Dogs are an accessory in Missoula. You can’t turn around without seeing people walking with them, riding bikes with them and hauling them around in the trucks and cars. An enterprising photographer, L. J. Regan came up with the idea of taking pictures of dogs riding around in cars. She has come up with a calendar for 2014 featuring those shots. She was nice enough to share a couple.

She also has a Montana connection, a brother who lives and works in Livingston. She has also travelled here several times and really likes our Big Sky Country. Could make an interesting Christmas gift for the dog lover on your list.
