“The Dog and the Donkey – 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, takes the form of a poem and reads as follows: “The Donkey trudged with steady pace, But ever straight along the track; The Dog began a nimble race, For half a mile, and then ran back, When half the journey this was run, The Dog lay panting on the grass; But just as when he’d first begun, And still unwearied, went the Ass.”
