Order of Yellow Dogs

I decided to go through some things that belonged to my grandfather today.  I found two membership cards to Order of Yellow Dogs.  At first I thought this must be some kind of joke.  But why would he have kept these cards since 1924 and 1925.  He died in 1980.  I Googled Order of Yellow Dogs.  I found out was a legitimate lodge.  I could not find much information about them.  I never heard of them, and he never talked about it that I remember.  If anyone out there knows about the Order of Yellow dogs, please enlighten me.

    I was going through my dad’s things and found his life membership in the Order of Yellow Dogs. He died in 1969 and I never remember my mom saying anything about it. Still have no clue what it is.

    Order of the yellow dog is a degree in Freemasonary. He was most likely a free mason . Once a master mason you can join rites such as the Shriners or York or Scottish . The yellow dog is not a traditional degree but one more for fun

    Funny I run across this. I was just Googled to see if there were still around. I am a member since 1982. Aaron, No the Order of the Yellow Dogs is not a degree in the Free Masons. There is a Yellow Dog degree, however that is not the same as the Order of The Yellow Dogs. It is a secret order that is or was male only club that without divulging the secrecy that I am have sworn to keep, can only say that we had gathering that was a day for us to get away and relax from the nagging wife and wining kids.
