Sure, Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Benji and Cujo have had movies made of their exploits.
But have they ever had a bobblehead night at a new baseball park?
Finn the Bat Dog will.

The first 2,500 fans attending the Aviators’ June 22 contest against the Sacramento River Cats at Las Vegas Ballpark will receive the bobblehead of the 6-year-old black Labrador retriever.
Now in his fourth season assisting hitters with their left-behind lumber, Finn is renowned for dashing to home plate to retrieve the bat and return it to his owner, Fred Hassen, the founder and CEO of Sit Means Sit, a dog-training company with franchises around the country.
And to the home plate umpire who will be working the game, let Finn do his job.
The Aviators (35-30, 6½ games behind in the PCL Pacific Southern Division) begin a seven-game road trip Wednesday in Nashville. They return to Las Vegas Ballpark on June 20.
