    Queen Catherine and her dogs. I would NOT be brave enough to hold that many borzoi leashes while walking down stone steps. :rofl1:

    Argoss, a Russian import who won a silver medal for wolf hunting, and became the first American champion. He's really really nice, I'd be happy to have a dog with his type.

    Great idea for a thread Steph. The pictures are very interesting...just to think that people way back then were enjoying dogs similar to what we have today and that our dogs came from those dogs so long ago. Some are very old breeds, such as the Chihuahua. And of course, like most, they've gone through changes to one degree or another. Here are some of my current breed, the Chihuahua.


    Alessandro Botticelli (Italian, 1444-1510)


    Scenes from the Life of Moses
    (c. 1481-1482)
    Sistine Chapel, Rome, Italy



    [​IMG]

    Vittore Carpaccio (Italian 1472-1526)


    Two Women/ "Two Courtesans" (1510)
    Oil on wood
    Museo Civico Correr, Venice

    A Venetian painter, his life is poorly documented, and it is not known with whom he trained, but it is generally agreed that the chief influence on his work was Gentile Bellini. After two major commissions, Carpaccio's career declined, his work seeming old-fashioned, and he remained virtually forgotten until Ruskin revived his reputation in the 19th century. He is now rated as second only to Giovanni Bellini as the outstanding Venetian painter of his generation.

    Western Mexico, Colima State,

    Colima Dog Effigy -
    Ceramic with red slip paint
    North Carolina Museum of Art

    The animal most frequently depicted in Colima art is the hairless dog, today known as the Chihuahua. In addition to raising dogs as a food source, many peoples of highland Mexico believed that a dog accompanied a person's soul on the journey into the underworld. Discovery of these dog images in tombs suggests they were intended as companions for the deceased.

    Supposedly a long-ago photo of the now extinct Blue Paul, brought here by the Irish and Scots who settled in this region. Interestingly, we have a significant incidence of blue and blue-brindle APBTs in this area, and they're very true to type.

    Oh, yes, and once upon a time our military had a REAL mascot breed -- now they're banned from the bases.

    Isn't he? Nothing like the huskies today, but he was such a bear of a little dude...as opposed to Togo. And Fritz, who looks way more like modern huskies.

    Here's some more I found:

    Togo and sire. At the left of the photo is Togo's sire (father), Suggen, who was Seppala's racing team leader before World War I.

    Togo was a bit of a favorite, as you can see.

    Those are wonderful pictures Sit Stay. I love them.

    All the pictures are so interesting. It's fun to see how they looked back in the earlier times.

    you do realize that Cortez didn't land in Mexico until 1519 and so according to the AKC history those couldn't possibly be chihuahuas in the Boticelli & Carpaccio paintings

    That's why I wrote: "And of course, like most, they've gone through changes to one degree or another."

    The Chihuahua has a speculative history, a lot of theory involved... and modern type Chihuahuas aren't likely all that old.

    Found this image in an old book, was always suspicious it was a Beauceron, until someone elsewhere posted the entire photo (uncropped) and you can see her dew claws.
