Whilst the CGI published bestiary article on ‘Dogs’ was extensive, there were in our opinion, two glaring omissions. These are the greyhound and the bulldog, both popular breeds of the medieval period. Presented here are pages 11 & 12 which will add to the ‘Dogs’ bestiary article. Firstly we present the Greyhound, a fast and agile courser, emblematic of nobility. Second there is the Harnic Bulldog, the ‘gamey’ baiting dog seen at fairs and festivals throughout Harn, where their masters set them upon bulls and bears in the bloody spectacle of the baiting ring.
