New Home Is Where The Internet Is! Tumblr’s 10-page limit is keeping me from posting the whole thing, so head on over to the webcomic to read the rest (plus a blog post with Paris photos and doodles).
I’m going to Strasbourg tomorrow!!! I’m so excited. We might take a day trip into Germany and the Black Forest 8-D AHHHHHH. Back soon, love and hugs~
-Your friend Tally
Tally is not only an AMAZING comic artist but she’s living the dream! I hope my girls grow up and don’t let the constant yet abstract notion of fear dictate how they live in this world. Way to go Tally!! :D
I love this so much! As someone who’s only really started to travel in the last year, I totally get that initial terror. I’ve been pretty fortunate, and made so many friends all over the world. I went to Boston on a whim this weekend and got to spend an evening with comic people I met mostly through twitter - and everyone was wonderful. Yes, I got terrible food poisoning on the way home, but I also got to have barbecue and Manhattans with people who used to be strangers. Travel! It’s good for you.

Dogs in Irish Myth are always supernatural probably showing the status they had in society in the medieval.
There are 3 major dogs in Irish mythology and the trickster Bricriu has heros fighting each other all over Ireland to over possession of one of them. Fionn mac cumhail has 2 famous hunting dogs Bran and Sceoling. His close relationship with the dogs is explained by them being his shapeshifted Brothers.
Heros in Irish myth take their names from wolves and dogs. In an explanation of that tradition Cu Chulainn Irelands most famous hero in stories gets his name from acting like a dog for a smith as a child.
Its not just huge hunting dogs that were valued either. Lapdogs were a huge commodity in medieval Ireland. The Goddess Boann has an immortal lapdog named Dabilla. The first lapdog in Ireland Mug Eime caused such jealousy he had to be passed among the kings of provinces to avoid wars.
I have to say I share the medieval obsession with dogs. Its a sad thing that wolfhounds are so big today their hearts cant take the strain and they die young. The breed standard exists based on the Iron Age roman account of Irish wolf hounds. So huge they terrified people in the Colosseum.
Ireland was famous for dogs before we had the written word.
Bricriu of the Poisoned Tongue is always a fun character in the old stories!
