Good hunting dogs, your Standard Poodle. Photo from the Font of All Knowledge... The haircuts came from the fact that they'd have to go into the water to retrieve waterfowl.

We were all in the bookstore recently and she said aloud the name Nicholas Sparks, only I heard it as Necklace Farts. So yeah, Necklace Farts definitely made the list.

Get yourself a Red Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) and prepare to be very busy and very protected. They also love herding kids if you have any, and will keep them safe.

Ah, I think in the 15th century the English elite were still quite well aware of their Norman ancestry. And they probably would have added a "d" if they were referring to Norwegians.

Near this Spot
are deposited the Remains of one
who possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferosity,
and all the virtues of Man without his Vices.
This praise, which would be unmeaning Flattery
if inscribed over human Ashes,
is but a just tribute to the Memory of
Boatswain, a Dog
who was born in Newfoundland May 1803
and died at Newstead November 18th 1808.[4]
When some proud Son of Man returns to Earth,
Unknown to Glory but upheld by Birth,
The sculptor's art exhausts the pomp of woe,
And storied urns record who rests below.
When all is done, upon the Tomb is seen
Not what he was, but what he should have been.
But the poor Dog, in life the firmest friend,
The first to welcome, foremost to defend,
Whose honest heart is still his Masters own,
Who labours, fights, lives, breathes for him alone,
Unhonour'd falls, unnotic'd all his worth,
Deny'd in heaven the Soul he held on earth.
While man, vain insect! hopes to be forgiven,
And claims himself a sole exclusive heaven.

Oh man! thou feeble tenant of an hour,
Debas'd by slavery, or corrupt by power,
Who knows thee well, must quit thee with disgust,
Degraded mass of animated dust!
Thy love is lust, thy friendship all a cheat,
Thy tongue hypocrisy, thy heart deceit,
By nature vile, ennobled but by name,
Each kindred brute might bid thee blush for shame.
Ye! who behold perchance this simple urn,
Pass on, it honours none you wish to mourn.
To mark a friend's remains these stones arise;
I never knew but one - and here he lies.

Epitaph to a Dog
Lord Byron

/ I also had a dog named Bosun (slang for Boatswain), and fully understand the grief from which this poem came

The Exit Stencilist: ....

Epitaph to a Dog
Lord Byron

/ I also had a dog named Bosun (slang for Boatswain), and fully understand the grief from which this poem came


When our dog Papillon passed away at 14, old for a GSD, Mrs. Nuran adapted Byron's Epitaph for her:

She grew from a sweet, joyous puppy into a kind and gentle old lady. She loved us without reservation and scorned her bed to sleep in front of our door. She guarded our home faithfully into the last days of her life.

Everyone loved her. Vets who see hundreds of dogs a day commented how sweet she was. People who were afraid of dogs were charmed into petting and cuddling her. She had the gift of happiness.

I do not for pray for mercy, for she needs none. The Judge of all things pets her head and tells her she's a good dog, and she wags her tail and smiles.

"Near this Spot
are deposited the Remains of one
who possessed Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferosity,
and all the virtues of Man without his Vices.
This praise, which would be unmeaning Flattery
if inscribed over human Ashes,
is but a just tribute to the Memory of
PAPILLON, a DOG."

Eh, except it's England, and while the House of Normandy technically died out in 1154, the royal family at the time was still quite related to them, and it would possibly still be a bit much to refer to William the Conqueror's line in a derogatory manner.
