Featured Creature: Dog

NOTE: These stats have been edited to conform to the rules revisions posted on 9/8/15.
Dogs are the cleverest and most versatile of the animals, at least to hear them tell it.  They tamed humans and have shepherded civilization for thousands of years, all while fooling the longpaws (their name for humans) into thinking it was their idea the whole time.  As the species with the most intimate experience with human ways, and the greatest exposure to human knowledge, dogs are indeed highly flexible beasts.
