  1. This also begs the question, what breed of each type of pet best represents each character/actor in fandom? Would Picard be a “great Pyrenees” ? Would Elrond be a “great Dane”? Would Loixana Troi be a Himilayan cat? And what do we choose for the Doctor since we have numerous actors to try to match up with the right visual and pet personality?

    Anyone care to do a fun mock-up for the next Comic-Con?
