  • "An extremely ancient Portuguese (dog) breed that bears the name of the village of Castro Laboreiro, where it is particularly popular... It has a unique bark that begins in a deep baritone and rises to a ringing tenor..." Choirs of these dogs were formed in the sixteenth century in Italy to serenade the Holy Father at his prayers. (not really)

    Simon & Schuster's Guide to Dogs continues unfazed by sarcasm: "It is a wonderful guardian of flocks and herds and is particularly ferocious against wolves."
