Just spent the last 30 minutes looking for these. Came to the conclusion a) Far too many photographs, b) do not remember an awful lot of them, it's like being able to entertain oneself. Handy! Still cannot find the entire collection, no idea what I was thinking....
They'll show up. Meanwhile, wish members post would their favorite era ( or kinda ) photo of pet and pet's chosen companion. Never get tired of these. Even regimental mascots were really much-loved pets. You can't fool me- animals who maybe provided some unconditional love and loyalty during a time when all was sudden death appearing from nowhere, not lurking in shadows, rocketing at them out of brilliant sky. And ' love '? At home, ' Home ' being the furtherest thing imaginable from carnage, mud and men torn limb from limb.
Ok, so maybe the camel isn't a house pet but someone love him!
You just knew Rufus Ingalls was also a big softy for animals!
One of the circus parades, forget where this one was. This fellow looks extremely well cared for.
There's a rumor that there is only one photograph of a Confederate soldier and his dog? It isn't true. There really are a few, thankfully!
No, pretty sure he's sleeping!
