18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Big Dog with a Big Heart for his new friend.

This is my dog, Tank, a Great Pyrenees. I had wanted to get a photo of my 2 week old granddaughter under the Christmas Tree. Tank came up and sniffed her and decided she was his. After my daughter and granddaughter left, Tank came back to the tree looking for her for 3 days. This photo means a lot. It shows the immediate love and protection a dog can have. It shows a special dog that was very gentle with children but very protective of me and any children he was around. Tank lost his battle with Cancer in June 2020. This photo was taken the Christmas of 2018 with my Samsung Note 5.
