It is late afternoon when we first lay eyes on the beast.
Something has caught its attention
and as it starts to make its way across the grassy plain
we realize what we are seeing and acknowledge just how lucky we are to encounter this elusive creature.
The beast is extremely rare, thought for some time to be folklore.
It was not until recent years that its existence was confirmed by field researchers
and it was officially given the name
Canis Lupus Rediculiaris
or as it is more commonly referred to,
It is believed that early ancestors of the Bassador were winged and had the ability to fly – over centuries, the wings migrated to the head and took root as large, wayward ears. Scientists are still working to explain the Bassador’s reluctance to reign in their ridiculous tongues.
Although occasionally wily, the Bassador’s temperament is generally friendly and accepting of humans.
The affection of a Bassador can easily be won
with a bone-shaped treat
and a calm and friendly pat. Let’s see the Bassador in action once more, shall we?
My, what a glorious creature.
