There have been many great photo finds during the great closet clean-out of 2012.  This photo is certainly one of my all-time favorites.  I can’t help but smile each and every time I look at this picture.

What I know.  My Great Great Aunt loved photography and took many pictures of her family as well as children living in their neighborhood in Charlotte.

What I can’t figure out.  Is this little tot a boy or a girl?  Why oh why would anyone be put through that awful bowl cut.  Why is the dog so happy and the little tot so mad?  Is it because this child is a boy and he is really not pleased with the white dress?

What I have decided.  The dog prefers to go by Sammy Jr.  His given name was Edgar, but he feels like that is too pretentious.
