Dogs and their people back in the day (11 photos)

Looking back at images from people enjoying time spending time with their dogs

From the archives of the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library:

Dogs have always been a source of joy in many people’s lives.

For many dog owners, seeing that happy face and wagging tail when we walk into our homes brightens our day. They have become integral and irreplaceable members of our families.

Over the course of this COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an increase in people adopting dogs in order to help cope with loneliness and mental health issues.

Here are some images from past years of Sault Ste. Marie residents enjoying time spent with their faithful dogs.

Each week, the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library and its Archives provides SooToday readers with a glimpse of the city’s past.
