Thankfully, two fans of the famed cinema canine have joined forces in the hope of creating a historic marker to honor the pooch (whose actual name was "Terry").
The project succeeded after a number of participants lined up to help, and now he's at it again, this time going to bat for Toto.
After seeing a recent TV show featuring a segment with author Steve Goldstein detailing how Toto's original gravesite was lost because of construction of a freeway in California's San Fernando Valley, Myers contacted Goldstein.
Goldstein, the author of "LA's Graveside Companion: Where the V.I.Ps R.I.P.," offered to help Myers in his quest to have a marker placed in honor of Toto.
"Originally, Toto was buried behind Carl Spitz's house in Studio City," Goldstein told AOL News. "Spitz was the famed Hollywood animal trainer, and once the home was razed, it was believed Toto's grave was lost forever.
"We have some info that Spitz may have actually transported Toto's remains to the North Hollywood home he moved to later. Regardless though, J.P. contacted me with his idea and we both feel it would be a good project to try and create a lasting memorial for Toto."
So a new Facebook page was created to help raise funds.
As well, at 11 a.m. Sunday, the pair will have a fundraising table set up in Calabasas, Calif., at the famed L.A. Pet Memorial Park, where the first annual Pet Memorial Day and Blessing of the Animals will take place.
The pet cemetery, which dates back to 1928, features many notable celebrity animals, including Hopalong Cassidy's horse Topper, Rudolph Valentino's Great Dane Kabar, frisky Pete the Pup of "The Little Rascals," Charlie Chaplin's cat and Humphrey Bogart's dog.
"We want to place the marker at this park given its history," Myers told AOL News. "Even though Toto won't actually be here, this is where folks will be able to pay their respects. We're looking to raise $650 for the actual plot, then about another $3,000 for a marker.
"I want to do this to achieve a lasting reminder of a gem of our American culture that is very important to millions of people. This movie and this dog have had a permanent affect on the world, and we need to have a special piece of granite and make it physically permanent. With no plaque or marker for Toto, a wrong needs to be righted."
She also provided some more historic background on the popular pooch.
"Toto, a female Cairn terrier named Terry, starred in about one dozen films -- only 'The Wizard of Oz' gained him film credit. Terry, who was officially renamed Toto after the film, was paid even more than the Munchkin actors. Terry sustained a terrible broken leg during the filming that almost ended his gig.
The Oz Museum, opened in 2003, celebrates all things Oz -- from the earliest book published in 1900 to props used in the Broadway show "Wicked." More than 2,000 artifacts are on display, along with the full-length 1939 MGM feature film showing in a state-of-the-art theater.
Goldstein places Toto in the top three cinema canines of all time. "Lassie, Rin Tin Tin and Toto -- I think those are the top three ever, and so we are anxious to complete this project in honor of a Hollywood legend. It's the least he deserves."
