Dollar the dog, an extremely rare breed of dollarmation, was Richie Rich's faithful companion, although not from the very beginning. While the earliest Richie stories centered upon young Mr. Rich's interactions with the other neighborhood kids (Freckles, Pee-Wee, Gloria, etc.), eventually the series had a much larger supporting cast with Richie's aunts, uncles, cousins, pets, neighbors, servants, and many other recurring characters; too many to name from memory.
While the majority of characters would appear only as needed(usually for a two-page gag), Dollar appeared more frequently than was absolutely necessary; sometimes you'll see him in stories where he doesn't play a prominent role at all. This short story, however, was specifically written for him:
