Description

Black-and-white image of a chihuahua standing on a sidewalk, next to a woman's feet. The dog is standing in the left side of the image, facing the viewer, and it is wearing a light-colored sweater over its body. The woman's feet are in the right side of the image and they are turned toward the dog. She is wearing black wedge sandles and a skirt that is nearly ankle-length. The background is out of focus but the side of a building is visible in the left side of the image, there are more figures on the sidewalk, and there are cars parked along the side of the street in the right side of the image.
