- Jul 20, 2011I just don't see such a sharp divide... keeping company is a job of sorts.
Also I have my dog so I'm forced to go on walks, and think I'm not alone in
this. Many people also like their dogs warning of any intruders, even if
it's the high-pitched yip of a tiny dog that will never scare away an
average human. Also... in medieval times people kept menageries of exotic
animals. Keeping leopards and what-have-you can't be so different from
keeping parrots or iguanas. You keep them because they appeal to you. Then
if they're also useful, so much the better.
I've rescued the quote so you can judge for yourselves. My impresssion is
that he's just adding a function to the dogs, kind of like drinkiing tea and
then finding out it's full of antioxidants or whatever...
"As touching the pretty little dogs that our dainty dames make so much of,
called Melitaet in Latin, if they be ever and anon kept close unto the
stomach, they ease the pain thereof."
As to the dog collar I need to find the photos... :/ or find the collar and
take new ones...
