    Actually, Coolidge produced multiple paintings of dogs playing poker. The one you're probably thinking of is called "A Friend in Need" and shows a sneaky pit bull passing an ace to his buddy. Over the years, the paintings became surprisingly popular and have led to many imitators, as well as paintings of dogs playing various sports and games. Who knew?
