And a cool postcard. Notice the message tube on the collar.


The look in that dog's eyes is priceless, like "Heck, no! I'm not running through there! If it is so important, why don't you run the message yourself!"

Great collection, Eric.  You may remember I've always been a dog lover.  These are outstanding images.

This photo reminds us of one of the sad realities of that. "Here lies a loyal messenger dog". One of the only German dog grave photos I have seen.

Thanks Steve. I of course remember the Tiger and Daisy days very well. I miss them both.

Not much interest in doggies so this will be my last one. 

 

Brig, this is one of my "pet" photos. I am a sucker for Doxies.

Dog is definitely the focus of that photo...

 

I think working dog portraits are relatively scarce and you buy them all so no one else has any to share!

 

What's in the dogs mouth in photo 22 (post 35)?

Eric, some of us more silent types are enjoying the hell out of your pictures.

Same here! Fantastic thread. I have a pic of my grandfather (WWI USMC) with a German Shepherd. Later pics show one with him at home with one and I wonder if he was a bringback!

What's in the dogs mouth in photo 22 (post 35)?  I believe he is holding the message pouch. I don't think they used the collar to carry the messages until WW2

 

Here is another one. Not sure if this little guy (or gal) is a pet or a mascot (Kompanie Hunde

Obviously not a photograph but I liked this original little drawing the owner did of his/her dog because of the notation on the back. 

 

His name was WOLF. He was born in 1934 and was killed in an air raid on June 17, 1944.

 

RIP

Amazing collection Eric! I never would have thought there would be so many portraits of German officers with their dogs! Incredible that you’ve found so many, and they’re all fantastic! Thanks for sharing them!

Thanks Rick for commenting. Happy to hear you enjoyed them. 

 

This is a somewhat rare piece. Photo album of a dog handler who served with the Freikorps from 1919 to 1931.

In 1919. Notice the Freikorps collar insignia and the Machine Gun badges on the arm.
