The Hounds of Baskerville & Keating

Detroit Free Press, February 8, 1903
 Apparently Eloise had a pack of show dogs that performed and probably won prizes at area contests in the early 1900s. Since an even longer list of dogs with no connection to the institution isn't going to enlighten either of us I've truncated this one and left the search highlighted keywords intact. Cap, Ruffles and No. 68 1/2 were owned by R. J. Baskerville (The Hounds of Baskerville, eh?) and J. S. Keating, whoever they may have been (it's too late to start another search) at the facility. The show took place at the Light Guard Armory in February of 1903.

The second snippet is a listing for an Irish Setter for sale from 1904.
