Old Photos of sheepdogs and sheep

Here are some old photos of sheep and sheepdogs. You will notice that all of the sheepdog range in different sizes, colors and breeds.  I love looking at old photos as it gives us a glimpse into our past.

Wait, all but one of these are paintings. The one with the overweight Bernese Mountain Dog is clearly contemporary.

The one with the little girl and the oversized Shetland Sheepdog is probably a mid-century book illustration. Idealization of farm life was big then.

The landscape with the flock of sheep and dog is beautiful!

I do love the actual hand-tinted photo though. I collect those kind of postcards from pre-war Japan. They are indeed a window on the past.
