      I agree. Pictorially, it looks like "pets" started showing up with their ladies
      in late period paintings....lap dogs for the most part. Our local group has
      course hounds, and their are a few late period ladies that have their tiny
      pooches carried in the hand. One person has brought her working dog to carry
      water for the heavy suit fighters. Whether work dog, hunting hounds, or little
      pet, dogs are part of the Society tradition.

      I would argue that one of the reasons that there appears mostly hunting
      collars is that few if any dogs in the middle ages were just "pets". Nearly
      all persons and animals in the working households had to have some manner in
      which to "earn their keep" and therefore it would have seemed unseemly for a
      dog to just lay about and not be doing any of the work. Most dogs either
      were some sort of hunter or some sort of herder.
