Sleeping Puppies

Such a sweet little drawing from a vintage children’s magazine – sleeping puppies. This black and white dog drawing dates back to at least 1886 when it was included in an August edition of the magazine. The drawing was labeled “Sleepy little fellows!” but did not appear to accompany a story – so there was no other information provided about these cutie pies.

We have four sleeping puppies in a small pile lying on what appears to be hay. One has their back to us but we can see the cute little faces of the other three. Such a charming dog drawing that is sure to add some “awwww” to your next creative work.
