Me and You and a Dog Named.....

In honor of National Dog Day, let's take a look at images of furry friends from the Archives' collection.

Pupper, doggy, hound, bowwow, beastie, pooch. No matter what we call dogs, they have always been man’s best friend.  In honor of National Dog Day, let’s take a look at the pooches that pop up in the Archives' collections.  In addition, I’ll debut my best little furry friend with her first Smithsonian appearance.
