Fox "hound"

Just when we thought we'd "seen it all" in relation to what Poodles were "originally bred to do", a white Poodle (complete with pom-pom) leading a pack of hounds in hot pursuit of a fox, closely followed by a horse and rider in a red coat (England, ca 1670) burned across our retinas. This startling image belies fox-hounds-only "Fine Hunting Morning"-genre placemats and cookie-tins. For more information, see Silberechts, "...Visuals".
