As far as I know, this is the first known photo of me with a dog: (sorry about the quality - I just took a pic of the original with my phone)
That's me and our beagle, Barney - the first of many pups I would love.
And, yes, I'm old. My childhood was lived in black & white. (Technically I think color film existed during my childhood, but my parents went with the cheaper B&W until I was about 4. From that age on, like Wizard of Oz, my childhood becomes colorful!)
Do you have a "first known photo" of yourself with a pet as a kid?
