1878 – A Heroic Dog


“A Heroic Dog – 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:  “A boat was upset. It contained several people, and the dog of which this is the picture. If it had not been for this dog all the people would have drowned. But the brave fellow dived under the water and brought up his mistress. Then he dived again, but he could not find anybody else, so he swam away home, where, of course, everybody made a great fuss over him.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
