Tootsie; The Official Mascot of the California U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association

Mascots figure prominently in several Route 6 towns.  As I mentioned in a prior post, Mike the Headless Chicken is the town mascot and ill-equipped spokeschicken for Fruita, Colorado.  (Well, he's been dead and gone for over 55 years, but even when strutting around, he was ill-equipped to squawk a word).

And this here is Tootsie, the official face of the California U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association.  Naturally, there are actual talking humans - Fred and Bettty Hann - who can actually speak English and know every inch of the Historic Route 6 in Cali.  But, apparently, this cute mop-top doggie garners much more attention, hence this professional-looking Mascot Certification.    I'll be filling you in on other town mascots once I hit the road........
