That Doggone Richard III

Here's Shakespeare's Richard III as performed by cartoon dachshunds. (It'd be even better, my buddy Boswell thinks, if it were performed by cartoon cairn terriers, but beggars can't be choosers.) I suppose there should be a revisionist version of this too--perhaps Sharon Penman's The Sunne in Splendour performed by Jack Russell terriers?

What a cute idea she came up with to help her students understand the play.

Why Jack Russell terriers in particular?

Daphne, it was a good idea, wasn't it?

Carla, no good reason. Maybe I unconsciously linked "Jack Russell" to "John Howard" in my head. (They do sound sort of similar!) Thanks for the lion!
