Farewell, Miss Fossil

Six days after returning home from a gruelling August 1995 campaign of 100-plus degree days ARPP charter mascot Rhodesian Ridgeback "Miss Fossil" sucumbed to a failing heart condition. She represented us proudly during every expedition, from the very beginning as a sprightly yearling in 1983 'til the end. Through it all she shared the privations and exhilarations of life in the field with the resilience, grace and humor so characteristic of our finest team members. Farewell, old friend.
