Wordless Wednesday: Dog Days of Summer #8

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.

    1. It is cute. I'd say there was a proud momma or grandma nearby.

    1. That is a cool old stroller. Parents back then weren't concerned about how to carry their Starbucks.

  5. What a great photo from so far back. I've never seen a stroller quite like that one. Perfect for Kid and Pooch. It's been really fun seeing all the photos in your collection of dogs. John Jr. has quite a hair cut, too.

    1. It looks like John Jr. slept on it funny.

  6. Oh Wendy, this is an adorable picture! You have such an amazing collection and I hope someone comes forward and tells you who this darling little "last name unknown" is.

    1. These poodle pictures tickle me because there are so many of them -- those dogs went everywhere with their humans.

  8. Oh! That is such a cute photo!! And look at that old stroller. Is that a wicker seat?

    1. It appears to be completely wicker except for that back extension which evidently could hold a dog or maybe a bag of groceries.

  9. Such a cute photo. When you posted last week's Wordless Wednesday dog photo I wondered to myself about why people would take photos of their dogs. And then I opened Picasa and realized that I have way too many photos of my dog. I think it's especially grand to see people with their
    dogs in old photos.

    1. Whenever I see family pets in old photos, I think, "Oh, an antique dog."
