Pensive pooches and Noble beasts
If one looks at the pic of the 3 dogs below, one will reach the conclusion that the dog in the middle is a wizened old sage. The left dog is a watcher. . .a gazer. One pictures him staring at the stars or perhaps working on the deck of a 17th-century Spanish galleon looking out for the mysterious Kraken. He has a warrior's spirit. The right-most dog is a noble creature as well. But he's not from the same land as the other 2. He may be Canadian. Notice this: he's looking to the side, which makes him a guarder of walls. . .a night watchman. . .with excellent hearing. He's probably just a tad more emotional as well. The middle dog. . .the sage-like beast. . .has emperors blood in his veins. His droopy cheeks tell of long memories about forgotten kingdoms and lands long unremembered by those of lesser lineage.
