    Most of the cents can be considered "Dogs" so that takes care of that.

    I don't know how much you folks watch movies, but about a year or so ago, there was a movie named "Alpha". It's supposed to be about "cave men" in that time period, but it has a story line of how man and dogs came to be. Great story. The "time element" is probably wrong, but my grandchildren were quiet for a while which gave me some peace and quiet.

    Back on topic, I've already got some Canadian dogs on coins.

    I really like the coins that depict our sports figures, especially those of the NBA, and I froth at the mouth when I see the colorized coins! NOT! Keep them out of the coins!

    It's about time the U.S. Mint put a picture of themselves on a coin! They can sniff their own butts and call the team "Koin-Nine" or "K-Nine" for short!

    That's the impression I got; I've got a few close friends online of the same sort.

    Perhaps the US Mint will start a late-night TV show where they can barker their tinker toy coins. Some of their ideas are just childish.

    Oh, he was, he said as much. I don't get triggered by furries, but any kind of monomania can get tiresome after a while.

    Yeah, he had a one-track mind for that "dogs on coins" sorta thing, that would get old real quick. I wonder what his congressman's secretary thought about all that, I'm sure he was relentless.

    A little presumptuous I see. Have you seen those dogs birth certificates or passports? I mean maybe they're just dogs on Canadian coins ;)

    Good point. The series is called "Canada's Best Friends Silver Proof Set" but for all I know that Newfoundland is from Portugal :)

    Then you want Isle of Man 1 Crown coins. They do a different breed of cat each year. I think they are up to 28 different breeds now. I do have all of them so far. Naturally they started with the Manx cat
