Description
This fierce growl on the face of this little dog seems to belie his charming plumpness and tiny size. Perhaps he is trying to discourage us from making a meal of him--as was commonly done in ancient Mexico. We should probably assure him that he is much too cute to eat, that we only want to pet him and make him our own. - (PF.0997)
