Cucumber, aboard the USS Cumberland Sound AV-17. 1945. Cucumber, the dog, belonged to Art Dietz MoM 2/c. He obtained it (?) in Tacoma before AV-17 Commissioning. Someone told Art to bite the tip of the tail because it was bent. Cuke had the run of the ship for 4 or 5 weeks but she began to avoid everyone besides Art; she got sick from so many sailors feeding her ice cream and candy bars. She was still on board in Hawaii. I don’t remember when I last saw her.
