Forgot to tell you guys I’m away from home right now. ouo;;;
On vacation in Western PA, crashing at SkinnedWulf's place. Got Zen to the PA show, picked up Rogue's pelt and also got Ivor and met some dA folks.
Probably will go into details when I get home Sunday. Meantime I’ll pop in here when I can.
I’ve found where I truly belong
remembering some stupid shit you did years ago
Having your weeaboo self pop up
They’ll have to choose to press it or not press it.
I think he’s got the wrong book, but he’ll enjoy it anyway.
I like how cute and simplified Lyra is next to that Feraligatr and background
I am loving this image because it sparks that feeling of expanse and mystery that I mentioned. A lot of the art from the pokemon trading cards also gives me that feeling. Perhaps it has something to do with the environments in these images being sort of murky, foggy, and largely left to the imagination. The Pokemon seem animalistic and instinctual and the trainers look so small and vulnerable. It’s the feeling of being unafraid to explore these dangerous places and command these dangerous creatures. Pokémon is such a great escapist fantasy.
Not sure if you’re knowledgeable on coydogs. If not that’s fine. I found this thread with some pictures of a coydog. I’m not even sure if it’s alive or not considering that it’s on a taxidermy forum lol, but I was curious. Claimed to be an F1 coyote/collie cross. No idea how he knows unless it is/was a pet or a guess. Does this look like a coydog to you?
Definitely a coydog. You can tell it’s not “quite” a coyote, but it’s definitely not a dog. It’s dead, by the way. I would assume it was killed in the countryside, where Collies are often used as herding dogs. (Plus, if you look at the coat, it’s very long-haired - Collie is a very reasonable guess). Most people find coyotes and coydogs to be pests, so no, it wasn’t a pet.
(Note that “wild” coydogs are a lot more common than “wild” wolfdogs).
That’s one of Bob’s coyotes. And I’m going to disagree with non-wolfdogs about this ID. This is a plain old coyote, but with a congenital condition known as hypertrichosis. Here is a pelt from a purebred coyote that had the same condition. Compare the two and you’ll see that they’re nearly identical.
I can second that. I bought three pelts much like the coyote in the OP’s image.
One one far on the left is questionable since he’s nearly the size of a wolf pelt, 70 inches nose to tail which is an extreme with coyotes. Here’s some photos of them I got from the trapper.
But you are in luck! I have tons of picture of coydogs I’ve collected over the years!
Photos below, warning, some are graphic and a lot of them are dead animals.
Feel free to correct me if none of these are coydogs.
