I don't know what the artist was thinking here. Maybe he was just testing a theory that no matter what, if you put kids and a dog on a card it will sell. Even if there's been come kind of horrible snow storm that has covered all the houses up to their second stories and the two children are dragging the frightened puppy toward a chimney.

The dog knows what he's in for, and he's fighting. It's two against one, though, and the little devil children are going to win.
