Just another Dog Day in Europe….ca. 1900-10.

A while Back, I posted a dog team working in Japan :[email protected]/2456262386/

Flickr member dschinny2001 answered with this one she found on another photostream :

And she recently took this in Germany :[email protected]/2746721158/

That reminded me of my original Japanese "Dog Team" photo, that made reference to BELGIUM…. but never offered the photo to back up my claims.

So…. this post is my answer for dschinny2001’s comments and links !

Next thing you know, we will be trading Bubble Gum and Baseball cards !

See :…



Here’s the story that came with this original gelatin silver-print 3-D photo :

"……You are on the outskirts of the town. The country woman you meet here is on her way home to a farm several miles out. When she left home early this morning those big, shiny copper cans were full of milk, and she walked beside the dogs; now that the load consists only of empty cans, she treats herself to a ride.

This mode of transporting milk from the dairy to the city customers is passing out of fashion ; the woman’s daughters will hardly follow the picturesque custom. For years and years, it was nearly universal, and the foreigners in Belgium were always delighted with the quaintness of theses little cars drawn by just such big dogs with shaggy,yellowish hair and wolf-like ears.

One of the most famous dog stories ever written was Ouida’s "Dog of Flanders" — a tale of devoted friendship between a Flemish boy and the faithful beast that went with him in this very way, carrying copper cans of fresh milk to Antwerp. It is a story which has been read all around the world — a classic in its way, translated into many different languages.

The thills show that this cart was made for a single animal, and one of larger size than the small dogs in this team. In the old country, people are used to makeshifts, and neither the poorly matched team, nor the ill-fitting shafts worry the driver……"

Dog Food Nutrition For Healthy Canines

Dog Food Nutrition For Healthy Canines

Whether you have a new puppy that is full of energy or you have an older dog that you are trying to keep as healthy and strong as possible, you’ll find that one of the most important things that you can do is check out what is going into their dog food. Just like humans, dogs need good, healthy food to thrive, and though they can get by for a long time by eating food that is just so-so for them, you’ll be surprised by how much difference good food can make.

Take a look at the ingredients in the dog food that you are currently buying. Just like with human food, the first ingredient is going to be the one that makes up most of the food. When you see corn, or soy or wheat as the first ingredient, this is your first hint that you will need to switch foods. You will also find that if your dog has a weak stomach or has issues with eating or digestion, this may be the cause. There are many dogs that have undiagnosed allergies to the food that they eat, and you may notice a real improvement as soon as the food is switched out.

Protein is very important to canines and should be the first ingredient. Moreover it should be a protein that is from an animal and not grain. It should not be anything “by products.” These can be body parts of animals like the neck, head, guts, feet, lungs, and bones.

Believe it or not some pet food manufacturers substitute meat protein by using corn, gluten, and wheat. These ingredients in fact commonly cause allergies in pets. When your dog food contains too many grains your dog is not getting the nutrients that he or she would need to thrive.

Another thing to consider is what preservatives are being used. Try to avoid foods that contain the preservatives BHT, Ethoxyquin, or BHA. These can be harmful to your pet in the long run. Instead, look for dog foods that contain natural sources like vitamins as a preservative.

Just like humans, dogs are what they eat. A good healthy foundation of nutritious food is vital for your young puppy or senior. Dogs also age faster than humans so it is important to feed a healthy and balanced diet to help the immune system ward off free radicals and all that comes with aging.

Something else to keep in mind is the cost of food. Usually when something is more expensive it might be assumed it a better quality of food. This is not always the case. Ingredients are important, where the ingredients come from and how they are formulated to make the brand. If you are beginning to check labels make sure you follow some of the guidelines above.

Healthy treats are just as important. When you start feeding a premium dog food, don’t forget about the premium treats. You might also find that your canine may like some veggies as treats!

If you are interested in your dog’s health and want to see him thrive, take some time and review the ingredients in the food and treats that he/she is eating.
