Keeping History Alive

Adelaide Watson Brenton (1867-1945)671 viewsAdelaide Watson Brenton (1867-1945) "Adelaide Brenton was my great grandmother, she lived with my great grandfather and grandfather who owned a horse ranch (Lowbrooke Ranch) in Carmichael, Alberta, Canada. I Can't confirm but it appears she is holding what looks to being an Aussie type pup. It appears to have many Aussie characteristics/markings. Also the head shape resembles an Aussie, don't you think? On the back of the photo she wrote, 'Me and my new puppy'. To the far right of the photo you can see what appears to be the white butt of a dog with a black patch and no tail." quote Tracy Libby. The postcard at the bottom appears to be an Aussie type dog was mailed from Rome, Italy. The postmark on this postcard 1895.
