As I mentioned in my previous post, my partner Joy is very much a dog person. In her life she’s owned several pure-bred huskies, and we occasionally talk about getting a husky puppy when I retire in a few years, though there are all sorts of pros and cons there.

Joy is not much of a wargames person, but she does appreciate a crossover angle, like my friend Jame’s goblin wolf riders in my last post.
I don’t remember how, but I came across a crazy Kickstarter project called Dungeons and Doggies. The idea is that various breeds of dogs decide to become D&D characters and set off, appropriately acquired, for the local dungeon. How that is any more ridiculous than, say, a giant floating eyeball?
How do they draw their swords? They don’t have thumbs!!!!?????
The KS project does include a paladin husky dog wearing armour, which painted would make a lovely gift for herself. Lord knows what I’ll do with the rest of them, but I know enough doglovers that individual figures will make nice gifts. I am a bit leery of Kickstarter projects generally, but this one is fully funded and then some, so hopefully it will deliver.
Blessings to your doggos!
