Christmas 1963 or 1964?

I’m guessing. What’s amazing about this picture is that it’s a Polaroid. It’s pretty incredible that it survived at all given how it’s been stored and smashed around over the years. I have a vague memory of scanning and uploading this picture before, so forgive the duplication if I did.

The dog is Brandy, our first pet. My heart clenched seeing her in this shot, proving that love, for pets, never dies.

    Those Polaroids hold up… I still have several cameras… and pictures of my children.
