Norman Rockwell said whenever he had trouble making a painting work, he'd add a dog to it, "always a mongrel, you know, never one of the full bred puppies. And then I'd put a bandage on its foot... I liked it when I did it."   And Samuel Johnson claimed, "I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings they can show me in the world."
