Oh gosh, this made my eyes well up with tears – such devotion. Mind you, if the dog had broken its leg, the shepherd would have probably shot it!

Nothing wrong with sentimental art when it truly represents life. This painting really captures a pining dog, and speaks volumes about the relationship he enjoyed with his master.
