2012, Day 138 - Smaug

My sister Laura has always commented on the slightly prehistoric build of my greyhounds.  I see what she means at times, their anatomy is obvious and they have some of the same look of pack hunting dinosaurs about them, something I am sure is not an accident of evolution.

This morning Johan found a comfortable sunbeam at the top of the stairs so I took his picture.  The way he is resting his head and his long neck puts me in mind of Tolkien's description of Smaug as he rested on his hoard.  Fortunately Johan is much more cuddly and hasn't laid waste to a city in months.
