Goodness, no

This picture brought tears to my eyes.

Dogcatchers

The guy in the white shirt is probably thinking about how he'd just as soon step on any more dogs as put his right hand anywhere near their mouths. These still-weaning pups all have open mouths, closed eyes. Looks like Mommy fell victim.

Humane Society

I've got a feeling they're not working with the Humane Society, either. I don't even think it was around till the 50's or so.

Either way, it is pretty interesting to see pets pre-Humane Society, I wonder if this was the norm in animal handling?

Awwwwww 2

You know, at first glance, they don't look all that different from the pig.

Awwww......

I'll take 'em.

Breed

They look like beagles.

Woof.

I've got feeling they're not working with the Humane Society.
