Last night I went on one of my (slightly bourbon-fueled) rants about how the History Channel has turned into reality TV crap. I made a note to write something about that today. But then I reconsidered. I mean…it’s sort of obvious and I don’t see them changing anytime soon so why bother? Instead, here’s two pictures of Civil War era dogs. The top image is Abraham Lincoln’s dog Fido, a lovely pup indeed. The bottom image is anybody’s guess. I just thought (s)he was good looking.
