I Love Dogs

I love dogs and I love vintage photos of owners with their beloved pet. There is such a connection ... you can see it in the images.

I was on an Ebay kick a couple of years ago purchasing such items and I have boxes of them. My friend Elana gave me this wonderful book "Prince and other dogs, 1850 - 1940", exactly the kind of book I had envisioned me putting together when I bought all of these photos.

I have a picture of my great grandmother when she was about 3 with a black dog. No wonder we always had black dogs as pets... until now... a new yellow lab puppy lives at our house. Maybe someday, many generations from now, someone will enjoy pictures of him with my kids.

Ohhh, I love old photo's too, and have been collecting them from Tag Sales for some time now. Not for any reason, as I haven't thought of anything to do with them. But I just love looking at all the people and thinking about them and their lives...

Have you ever been to this site? It was created for people to post old snapshots, all random and it is very addicting...

feel, but modern day dog owners
with their pooch! okay, is that
too bossy?
