The first dog I placed on a snowy platform was in order to correct a bad piece of composition. Since then abandoned dogs have threatened to take over my easel. This note appears on the back of the painting of Platform 5 onwards, and promises to appear on many more such is their popularity. Once the station numbers reach double figures, and stations grow unaccountably large, I will have to revert to Platform 1A etc. And remember: a dog is not just for Christmas.
