This is Jamie Burton holding Gary Petty’s new puppy, Radar. Gary is holding Duke, their cat. Gary used to like to hold Duke tightly to see how long it would take the cat to make him let go. Duke didn’t like this. Gary’s unusual behavior with cats was already advanced by this time.
This photograph was taken at Gary’s house sometime around Christmas of 1975. Note that Jamie and Gary are wearing matching shirts. Gary’s mom and dad got all the gang the same type of football shirts with their names across the back.
