This gem hales from, one of my favorite sources of good nart.

The glossy eyes exuding a tearless state of sorrow and empty hope contrast the meticulously manicured mane and twice tied tail. The crystal crown and gilded name plate silently mock the fallen fate of an ugly dog / monkey.

Who's eyes look down to meet the gaze of the pitiful pup? Despite the sideways stare I feel the orbs boring into my soul as I contemplate the horrible humiliation suffered by the subject. Only a monster would attempt to beautify such an animal, but it took a saint to paint this image of intrepid depth and meaning.
