Just change “texts” to “blog updates” and I’m sure this exchange has happened between us.
So like a brick to the head, I have me a not so subtle prompt to include Jager on this week’s Wordless Wednesday post.
Our original co-puppy raiser and Hunt Master of All He Sees, the awesome little Jagerhund certainly has earned the occasional spotlight.
To redeem myself, if only to toss my credibility right back with this next photo, we have our freaky little fellow in full Master of the Hunt gear.
Um, You say. What is that on his back?
Why, that would be an orc prepared for battle.
Because our fierce fellow is a Warg, of course. Oh c’mon, you know. A warg. From Lord of the Rings, remember?
Here, does this help?
Right? You can see it now, can’t you?
It’s ok, just nod your head yes. It’ll get me brownie points with the dog.
From the Wiki page
In a way they took the place of the more powerful Werewolves from earlier ages. Like so many foul creatures, the Warg may have first been bred in Angband by Morgoth, the result of mixing two animals to produce a true monster. Wargs were said by some to have been very intelligent predators; it is rumoured that they had a crude understanding of some orc words and their Black Speech. Wargs appear in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit in which they attack Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and the dwarves that are traveling to the Lonely Mountain (Erebor).
