Terrierman, the Pin Up

The geometry in this picture is pretty amazing, especially the vertical line running up from the wall straight up the side of the dog, and between the man and dog. Then we have the stacked double Xs of the crossed ankles and the bunched cloth at the crotch, and the perfectly aligned rake of the head and the coat lapel. The dog's happy but sagacious expression is the cherry on top.

This makes me think of tosher Long Arm Tom and his dog, Lady, from Clare Clarks novel, The Great Stink. Of course I'm a rat catcher at heart.
