A pair of dogs stand guard over their master’s sack. It would make a fun image to start a children’s story of two dog friends seeing the world together.
The names of the people involved in creating this vintage animal image are unfortunately lost to history. But, since Animal Stories with Pictures was published before 1869, this image and all the others on Reusable Art from this book are in the public domain.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
