied to a railing outside Rankin Science Hall, built 1963, in February 1986. Stray dogs were common on the Appalachian State campus during the 1970s and 1980s, where they were fed by students and allowed to roam freely until the campus began enforcing leash laws. Dogs were officially banned by Chancellor Wey from campus buildings and the cafeteria in 1978. This image appears in the February 26, 1986, edition of "The Appalachian" (p. 3).
