This puppy is sad because he is all alone. There is a lot of detail in his face. It reminds me of my dog Sadie.
Puppy Playing with a Pheasant Feather, Attributed to Yi Am, Korean, 1499 - 1566, 16th century, From the collection of: Philadelphia Museum of Art
This is a puppy that I feel is learning to hunt pheasant. It also seems to be playing more than learning. This seems like one of my dogs, Bacon, who enjoys playing with the birds. . . not hunting them.
Untitled [Two Dogs Fighting], Bill Traylor, 1939/1947, From the collection of: High Museum of Art
These dogs are fighting over something. They also could be playing. It looks like how my dogs Sadie and Tazer would fight when they first met.
