Who could resist such a darling threesome?

THIS IS A SEPIA SATURDAY POST

One of her popular books written in 1929 was, "Then I Saw The Congo" and if you are lucky enough to own a hard copy of this.....it's worth a bit of money.....
Have you ever seen any of the White House dogs close up? Meet Harry Waters and P. E. Allen of the White House police force with some of the White House dogs. Photo taken, On September 23, 1929. Courtesy of Library of Congress Library Washington, D.C.
My favorite is the dog on the left, he looks a bit lean, probably pretty tough, but he/she has a face easy to love.
What better Kodak moment then here...in Boise, Idaho with a king size shadow (the photographer) a Ford car complete with a dog on ...well...isn't that the engine area? Probably not the best spot for a ride, but it'll do for a quick photo of the ladies inside the car.

We have Bob and Rob who participate in Sepia Saturday to thank for our theme of dogs and their humans this week.
Poor puppy I think he's really bored.
I couldn't miss following their theme, and I haven't forgotten my B-29 Bomber Plane story.... although some of you already know the story.
Sadly, my plane story will remain a mystery for now. My photo order at the (usually prompt) Minnesota Historical Society Reproduction department hasn't been completely processed yet!
But, the video clip below ties in nicely with my untold story. Please enjoy this great"Ever After" plane story!
Frances Rehwald they say never wanted a plain house...so she bought a Boeing 747 (at a steal for forty-thousand dollars) to recycle into her home sweet home at an estimated cost of about 2 million dollars. Check out her video here
