Wordless Wednesday: Dog Days of Summer #6

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

Counting down the number of photos of dogs in my collection

  1. Our family should have started Pet Co, or at least made dog tutus.

  2. I think I love your dog pictures as much as the Mulberry bush photos! I want to jump into those photos :)
    Happy Wednesday!

  3. It looks like a beach, which means this photo brings to mind water and sand and a shaking dog. I wonder if the tight hold on the dog was prevent a wild run in the sand, a dip in the water, and the subsequent shaking. Have we seen this dog in another recent photo, Wendy? I think the face looks familiar.

    1. Good eye -- yes, there are 2 other pictures with this dog recently: the sailor and the girl named Lucile. Probably this dog was in an older post with an old woman too. Helen had lots of pictures at the beach, so it's hard to tell how many times this dog made an appearance.
