The Odd Couple...

Here's a painting by Otto Bache entitled "A Gordon Setter and a Pug". I can't think why anyone would paint such divergent dogs, in style, size, and purpose for breeding, in a study together but, here it is.
Bache lived from 1839 until 1927, and painted this in 1885. He did much canine artwork during his lifetime, but, what ever possessed him to put these two together, I'll never know...
