Text on plaque: "Erected by the employes of Haight St. Cable Car Line and P. & O. Rail Road. To the memory of their three Dogs, JACK, FIDO & TIP. In life they were intelligent, Noble and affectionate, and were cruelly poisoned by Burglars on the morning of March 9, 1891, and nobly perished at the post of duty. Jack, Fido and Tip, illfated three. Poor dead playfellows, a sad bequest. Faithful to the last, now you're free. Sleep on forever; peaceful be your rest. O. R. Hawthorne. Anaker.".
