Wag, wag, wag goes the tail. RPPC. 1900s. Private Collection.
This photograph makes me feel all fuzzy and warm. The puppy is loving its brand new daddy who’s holding it like the big baby it is. It posed front paw over the other, wagging its tail so fast the camera only got to catch the white end trail of it.
And the two ladies of the house watching from behind the window. Had this young gentleman just come from inside to get his new companion? It looks like it could have been a St. Bernard or a Bernese. No matter what breed, this was love at first sight for the both of them, and it shows.

Giving the pup a drink by the wagon. RPPC. Private Collection.
These three are hanging out by an untethered wagon, perhaps a father and his two sons. The bottles they’re holding look ‘dusty fresh’ from the cave; maybe this was the homemade kind of fizzy drink. The puppy on top of the metal milk jug survived and most likely went on the hunt for a fresh bowl of water right after. Ha!
