Weird … I responded to this early this morning, but my response is not here. Shortly after I commented, I got a server error from WordPress when submitting another comment on a different post. Maybe WordPress just had the heebie-jeebies this morning.
It’s very weird because the comment appeared in my e-mail, and it’s now nowhere on this site!
For the record, you were the first to get it.
OH! OH! I know this one! :-D
Adolf Hitler is the artist. A lot of people don’t know that Adolf Hitler was a dog lover (of sorts). He was also an artist (of sorts), at least during his youth. He flunked entrance to art school but for awhile he sold watercolors and sketches. He appears to have been moderately talented & in fact several of his drawings of dogs exist. I think this one was intended to be a spaniel. There are some others of spaniels and hounds & a few decent GSDs. He was pretty good at drawing dogs, mediocre with watercolor landscapes, and pretty awful with portraits. 9:49 EST
