Mysterious photo found in (a wondering) dog's collar (by animal control officers)
CNN ^ | Jan 22, 2014 | Dorrine Mendoza, CNN

When animal control officers were called to a Greenville, South Carolina, neighborhood to pick up a wandering pit bull on a cold Monday in December, they didn't expect a mystery to unfold.

But inside a fold of the dog's collar, they found a wrinkled black-and-white photo. It had no name or date. A smiling man seated on a railing looks straight into the camera -- but, beyond that, the photo offers no clues.

The friendly tan canine, now named Soldier because the man in the photo may be wearing a military uniform, was skinny but well-behaved, said Susan Bufano, community relations coordinator with Greenville County Animal Care. He was not neutered or microchipped.

What was the dog wondering about? Maybe he was wondering who the guy in the photograph is.

Good thing they called animal services. If they called the cops, the dog would have been shot, especially since he looks to be part ‘Bully’.

For some reason this post reminds me of the song, "Riding With Private Malone".

I expect all the wondering got him to wandering and then he got lost.

Mrs. Stormdog and I were talking about them today, and Crabby Appleton, too.

Appears to be wearing old style fatigues that the AF/Army stopped using in the ‘80’s. I cannot see if he is wearing any rank insignia, name tape or US Army/US Air Force tape. The pockets are level so it doesn’t appear to be Viet-Nam era fatigues. AF used a white t-shirt up until the mid 80’s, I think the Army switched from a white t-shirt to OD t-shirt before that. It may be a basic training photo.
