I’ve noticed, in my collection of vintage photographs, that animals, even doted on lap dogs, are left scruffy. Unkempt even. These weren’t animals as fashion accessories, but rather companions that were expected to do the things that animals do. I’m hopeful that after the photo shoot, that this little girl got out of her pristine white outfit, put on her woolen leggings and worn jumper, and went on adventures with her dog. She certainly looks like she’s done with that bow and romper, doesn’t she?
