Black-and-white image of three figures and a dog, seated around a table. There is one figure, partially visible from behind, in the left side of the image, another figure is visible from behind in the right side of the image, and there is another, male figure in profile view, turned toward the left side of the image. He is seated next to a white dog that is seated in a chair at the table, facing the viewer. The man's proper right hand is above the dog's head, and the dog is wearing a dress hat. There are coffee cups, tea pots, creamers, and sugar bowls on the table, and there are windows lining the wall behind the figures.
