A Dog’s Life

My mother lived sixteen years with her aunt and uncle, S. George and Valeria Cochron–and Valeria’s pampered pooch Bobo–in Nashville, Tennessee.  One of mother’s assigned duties was giving Bobo his weekly bath. She hated that job!
          After hearing Mother’s stories about the much spoiled Bobo, I was throughly entertained when I came across this series of photos among Valeria’s things. They were taken in the house at 2110 15th Avenue South, probably in the early 1930s. Bobo1 

In the first image,  Bobo is intent on joining the photo.

Bobo3Bobo can’t resist giving his favorite lady a big smooch! The guests are entertained. Mother and Uncle George are not.
