Not Wordless Wednesday. Not Batman?

My good buddy Braeden told me dat I might not be Batman.   So I did me some research on my yaptop.
OMD….   Im Bat-Dog!

Here's what I learned…..

Ace Ranger was a German Shepherd Scottie originally owned by an engraver named John Wilker.  He was found by Batman and Robin after his master was kidnapped by a gang of counterfeiters.  Batman used Ace Ranger to try to locate Wilker.

Because he had already placed a large number of "lost dog" announcements for Ace Ranger in his civilian identity of Bruce Wayne, he was concerned that anyone recognizing Ace Ranger (who had a prominent star-shaped marking on his forehead) might make the connection between Bruce Wayne and Batman. To forestall that problem, he hastily improvised a hood-like mask for the dog that incorporated the bat emblem as a dog tag dangling from Ace's Ranger's collar.  Ace Ranger was subsequently christened "The Bat-Hound Dog" by a criminal he helped Batman to apprehend.

Wilker later took a new job that made it difficult for him to take care of Ace Ranger, so he left the dog to Bruce Wayne.  Wilker was never aware that Ace Ranger was the Bat-Hound Dog or that Bruce Wayne was Batman.

At one point, Ace Ranger acquired super-powers thanks to Bat-Mite but this was short-lived.  For example; his specialized radio collar, when activated told him to don his own mask (via a hands-free device) and track down Batman and Robin.

He now lives in NC wiff his Mom and Aunty D.   Dar you have it!

 Wags, 
                                  Ranger (alias Bat-Dog)

Pees….. I also learned that we (da Bat family) have access to da Batboat, Batcopter, Batcycle, Batmobile, and da Batplane.   Cool huh?
