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.

Smoky - 1940525 viewsA quote from Erin Phelps about her parents dog, Smoky, "My parents, Bob and Lois Bishop, were feeding bummer lambs. They and this one little tiny dog, ran thousands of sheep on government lease land, what is now Ginger Rogers Ranch, and the Espourteille Ranch also thousand more acres. Smoky knew every lamb and mommy. Here she wants my mother to leave this baby lamb alone. Fortunately, the lambs desire for the bottle won out."
