Have you stored a file in Google colab, hardcoded its path, but can’t access it there from a local process?

Does the path have correct back slashes if on Windows, i.e. in a raw string or escaped?

Before I can explain why the file isn’t found, I need to understand why you expect it to be found.

What steps did you take to create the file(s) and put it (them) in place?

How was the files value created, and why does it have this path in it?

Does the path, PetImages\Dog\9519.jpg, look like what you expect? (In particular: do you understand what a relative path is, and what an absolute path is? Which kind of path do you think this one is? Is that what you expected to happen?)
