Vintage Chihuahua

Two very old photos of what appears to be the same little dog, enjoying some leisure time on the grounds of a large institution. Apparently, there weren't any leash laws at that time.

Summer Day

The boys enjoyed a happy romp on a hot and sunny early summer day. They ran till they were panting like mad and then fell into the cool green grass for a quick rest, only to get right back up to chase insects and shadows. When they'd had enough, they retired to the coolness of the house, drank cold water with ice cubes in it and napped the afternoon away.

Some Pricey Poop

ST. LOUIS (AP) — This is why your mother says to wash your hands after handling money: A St. Louis worker found $58 — packed in dog poop.

Steve Wilson works for DoodyCalls Pet Waste Removal. On a recent call, he noticed money sticking out from doggie doo. Wilson wasn't sure what to do, but eventually pulled out the bills, sanitized them, placed them in a plastic zip-locked bag and returned them to the customer. It turned out to be $58.

The company says the money was torn, but the serial numbers were identifiable, which means the bills could be returned to a bank and replaced with new money. The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists says Wilson is the first person in his profession to find and report money in dog poop.

The Boys

A sunny afternoon in the dining room with the boys. Bram can usually be found with his face pointed towards the warmth of the sun (even if the rest of him is in shadow) and Edison will always have his serious but gentle face on (unless Bram is poking him while he's trying to sleep). The two faces of serenity, chihuahua-style.

Worth a Thousand Words (or a Maybe a Bit Less)

Some photos tell a story far better than others. You look at them and an entire backstory instantly unfolds in your mind, complete with a goofy conversation told in funny voices. This photo screams not only one story, but several different ones, and every one of them is impossibly silly. I'd share my thoughts with you, but I imagine that you have your own little narrative currently running through your head right now and I wouldn't want to disturb you.
