Because even a dog sleeping in one’s place on the bed can be a source of distraction, here is another one for my “out there” category. This painting was inspired by a sleeping dog, and, a post on another blog (see Carl Feagan’s “Man’s Best Friends: Part 1–The Dog” at Anthropology.net). The words below are extracted from Carl Feagan’s illuminating piece.

Thanks for noticing that small piece I did for Kamiz at Anthropology.net. That’s turned out to be one of my most popular blog articles and I firmly believe that there’s much more to say about man’s relationships with canines and other animals such as equines and felines.
I’ve been working out a follow-up on horses as another of man’s best friends.
Oh.. I almost forgot: Great painting! I love it!
Thanks very much to you Carl, it’s great how you managed to compress and translate an awful lot of information and present it in a way that I am sure inspired many different thoughts among your readers, that’s quite an artistic in itself.
