“My Dog-Friend – 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: “I have a friend I much admire -, I hope you’ll think me right -, His eyes and nose are black as sloes, The rest of him is white, When other dogs are heard to bark, With rage my friend is wild; But meet his foe once face to face, No lamb could be more mild.”
