“Snob saving his Master – 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: “Snob’s master lived in India. One day, just as he was going to put on one of his boots, ‘Snob’ dragged it away. He tried to get it, but ‘Snob’ would not let him have it. At last his master began to wonder if there really was anything in the boot. He went as near as the dog would let him, and thought he saw something move inside. Presently out came a small snake. He killed it at once, and found it to be one of such a poisonous nature that its bite would most likely have caused his death.”
