It seems that most places have memories and tales of an animal that stands out in the hearts and minds of the locals. In England it was Olly, a cat that lived at the Manchester Airport. In Japan it was Tama, a cat that was made stationmaster at a train station. In Colorado it was Shep, a stray dog that came to live at the tollbooths along the Boulder-Denver Turnpike.
