“The Shepherd’s 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: “One man sold a flock of sheep to another, and lent him his dog besides, to help drive them. But this bad man wished to steal the dog, and locked him up. One day the dog got away. He ran to where all this man’s sheep were feeding and made them come with him; then he drove them before him, back to his own master.”
