The family dog, Luther Burbanks's faithful fox terrier lived 23 years.
According to the Sonoma County Library, Bonita was given to Burbank by a neighborhood boy Flyod Lamburth. The dog was 12 years old when Burbank died in 1926, and lived 11 more years.
There was never a headstone, or marker of any kind.
Note: Bonita was originally buried under the Cedar of Lebanon tree - which was removed in 1989 - due to root disease.
