The 3-legged dog that greeted visitors and regulars alike to the Brady Arts District has died. Owner Steve Monroe said Ringo died in his sleep Sunday night. The Border Collie mix was 15.

Soundpony's biggest selling T-shirt featured a picture of Ringo, also known as the "Mayor of the Brady District." He even had a drink named after him at Brady Tavern.

Ringo lost a front leg to a gunshot wound eight years ago, but it didn't stop him from being a star on First Friday and other events in the re-vitalized district.

"Everybody loved that dog," Monroe said Monday.

"I'd like thank everybody in the neighborhood that's been so good to him and given him so much love and attention."
