Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, & their poodle, Basket | France, 1944

When you google these two famous lesbians, this fancy pup is in all of their photos- it gets me every time. Because of his very famous moms, this poodle was photographed by the likes of Cecil Beaton, Man Ray, LIFE Magazine, and many others. You can tell how central and important he was to their lives.

“I am I because my little dog knows me even if the little dog is a big one.“ -Gertrude Stein
