She has survived the depression, a world war, and political turmoil. Despite the many changes during her lifetime, the 'Macdonald Lassie' remains as one of the most recognized trademarks in marketing history. A true Canadian creation, the original lassie was Betty Annan, a Toronto resident who posed for local artist Rex Woods in the 1930s. After that Betty's smiling face became a familiar sight on cigarette packages, ads and bilboards across the country.
