Hi! I love your blog! As a big history buff I love seeing how patterns in time repeat themselves. I also love the funny columns you dig up. Now that I’m done gushing, do you happen to have any old photos of chow chow around? I’m not seeing many of them on your blog.

Thank you very much! Here are a few Chow Chows:
