Domestic dogs and cats appear frequently in Traylor's drawings, and often—like the people—they are in conflict. The relationships between people and dogs clearly amused Traylor (he sometimes showed men walking dogs much larger than themselves), and the quarreling animals here can perhaps be compared to the contentious human couples seen in many other drawings.
