spaniel and terrier

Not a fancy title for this oil painting by Samuel Fulton (Scottish, 1855-1941), and none needed.  Fulton's work consists primarily of dog portraits in a brushy academic style that breathes subtle life into the image. Most seem to have this level of one on one (ahem, two on one here) immediacy, as though he took time to know each dog and put it at however much ease he could.
