WORDLESS WEDNESDAY--DOGS ARE PART OF THE FAMILY

Beloved Dog
owned by Isabelle Williams Hamlin and
her husband William Earl Hamlin
Utica, New York
Isabelle (b. 1894, d. 1966)
Earl (b. 1892, d. 1953)

This was my Aunt Bell's favorite pooch. Unfortunately, I don't know its name. Somehow they got the dog to pose for an artist, whose name I cannot decipher. The date the artist painted this picture appears to be 1925. Isabelle and Earl did not have children.

Isabelle and Earl at one time owned the Littlecote Hobby Shop in Utica, New York. See my prior post at: http://www.theartofgenealogy.com/2012/09/city-directories-littlecote-hobby-shop.html

  1. Touching. Wonderful that this canine piece of art survived the years.

  2. Thanks, Jody. I found the picture in a box in a basement in Central New York. The edges were very frayed, so I had it framed and now, hopefully, it will last for years. It's by my front door, and it makes me smile whenever I see it.
