This is Baby Cox (on the right!) of Tramore, Co. Waterford. No idea what of dog the toy on the left is supposed to be, but it must have been very snuggly for a child to cuddle up to. The furry beast in between was a little confusing at first. Did try to fathom a species, until I spotted it in another Cox family – it's a ladies' fur muff!

Voting can now commence as to whether this is "a boy or a child"? (Is it a boy or a child was allegedly the traditional question asked of new parents, i.e. child = girl!)

Date: Circa 1899

    According to the AKC, the most popular dog is the Labrador Retriever.

    I have the sweetest yellow Labrador retriever, and he couldn’t be a better family dog. He’s great around all ages, is very smart and obedient, gentle, and energetic. He’s my definition of a great family dog.

    I haven’t read an article, but Animal Planet shows ten videos on the top 10 best family dogs, the Labrador retriever being one of them.
    Here’s the link:

    The labrador retriever is the most popular breed in the United States and I believe Canada. Dog
    Fancy has a article about them. So do a ton of other places. Labs are the most popular family breed. The most popular dog breed registered in both the United States and the United Kingdom is the lab. The golden retriever and german shepherd come in second and third. If you don’t believe me, look on this site:

    It’s not a dog at all! It’s a cross between a kangaroo and a sheep and is better known as a "wooly jumper"!!!! My vote says that of course it’s a child – nobody would be so cruel as to put an outfit like that on a boy – would they????
