The auburn leaves and tall, dried grass signify Fall and the end of fishing season. Shiloh, the Black Labrador Retriever, is sitting by the fishing pole and showing his desire to play by chewing on his master's shoelace. John A. Ruthven has given the print an almost lifelike quality, from the look on the puppy's face to the attention to detail in the fall scene surrounding Shiloh.
