Dogs are the magicians of the universe. ~Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Many Victorians held that there was a "moral superiority" in medieval architecture and the decorative arts. This was largely a Victorian reaction to the industrialization and a nostalgic longing for the pre-industrial and personal England.
These medieval dogs are not so given to over-intellectualizing. Medeival dogs herded, hunted, stood guard in castles, and accompanied the Vikings on their raids. A ninth century prayer invoked, "God, preserve us from the Northmen and their terrible dogs."
I currently have 24 medieval dog tiles, shown below.
