A Puppy for Devereux

Kismet has suggested to many of her counseling clients [human and vampire] that they get a dog as a "therapy pet." The results have been overwhelmingly positive so far, and without even one bloodsucking mishap!

She's so enthusiastic about the project, she's decided to give Devereux a puppy to keep him company when she's working. The pup could have a little coffin of her/his own to sleep in [lid open, of course].

So, now the question is, what kind of puppy? Since people often talk about owners and dogs looking like each other, the hunt is on for a dog that resembles tall, lean, gorgeous, long-blond-haired Devereux. Which breed do you like best to become Dev's canine best friend? Please send me links to puppy photos and I'll post all the candidates here and pass them along to Kismet so she can choose.

But it's a secret, so nobody tell Devereux!

Golden retriever. Would totally be awesome for my favorite blonde vampire!

Ok, so they are not so much a "sleek and lean" breed. But, my vote, given Dev's European ancestry, would definitely be an Old English Mastiff. Where the two lack physical similarities, there is always symbolism. Hell, i have three of them and if i ever start to resemble one of them, i am starting at the bariatric surgeon's office and ending at the plastic surgeon's office. Devereaux is powerful, intimidating, but yet gentle and docile where Kismet is concerned and very loyal. He only uses his brute strength when it is necessary. This thoroughly describes the breed. They are gentle giants but are confident and protective. They were also used i hand to hand combat in the crusades. They were also used for lion and bear baiting by the Romans. They are a very strong breed pulling weights of up to 7700 lbs. The largest in history weighed in at 343 lbs and was over 8 feet long from nose to the base of his tail. If you can't find a good color, let me know and I will email you some pics of my pup. He is what they refer to as "silver fawn" which is an ash blond color with almost platinum highlights and black gradient faded accents on the head and paws that really set off the black mask.
