A gallery of dogs and other characters

Scrabbling around collections of amateur and family photos, several common themes naturally emerge. In previous posts I’ve covered fishing and beachgoing. This time it’s pets – mostly dogs. People do love their pets, and they do love to photograph them. Here is just a handful of pet photos from our collection.
