Black-and-white image of a young boy and a Collie dog in a dark setting. The boy is facing the dog and holding its front paws up with his hands. The boy is wearing a cowboy hat, dark jeans, and boots. The ground is covered with dirt and straw, and there are several men in the background, in the left side of the image, who are wearing cowboy hats and smoking cigarettes.
