    I’d watch these two solve crimes, change a tire, or even make a sandwich! Adorable

    I’d like to think the dog’s name is Dad, and the man’s name is Tinker.

    I had a corgi/dachshund mix that looked a lot like Tinker. His name was Billy, and he had an identical face.

    This wasn’t in southern California, right?

    Grandpa had a chihuahua when my dad was younger and it hated dad for some reason

    I lived through that time period and I can tell you there was not any point at which that hat could be considered “cool” (unless it was for a 5 year old playing railroad engineer). Dad was a handsome dude, though. Let this be a lesson for all of us–no dorky hats in the Olan Mills photos!

    Got to love a fat weiner dog. My mom had. Female fatty named Gretchen. Her ears were pierced & she pooped every night of her life in the hallway that led to all the bedrooms. Sometimes she accidentally pooped on the pee pad left out for her. Mostly she pooped right over the edge of the pad.

    Is that a railroad/engineer hat? My dad had one and I’m pretty sure my brother and I had one each as well. But ours had the narrow white and blue pinstripes. My father was not at all associated with the railroad and we only had a model train and track big enough to go around the Xmas tree so no huge basement “Land Of Make Believe” set up.
