DOGS in LAW

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

DOGS IN LAW


The Foo Dog or Buddhist Lion dog was an imaginary 'keeper of the Jewel of Law', usually portrayed in porcelain or wood with a ball under one foot. It has a lion's mane, shaggy tail, and a head like a Pekingese.

9th century Dog Laws
Alfred the Great 'taught even falconers and dogkeepers their business and made laws specifying compensation if bitten by a dog. Welsh laws of the same period mention three kinds of cur (Mastiff, House and Shepherd's).

10th Century Dog Laws
A king's buck hound or covert-hound was valued at one pound and a greyhound at six score pence. In 1080 a greyhound was worth half a buck hound.

11th century Dog Laws
No mean person may keep grey hounds. Before the time of Magna Carta, the punishment for destroying a grey hound was the same as that for murdering a man.

The forest laws of Henry II
Only the privileged few could keep grey hounds or spaniels in the royal forests. Farmers and substantial free holders could keep mastiffs for the defense  of their homes, but only if the dogs were disabled so that could not chase and seize deers.

Shogun Tsunayushi
The Dog Shogun  of the late 17th century passed a law that all dogs must be addressed politely and treated kindly. He ended up caring for a hundred thousand dogs himself at the cost of the exchequer. The resulting inflation brought about the introduction of an unpopular tax levied on farmers.

Clothes Dogs

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


COMFORTER :

Small spaniels were used to cure human disorders; 'comforters' were pressed against the afflicted part, keeping it warm and sometimes effecting a cure simply because the patient believed it was possible.


DOG FUR :

Dog fur is generally thought much too inferior to be worn, except perhaps as a travel rug. But samoyed skins were worn as clothing by 18th century Siberians, and the coat clippings of Tibetan terriers used to be mixed with yak hair and woven into a soft, semi- waterproof cloth. Wool from poodles, Old English sheep dogs etc is sometimes spun and knitted by enthusiasts.

GLOVE/POCKET BEAGLE :

A very small dog from the Elizabethan times up to the 19th century, said to be small enough to be carried in a lady's glove, but in fact applied to any beagle under 10 inches high.

MUFF DOG :

Toy terrier small enough to slip into a muff and keep its owner's hands warm.

POWDER PUFF :

In hairless breeds, the occasional pup which is born with normal hair and teeth.


PYJAMA DOG :

Afghan hounds have been called 'greyhounds in pyjama'.


SLEEVE DOG :

Japanese spaniels and Chinese temple dogs carried in the loose sleeves of oriental gowns.


WATER-RUGS :

Shakespeare's description of the dog he used for hunting waterfowl on the Avon, probably an English water spaniel.

DOGGIE SUPERSTITIONS

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


SUPERSTITIONS


HOWLING :

It is a widespread superstition that a dog howls when there is a death. To quote Longfellow:

In the rabbinical book it saith:
 The dog howls when with icy breath,
Great Sammael, the angel of death,
Takes thro' the town his flight.

MANDRAKES:

In medieval bestiary, the only way to capture a mandrake root ( to which all sorts of magical powers were attributed) was by using a wolfhound to tear it from the earth.

OMENS :

An ancient Kaffir superstition was that bad luck should be expected if a dog leaped on to the roof of a hut. The Damara of south west Africa dreaded meeting a dog with one foot like that of an ostrich- a sign of impending death.

DOCKING :

Two thousand years ago docking a dog's tail was thought to prevent madness. The practice was encouraged in more recent times by taxation ( A bob tailed dog was a working dog)

DISCORD :

The Greeks thought that if a stone which had been bitten by a dog was dropped into wine, those who drank it would fall out amongst themselves.

My GUIDE, AND MINE OWN FAMILIAR FRIEND

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs





GUIDE DOGS 










During world war I a German doctor noticed that a German Shepherd was very caring towards a blind patient, and he began experimental training to see if dogs could be used as guides for the blind.  Mrs. Dorothy Harrison, a wealthy American who bred Alsatians, saw the German training centre and wrote about it. Morris Frank , a blind American was inspired by her article and contacted Mrs. Harrison, who then set up L'Oeil Qui Voit in Vevey, Switzerland(1928) and also established the first guide dog school in USA. Morris Frank was the first guide dog owner in America, with his famous BUDDY.


In England, Mrs. Muriel Crooke, a dog breeder and trainer in Liverpool, and Mrs. Rosamund Bond, a breeder and exhibitor of Alsatians, met Mrs. Harrison and then began their own training classes at Wallasey. The classes eventually led to the formation of the GUIDE DOGS FOR BLIND ASSOCIATION in England.


BREEDS GENERALLY PREFERRED AS GUIDES FOR THE BLIND:


1.Labrador Retrievers
2.Golden Retrievers
3.German Shepherds
4.Collie
5.Dalmatian
