Nate Heywood and Hank Heywood on Silver[src]

Silver was a Lone Ranger's horse in a television series.


At some point in his childhood, Hank Heywood watched a TV series in which Lone Ranger's horse was named Silver. That inspired him to name his pet Labrador after it.

Decades later Hank used "Silver" as his e-mail password, indirectly referencing both his pet and the series. Nate Heywood tricked him into saying the name of the pat as a part of father-son bonding talk during the Time Bureau mission in 1973.[1]
