A preparatory drawing for a published work or periodical such as The Illustrated London News or The Sketch for whom Aldin illustrated.
This West Highland Terrier in light-hearted humorous pose was clearly modelled / inspired by Aldin's Terrier neighbour, "Slickerson", when the artist was living in Reading. Aldin famously remarked that "Slickerson" spent most of his upright and begging by the front door until he was let in.
