Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much I enjoy reading your posts, looking at the little treasures from days gone by that you find tucked away. Thanks for adding something fun to my day.

This is probably my favorite picture you've found thus far! I always wish I knew more about the people in the pictures you find. Thank you again for a little piece of happiness every day.

Fantastic photo! Love the gent's proud stance, and the pure joy on the pup's face. Remarkable find!
