This illustration of the gambols between an older cat and a dog comes to us from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals” published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The story accompanying the picture reads: “Our old puss is riding on the dog’s back. She is very fond of doing this, and the dog will walk about the house with friend puss upon his back for a long time. Sometimes however, she repays the kindness by showing herself a bit out of temper, and then the dog will walk away, as much as to say. ‘If you are going to put yourself out, I shall have nothing more to do with you.’ ” Prints available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
