a dog in january: book of hours

courtesy of the british library. public domain
For the January page of a Book of Hours, a woman blows on her cold hands as she walks her dog in the snow, both of them heading for shelter, warmth and friends.  This dates from c. 1510-15, and was created in the southern Netherlands.  (British Museum, Egerton 1147, ff 1v-11v, 229-260)
