Description
This comic little dog is making demands, but it is hard to take him seriously, in spite of his well- defined teeth. Perhaps he is merely asking to be fed--his plump, hollow body is designed to hold food. There is a temptation to toss him a table scrap and watch him catch it in mid-air. - (PF.0408)
