Sorry, but no cigar or Norman Rockwell. Here is the original B/W photo dated 1922, along with another taken minutes before/after.

These are great shots......I wondered if they were not comments on the dog wanting a sip too.;)

I had both a horse and a Scottish Shetland (they are like mini draft horses, very stout build, bred to pull ore carts in mines) that liked beer.......a LOT. :)

Yeah, we don't know if the pooch is pilfering it or putting it back.

Did you do the colorizing?

No, the colorized version was done by a dog breeders group. They were discussing the Golden Retriever which wasn’t well established in North America until ~1920, & how the breed has changed to how we know it today. Much like the difference today in the American Labrador Retriever with its tall stance, short coat, delta shaped head & long snout vs the English Labrador Retriever with its shorter stance, longer curly coat & wide blocky head.

But I do have the WDC Wellington pipe in jumbo.
