This is Toto, Dorothy's beloved dog from the 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz".    Toto (whose real name was 'Terry') was a Scottish Cairn Terrier, who went on to appear in more than a dozen films.    Toto isn't actually buried here.  His original grave was destroyed by freeway construction.  So, in 2011, Hollywood Forever has honored him with this little monument. The words on the pedestal read "There's No Place Like Home."

At the time of Hattie’s death, only whites were allowed to be buried in the cemetery, so her final wishes to be buried there were ignored. Instead, she was buried in the Rosedale Cemetery.   Hattie was an American Actress, famous not only for her role of Mammy in Gone With the Wind, but as the first African-American actress to win an Academy Award.  The monument stands at the Hollywood Forever cemetery, erected in 1999 by the new owners as a sort of apology for not honoring her final wish.
