Back in 2003 we decided that there should be a supremely awesome place to buy pool cues and billiard supplies. PoolDawg also decided that the people who work at that place should be equally awesome. So, PoolDawg talked to a bunch of guys who make billiards equipment, built a website and PoolDawg was born. PoolDawg also decided that PoolDawg couldn't call the company PoolDawg without having a mascot. Since PoolDawg's fearless leader is a huge fan of the Travelocity Roaming Gnome, PoolDawg decided that Frank T. Dawg (our mascot) would be a shameless ripoff homage to that delightful little guy.
