Dad in his teen years with his buddies. Who do you think was in charge?

Molly was Mom's dog who she loved more than anything. Dad wasn't really wanting another dog, but he had to accept it. After Mom died, Molly was Dad's dog. She went wherever he went. She died a couple of months ago.
This picture was taken by me, while Dad walked over to the patio door to look outside and she of course, joined him.
