IT’S NOT THEIR FIRST TIME!
The photographer has gotten the attention of both man and beast in this Civil War era cdv; the confident look on the man and dog suggests they have had their picture taken a few time before. Unfortunately, there is no information as to the sitter and pet, or the photographer.
It seems that getting the dog and the hat into the photo were of equal concern; all properly posed, and certainly attentive to the goings on of the artist.
Image quality is very good.
