The boy’s name is Steven, John, Bill Taylor and he is 6 or 7 years old. His dog’s name is Smartie and he is about a year old. He is either a springer spaniel or a golden retriever.
Steven is eating something; it looks like chocolate chip cookies in a jar. He is thinking “Uh oh. I hope Mom doesn’t come in”. His Mom’s name is Annie. He looks worried because he knows he has done something wrong. He is licking his fingers. He has an older brother or sister who might tell on him. Maybe they took the picture. There is a glass of something on the floor that looks like mud; it could be chocolate milk.
We think the picture was taken in the 30’s or 40’s because of the clothes the boy is wearing and the old looking lino floor. Steven is wearing overalls, knee highs and old shoes. He is in grade 1 or 2. He could be British because he is naughty and getting into stuff.
The dog is saying “I found you. Gotcha. And you’re eating and I’m not. Where’s my food?”
Maybe it is Saturday as the boy is at home and not at school. The dog is not really allowed in the house, but he is sniffing the food.
