jeep, the dog on the cover

Eric Clapton's 1975 album There's One in Every Crowd* features on its cover a pale-eyed dog of the Weimaraner sort, with its head on what might be a coffin. I don't know if it is a coffin, but that's Eric Clapton's dog, Jeep. I found that out here.

Those of you who are George Harrison fans (I know many) may have wondered about the instrumental on All Things Must Pass entitled "I Remember Jeep." Yes, this Jeep. The dog had been stolen. In his autobiography Clapton notes that Jeep had been his first dog since childhood; I hope he was recovered.

*I love two cuts on this album: "Better Make It Through Today," and "Pretty Blue Eyes."

Not a comment about Jeep the dog. I wondered if you had seen this post about a cat? http://www.boingboing.net/2009/02/01/communication-with-c.html
