Pug in a Boat

My bro-in-law shared with me this 1870 Victorian oil painting by James Tissot, entitled “Young Woman in a Boat.” Huddled in the back is a pug, a get-me-out-of-here expression on its mug, looking just as Pablo did the time  I took him on a boat ride. The only difference? Pablo wore a lifejacket.

  1. I remember Pablo in his life jacket. He looked adorable.

  2. This is the same picture as it is on Charlotte Brontë’s ‘Jane Eyre’ !!
    (I got a german version, and it has no hard back)
