Vintage photo of a bulldog getting a pedicure

“Ouch! I hope the boys don’t hear about this.” Or so Sad Sam seems to be saying as he disdainfully offers a paw during a grooming for a local dog show. And Sad Sam closes his eyes to shut out the embarrassing sight of the trimming at the hands of his mistress, Alice Poe of Merriam, Kansas  Oct. 29, 1952.   PHOTO BY WILLIAM P.

You might be wondering why I am posting a vintage photo of a dog getting a pedicure on my art blog.

I posted this photo by the Associated Press because I simply love the photo. It makes me laugh. I love old photos because they take me back in time.

The bulldog’s expression in this photo is filled with such contempt that you can really understand what he is feeling.

And I’m the ArtisticBulldog so of course this photo has meaning to me.
