Dr. Vincent "Wally" Bolé, a character from the storyline of The Lost Experience alternate reality game, was born 1938 and is an expert in the field of canine parapsychology and neuroveterinary medicine at La Ville Du Chien Jaune Université (literally translates as: "The City of the Yellow Dog University), outside of Troisvierges, Luxembourg.

He currently appears to be the head of the Retrievers of Truth Institute for the Advancement and Research into the Mental Abilities of Yellow Labrador Retrievers.


"Yellow Dog you know my mind" by Dr. Vincent "Wally" Bolé

"His life was a hellish nightmare of neglectful parents, and a near-fatal accident until a kindly yellow lab pranced into his life and change him... forever."

The nickname Wally comes from the family's trusted Labrador Retriever who saved his life when, as a child, he fell into an abandoned well on the family estate. After this incident and because he had less-than attentive parents (his father was a near-famous neurosurgeon, his mother a saucier and the co-host of a little-watched TV show) he came to look to the dog as his surrogate parent.

The bond that developed between them and a chance encounter with The Hanso Foundation CEO and founder, Alvar Hanso, at a life-extension workshop in Rangoon would inspire Dr. Bolé to expand his research and eventually create the Retrievers Of Truth Institute for the Advancement and Research into the Mental Abilities of Yellow Labrador Retrievers.

Dr. Bolé has written several books on the subject of canine telepathy including, "Yellow dog, you know my mind," "Don't say fetch, think fetch," and "They may not speak but they say so much." Sadly, at this time all books are out-of-print. (from retrieversoftruth.com)

  • "Wally Bolé" is an anagram for "Yellow lab".
  • Dr. "Wally"'s image appears to be a photoshopped image of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. His mother Valerie's image appears to be taken from an old black and white image of Julia Child & her exact kitchen, only with someone else's face photoshopped over it.
  • In the two photos of Dr. Bolé below, the area of his face is exactly the same - no change in expression, same shadows and position. The intent seems to be to underline the fact that these pics are faked.
