“Crib – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “Crib was a Dog who was fond of money. He used often to visit a photographer, who lived next door to his master. One day, when ‘Crib’ was with his friend, a lady who had just had her portrait taken, laid some shillings on the table. ‘Crib’ instantly made a dash at them, and there was no saving them but by throwing him a halfpenny to run after, which he carefully picked up and carried next door to his master.”
