Forget the Monday Night meow—here’s three minutes of a dog weaving in and out of plays during an Auburn spring practice in 1964.
Around 1:20 he even gets in on a tackle. No one bats an eye.
As to my theory that Auburn is the college campus exhibit in some sort of Platonic Disneyland, Air Bud: The Dog Bone Formation (or should it be The Twelfth Man’s Best Friend?) might even trump the Flubber punts, etc.

That dog really hustles. I bet he got more than a paragraph in the ’64 Auburn Media Guide.
I think Charles BARKley (haw haw haw) got steamrolled at 0:48.
I think there’s a brand new white TBird rolling into the shot at 3.52. I can only see if for a second and it’s blurry on pause, so I’m not exactly sure.
I own one of those now, so it’s neat to see.
I can’t place the white car at 3.48. Chrysler, maybe? Anybody recognize it?
So where was the crowd for the game? A-Day not quite the event that it is these days….the dog allowed on the field is indicative of the low key game.
Great campus video….the Auburn I remember….the building boom that was under way,the new library and the wide open campus…. and the convenient tennis courts where I spent a good many sunny afternoons. Thanks and WE.
Parker Hall was only one year old at the time. I can’t help but wonder if it sucked then too. Saunders Hall’s hiding behind it, and was built in 1963 too. RBD had been built in 1962. What was the white building where the Science Center Auditorium now sits used for?
Hunter….I think that building was an old dorm/apartment building. It was left over from WWII. Seems I recall that some athletes or married students lived there.
When I arrived in ’59, we still had classes in some temp buildings near Mary Martin Hall ( which was the old library) which were about the same quality as we see at our overcrowded HS’s these days.
That would be the last of the Bibb Graves Cottages. The building at that time was called Extension Cottage and was home the the Alabama Cooperative Extension Service. Prior to the construction of the late Sewell Hall, the Graves Cottages housed football players and this building served as the dining hall. The last tenants before the building was bulldozed was the College of Science and Mathematics (COSAM).
I remember the track. In my fitness pe class, we had to run a timed 330 yard dash. It was also where the cake race ended. Also, fondly remember the cracker box. Broke my foot in my wrestling class. Can also the crowd that surrounded the cracker box trying to get a ticket to see Pete Maravich play.
Thank you for the memories.

…..Lotta “wow!” moments in this video! I was only 3 years old when this was shot, and didn’t get down to Auburn till 1978. However, this movie is closer to how I remember things, than today’s campus is.
