W.C. FIELDS Vs. ALFRED HITCHCOCK....

K…this is my Gryphon, an English springer spaniel.

When my favorite aunt was introduced to him, she let out a huge laugh! I asked her what was so funny with our little guy.

She said, “Look—he has W.C. Fields on his back!” I said, “What are you talking about?”

She laughed again and got up and pointed it out. I said to her, “that’s not W.C. Fields, it Alfred Hitchcock!” We argued a bit and laughed a while.

Every time my aunt comes to visit—she can’t help but chuckle at the “Fields” on his back!

So here are pictures of the debatable silhouettes of Fields vs. Hitchcock. Would love to get your opinion….

I don't see either... :o I tried...but I failed.... :o :laughing:

There's a rubber duckey facing toward Gryphon's tail, though... :o

If it's any consolation, I routinely fail Rorschach tests, too. :crazy:

Gryphon looks like a handsome Dude, but it would be so much easier to tell if his face was showing *nudge nudge wink wink hint hint* :D

I don't understand the WC Fields reference :o :shrug:

But I think it looks like a bat flying towards his tail :lovestruck:

Either way Gryphon is a cutie pie & a face pic would be nice too :D;)

The bat was actually the first thing I saw/thought of :shrug: I was trying to figure out how it would look more like a bird & had no clue about WC :shrug: :D

K....I see the bat too!! How funny is that!! I'm going to have to show my aunt that one!!! Yes, it would be a side profile of Mr. Fields with a cigar in his mouth. Here's a couple of head shots of Gryphon.

This is what happens when you have a boy dog with teasing female humanbeings trying to pretend that he's a girly girl....

Okay Hazelrun...I figured out how to make pictures smaller so as soon as I can hog-tie Gryphon down to get more pictures of the bat, the bird, the duckie, W.C. Fields and maybe Mr. Hitchcock...I'll post them on this :wall:

Hi, (I'm new!)
This is fun. I see Whimpy (the hamburger guy) from Popeye. I also see her right ear and crown markings as the Wooly Mammoth from Ice Age, AND her left ear and markings as a silhouette of herself.
