I think the stick the shepherd carries points directly at the dog's head, which can be seen in _front_ of the shepherd. The dog is slightly ahead of him and to the shepherd's left. Look for the shape of the nose. Not a sheep's nose.

Call me crazy, but isn't that a dog to the far left of the painting, directly behind the shepherd?

Another amazing painting! Coming here, I think I learn even more about art than I do about wool...

Beautiful - thank you for introducing me to works and artists that I might not see otherwise (even tho I am an art history student and have visited so many museums) This one is stunning. Thank you!

That is stunningly beautiful.

Chiaroscuro is one of my favorite elements in classical oils - nice!

I've missed your posts! Glad to have you back!

On the far left of the image, there seems to be a dog shape (the top of the dog's head is about level with the shepherd's bottom). Looks more dog than sheep, I think.

Although, to be honest, I don't think I would have even noticed it if you hadn't mentioned that there's always a dog.

ooh, that's lovely! Is there always a dog in Jacque's shepherd paintings?

I think that is an amazing picture. There's just enough detail to tell what's happening. And it's all lovely.
