Doggone it! Longtime PSU fan gets cardboard cutout of his dog for Beaver Stadium games

Guinness the dog will have his own cardboard cutout at games.

Ed Miles saw a perfect opportunity to have some fun and do something worthwhile, so he jumped at the chance.

Ed bought a few cardboard cutouts to be placed inside Beaver Stadium this season, including one for man’s best friend — his dog, Guinness.

“He’s a big personality,” Ed said with a laugh Wednesday morning.

Guinness is an 8-year-old English Golden Retriever with white fur.

“We named our white dog after a black beer,” Ed said.

“He’s white and dressed for the official whiteout scenario.”

Ed is an Altoona native who graduated from Penn State in 1975. He now lives in Raleigh, N.C., and said, “Blue and white is in my blood.”

He makes it back up for one home game each season, and Guinness comes along. The pooch has to stay with cousins in Altoona while Ed goes to the PSU game.

But not this year.

“He’s just part of the annual Penn State trek to Altoona,” Ed said. “I thought it was appropriate for him to be in the stadium this year, as well. For eight years he’s made the long trek from Raleigh to Altoona and never been able to go to a game, and here was an opportunity for him.”

Penn State announced Tuesday that it will allow fans to purchase cardboard cutouts to be placed in Beaver Stadium during games this season. Check here for more information on the program.

“Being a Penn State alum, I just want to do everything I can to support the program this year,” Ed said. “Part of the proceeds go to THON, and it’s worth that kind of investment.”
