Description

Black-and-white image of a female figure holding a small dog in her arms, across her proper left shoulder. The woman is turned so that the dog's head is in front of her face. The dog has long, light-colored fur that is similar in color to the woman's hair. The woman's hair is down, and blowing across the face of the dog. The woman is wearing a dark, knitted sweater.
