The mystery of the big dog

It’s probably not a mystery to anyone who knows anything about dogs, but it is to me.

So – for reasons that will become apparent when you read my chapter on the composer Lili Boulanger – I’d love to know the breed of the dog in the picture below. Just click on it to enlarge.

Fachoun the dog

I’d been reading about femme fragile Lili Boulanger’s attachment to her dogs, and imagined her owning some little lap dog. Then I saw this picture. No lap dog this. Remember Lili herself is five foot nine in height…this looks like one big dog!
