Cute animal pictures = art? Sure!

    Leave it to Slate to dedicate a slideshow to fantastic, old-timey photos of dogs. The pictures were taken by photographer Elliott Erwitt, and the subjects are dogs from around the world. Here is, by far, my favorite, slide number 16:

    This chihuahua looks absolutely elated to be wearing such a fancy sweater, especially in the company of strappy-sandal lady.

    What’s funny to me is because this picture is in black and white and was taken on the streets of New York City in 1946, it’s art. But if it were taken in color in 2008, it would just be another post on Cute Overload. And even that would be an honor. Oh, the good old days where cuteness was respected.
