I've never seen this kind of dog before!

(Tannia Ambrye) #1

Some friends of the family back on Intaki Prime sent me this image. They say it’s of their dog getting a checkup, but I don’t recall ever seeing a dog quite like this before. Can anybody verify that this is actually a dog, what breed it is, and where they come from? I don’t even know if they’re native to Intaki Prime or not.

I believe that’s a breed of slaver hound popular amongst insufferably trend-conscious members of the Amarr nobility.

Amazing, the variation you can see in a species. Your traditional slaver is…much larger.

That’s a mutated rodent of some sort. Rule of thumb with dogs and hounds, if you can punt them, they’re actually vermin.

(Halcyon Ember) #5

I don’t know what it is but I should certainly like one.

(Ria Nieyli) #6

Cats are good.

(Halcyon Ember) #7

They are. I’m wondering if I should double my feline quota.

(Tannia Ambrye) #8

That is quite the variation indeed! As I understand it this “dog”, as they call it, is very small with a body mass of a little over two kilograms. From your image, that slaver probably masses close to a hundred?

(Tannia Ambrye) #9

Why would you kick it, Miz? Maybe it’s friendly?

(Mizhara Del'thul) #10

Didn’t say I would, just that I very much could, which means it’s neither a dog or a hound.

(Tannia Ambrye) #11

Hrm, okay. It seems a bit arbitrary though, this test.

(Quelza) #12

Likely. But the Amarr are no strangers to breeding programs, and they do love their pets (if the Ardishapur Decree is any indication).

((I’ve been going through some breed lists and not having much luck. Some tricolor Papillons look similar but nothing exact. Wonder if it’s a purebred at all.))

It’s a doggo!

I grew up with hounds of a straight Syrikos breed. I still keep them and, even after all these years, the boyhood connection refuses to fade. I understand that they are, obviously, seen differently by people but, from the viewpoint of a young boy growing up on his family’s estate, these precious creatures were the most loyal and most loving things around.

As an adult I know that’s from breeding and training but, still, it’s hard not to get a little sentimental with them. Even the tiny ones, they are so devoted and obedient. Actually, especially the tiny ones. They’re true rascals.

(Tannia Ambrye) #15

The Ardishapur Decree? I’ve heard of that. Something about someone losing a hand for killing a pet? Hopefully no one is stupid enough to take Miz’s, clearly tounge in cheek, test for dogginess seriously or there might be some people walking around with one less foot!

((Chihuahua-Papillion cross actually, and only one-quarter Papillon. Not bad for just looking at an image though.))

(Coulter Phelps) #16

What are they like? I’ve never eaten one before!

(Halcyon Ember) #17

I don’t have one. Also I’m certain I can find much better things for you to eat than a dog.

(Nana Skalski) #18

There are many breeds of miniature slavehounds. One of them even very fluffy:

(Halcyon Ember) #19

Stop, I don’t want to have to pay for a new clone simply due to an overload of cute.

(Aldrith Shutaq) #20

I find birds far more agreeable.
