Ship’s Dog

Oh, what a poor tired dog. This ship dog walks on deck looking very tired from a long voyage. It’s not one of the happiest dog drawings that I’ve included on Reusable Art but I thought it was interesting to show a working dog with a bit of drama and emotion attached. It’s in the public domain, so it’s yours to use as you wish.

The official illustrator for The Christmas Tree was Harrison Weir (1824-1906). It was published in 1885 with a number of Weir’s drawings along with publisher images often used to decorated headings and footers.
