Day 11...A Dog's Day!

I am writing this
as my dog, Sweetie,
is piled in the middle of the bed...
hogging the middle..
showing us who is boss!

The pooch in this photo
must have been boss...
and very special to his family!
Can you imagine such an
extravagance as this vintage portrait?

What do you think
his name was?
Blackie?
Didn't everyone have a dog
named Blackie?
Midnight?
When I was a child, I had
a totally black dog that looked
much like this one...
his name was Jet.

What about this one?
Isn't he absolutely beautiful?

You're assuming he is a "he"...what if "her" name was Josephine?

He sure is beautiful, and does look like the boss! :) Vintage photos have so much character... I just love your header! We once had a jet black cat that we named Madmardigan... something silly and a bit out of the ordinary! She was the color of midnight, we loved her so much!

When I was born, my dad had a black cocker spaniel named, "Shad". Have pictures of the dog and myself. The dog in your picture reminded me of Shad, except my dad always shaved Shad's hair! Again, that was my dad!!!
Take care, Sue

My little doggies have really been a comfort to me. One's tan and one's black - Sally Sue and Joey Too! Love our doggies, don't we?
