a very little girl and her very little dog

thanks wikimedia commons (PD:100)
In 1610, some lost painter of the Frisian School painted this two year old in oils.  We don't know her name, though clearly her family was well enough off to have this done, and we know she resided in the coastal area of the Netherlands and Germany known as Friesia.  Based on how thin and pale she is, I think her dog has reason to stare at her from an anxious crouch.
