Featured Breed: Newfoundland
This dog is pretty awesome. They're huge (it's big boned, okay?) and black, and they're considered to be the strongest breed of dog. They have partially webbed paws which make them good swimmers (or at least to the extent a dog can be considered good at swimming), and due to this and their strength they're legendarily know for rescuing people from the sea. Apparently there was one called Bilbo who was employed as a lifeguard in Cornwall. They're like the dolphins of the dog world.
Legendary seems like a good choice of words because they just have a quality about them, or at least from the pictures I've seen. It's something about the eyes. They look like they know something you don't. A wise look.
Here's a poem about one, because I ran out of stuff to say.
