Note on artwork:
A series of separate vignettes are presented within the image. Each is a light-hearted treatment of animals: terrier puppies hunting by some sacks as a mouse escapes, an older dog looking on; a bull-dog looking askance at a small terrier; a lively dog running with a stick in its mouth, and a dog in a kennel with another on its roof.
