Vintage dogs and their owners

People have always liked having their photo taken with their pet dogs. The sun is definitely over the yardarm for this couple and their dog.

Here are some more disreputable types out on the town and taking their dogs with them.

Everyone likes to be seen with their dogs from the country gent to the fashionable lady.

Someone’e really gone to town on this one, dressing the girl as Diana, Goddess of the hunt, with her dog and arrows. The whole thing hand tinted. Probably not her personal pet.

This girl and her dog are much more believable.

More women and their dogs. The couple with their dog come from a series of photos of women on holiday in the 1920s with a distinctly Sapphic vibe. The sole woman and her dog looks very 1960s.

All photos from my personal collection as usual.
