two happy dogs for a lucky pocket

Dog with Loose Collar and Puppy is another sweet netsuke (remember our napping cat?).  Dating from Japan, early 19th century, this comic duo in ivory measures all of 1 9/16 x 1 3/8 x 3/4 in., which makes the detail all the more delightful to me.  I love the goofy face on the puppy as it grins from under that sheltering paw.

I love your phrasing about 'that sheltering paw'. Beautiful.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate

Also visit my blog; more

Hi anonymous commenter, I honestly don't know if anyone takes my content and reuses it. I doubt it since I don't get that much traffic. Really I believe the only thing you can do is put a copyright notice on your blog (whatever the copyright rules are where you are), and then contact anyone who seems to have used your stuff with a request to give you credit. You notice I am always very careful to tell my readers where I got information. Best of luck!
