The painting shows the dog lying close to a table tombstone. Bobby was said to have sheltered under the table tombstone close to the grave of his master. The artist may have included the Half Moon Battery in the background to indicate that the dog went for his dinner when the time gun fired. The whereabouts of the painting is unknown if it still survives.
