Worth a Thousand Words: Sympathy

Briton Riviere, Sympathy, 1877
Via British Paintings. I may have featured this before (so many pictures, so many blog posts), but I just love the dog in this. As who would not?


  1. That dog is a slightly smaller mirror version of our yellow lab/golden retriever mix, Roxie. She is deeply sympathetic and loving, with the same expressive face. Got to send that to my husband and kids.

  2. Our love for dogs and their love for us is, to paraphrase something C. S. Lewis said, a hint of what the world might have been if not for the Fall.
