“I’m so sick and tired of everyone calling me a dog. ‘Look at that Enid,’ they all say. ‘What a dog.’ So I’m getting my hair done, then a manicure, and then — look out, world, it’s a brand new me!”

“Found these amazing photos on BuzzFeed France of dogs and other animals that helped in the war effort. Thought they would be good for Flashback Friday. Keep up the good work! Sharon B-C (Western Australia.)”

Flashback Friday: My, What A Big Lens U Have!

Quoting About.com: “An Korean puppy holds his ground in an “eye to eye” encounter with a huge Fifth Air Force aerial camera, one of the “Eyes of the Far East Air Forces.” The camera is an Air Force K-19B used by night-flying RB-26 aircraft of the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing to photograph enemy airfields, railroad marshalling yards, bridges, supply dumps and troop movements. (Circa June 1951.)
