a little dachshund

thanks wikimedia commons {PD:US}
Puppies: how is it they always seem to see into eternity when they're so little and new?  I always wonder.  Apparently the German painter Carl Reichert (1836-1918) felt the same when he painted this oil of a Junger Dackel (Young Dachshund) at some point in his later life.
