Missed that one from March @LoyaltyOfDogs !

Do we have this one yet? Scrolling 7 pages seems arduous- and anyway, if so he's still cute. It's another DC., General White and staff.

Sitting at the feet of the second seated man from right. Dog seems to be looking up at his boss. Brown/white terrier ?? Ghostly image due to dog moving during exposure.

You're right, @JPK Huson 1863 and @Llewellyn, this little fellow almost escaped notice! He seems to have the same attitude toward picture-taking that General Stoneman's pointer had.

To be fair, General Stoneman's dog does show her better side in other photos from the same series taken near Fair Oaks, Virginia, in 1862. In this one, she's visibly either pregnant or nursing. Wish we had a picture of her pups.

I've always struggled to like Stoneman and this image helps hugely! Of course, tend to have a little of the same problem with Custer albeit for different reasons- but all those dogs means somewhere in there both men were big old softies.

Show me someone who actively dislikes dogs and I'll seriously wonder ' What's up with that? '

@Llewellyn , nice! Thank you and trust Bill Murry! I'm sure there are exceptions, people who haven't had the op to be around dogs? Still. It's a little weird how accurate that can be.

Reminds me of our old boy we lost when he was 16. Only bit 2 people- both just hard nips, not what you'd call a bite. Both were plain, old up to no-good. He saved me the trouble of doing it.

I am pleased to add this photo with the kind permission of its owner, Codie Eash, who has posted it on his Facebook page in hope of finding some information to identify the unit or location. Mr. Eash, a writer and historian, received the photograph as a gift from his paternal grandfather when, as a child, he first expressed an interest in studying the Civil War. Among the interesting details is a large dog lying beneath the chair of the soldier at the right of the scene. Beside them is what appears to be a bucket. The accompanying photos on Mr. Eash's page show a portion of a handwritten note on the back that is cut off and, unfortunately, offers little information other than what appears to be the word "Mass" and some obscure numbers. Garry Adelman of the American Battlefield Trust suggested the location could be the Parade Grounds at Fort Monroe, Virginia. If anyone is familiar with the photo or has information that might aid in identifying it, you may contact Mr. Eash through his Facebook page. I'm eager to hear what members might know. Thank you.

I like this photo. From what I can see that pooch has that dog "smile". He looks to be of good size and solid weight. Seems he was well taken care of.

Looks like the photographer told them all to look off to their right, but three of them (top center & the 2 bearded gents seated on the left), figured "I'd better keep an eye on this guy! Tryin' to boss me around!"

I don't think we've seen this dog of the 29th New York Infantry before. He's pictured with three identified officers and other soldiers. And, just as interesting as the dog, is a soldier high in a tree above the group, who is pointing to something in the distance. Is he a lookout? Is that a stick lying across the dog's midsection? Does that have any significance?

The image is a 2019 addition to the Liljenquist Family Collection of Civil War Photographs in the Library of Congress. The officers are identified as "Kannig, standing on left, Schluter, seated on left, and Chelius, seated on right." The description states the image shows three identified soldiers and five unidentified soldiers, but I see a total of only seven men, not eight. Does someone see an eighth man? Does anyone have information about a dog of the 29th NY?
