Black-and-white image of a Collie dog and a male figure, standing on a sidewalk in front of an iron gate that is painted white. The dog is seated in the bottom left quadrant of the image, and is facing the viewer. The man is standing in the right side of the image, and holding a dark umbrella in his proper left hand. He is petting the top of the dog's head with his right hand. The man is wearing a black hat, a dark sweater, and black pants. There is a house in the background, behind the gate.
