Missing Dog

There’s a breed of dog I’m trying to find the name of; they’re white and relatively short-haired, slim and medium build, with large pointed ears whose insides are reddish-pink and translucent; below is my attempt to draw one, though I draw even worse with a mouse than with a pen – I’ve made the head look like less like a dog than like a duck with rabbit ears, which is not exactly what I was going for.

The reason I ask is that in Welsh legend the Lord of the Dead hunts with a pack of dogs with “hair of shining white, and ears red,” and I’ve always wondered whether this might be the intended breed – but without knowing its history (i.e. whether this breed existed in early medieval Britain) I can’t tell whether that’s possible. So anyway, if you recognise the breed, please let me know. Thanks!

Watch Some Moore

WatchmenSome new Watchmen footage (well, partly new) is online. (Conical hat tip to AICN.) And it continues to look good; I just hope the State lets us watch it.

In the meantime, check out Alan Moore’s comments on the political subtext. (Though I have to take issue with Moore’s claim that no one before him had tried that kind of approach to the superhero mythos; surely Squadron Supreme and Dark Knight Returns, to name no others, can claim precedence.)
