Wordless Wednesday: Gone to the Dogs #14

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.

My granddaddy Fred Slade had a kennel of hunting dogs that he kept at his sister's property in nearby Nansemond County.  But these are not hunting dogs.  I wonder who adopted whom.

    1. They look like they would have been frisky little things.

  2. I wonder if Betty knows the names of the dogs?

    Do you have a picture of Aunt Margaret's German Shepard?
