Black-and-white image of a small, black and white dog in an interior scene with an old woman in the background. The dog is standing on a small, wooden chair, and facing the viewer. The floor is made of stone, and there are several pieces of furniture that are partially visible in the bottom right edge of the image. The woman is wearing a black dress and she is seated in a chair in the right side of the image. There is a wooden cane leaning against the side of her chair. Behind the woman there is a wall with a fireplace. The mantle is covered with a piece of fabric that is decorated with a floral pattern. Above the mantle, there are various images hung on the wall, the largest of which is a crucifixion image.
