In Hartnell's hospital room on the wall, Seagull spotted this at the 3:33 mark in the video linked below --

I wonder if that was a 'Secret Pal' card? Sounds just like something Z would have done.Once again Seagull, very impressive attention to detail.

Nice! Can you imagine?Although, I do believe it's a dog with a cone on it's head.

I thought so too...but that would be more of a birthday theme. (Hartnell's birthday is July 1.)Dog or not, I feel it's a very strong likeness to the dragon card.

If you freeze the frame at 3:33, there is a horse or donkey clearly in the center-left portion of the frame. Are horses/donkeys related to healing? Also, if it is a dog, why is a man in a hat sitting on its back?

Yes, it has a mane, so it is a horse or a donkey.

Zodiac enjoyed using the Jolly Roger greeting card in his communiques. At 3:38, you can see such a card. While not the same card, here is an example of another Jolly Roger card of the same genre. <a href='http://postimage.org/' target='_blank'><img src='http://s18.postimage.org/e281yt255/Gree ... unny_4.jpg' border='0' alt="Greeting Card Felt Funny 4"></a><br><a target='_blank' href='http://postimage.org/'>free image hosting</a><br><br>I found some person offering to sell a bunch of these cards online, one of which includes a variant of the man and a donkey card.

Guess I just saw a big dog nose. And it's short.

Was it this one or another version?http://zodiackiller.21.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=4499

Good observation, Judge Holden! Just an F.Y.I. for people, Jolly Roger/International Greetings was not the only company at the time who made cards that looked like this. I know the Hinz company also made cards that looked like this, with flocking/felt and the same size and shape and similar drawings and humor.
