Even if unfinished there's still tremendous appeal in such a piece, the sketchy quality of line lends itself to more open-ended interpretation. Or maybe we shouldn't ever depend on a dog to sit still long enough for such a portrait... though there's something to be said for capturing the moment, for however long it lasts. Now enshrined in ink, the resultant documentation will speak for itself, long as there is someone who will look.
Do I, the observer, look at this and immediately shift into critique-mode, and analyze it in accordance with the criteria for the particular assignment? Or do I instead indulge in projection, think instead of the recent news that one of my own cats is actually sixteen years old instead of the immortal ten that I've been assuming for so many years now. The answer, if there ever really is one, is both. In this way the work of others will in turn inspire: the only question is, what will it do for you? *Note: don't ask the cat.
