old photos starring dogs

This weekend I had the pleasure of spending time with an older friend while we worked on his memoirs. He's 89, and in the course of the day showed me a very old photo album of his relatives from around 1920-25. Some of them were holding cats and dogs - oh, how I wished we'd had a scanner handy.

So today I went looking for antique pet photos and I found some all right, courtesy of a photoset on Flickr called "Just Mutts." But how can one think of it as just mutts when you can behold a lavishly dressed dog, a tiny puppy eye to eye with you, or a dachshund one beat too late?
