Salawa

The Salawa, thought to be similar to the Set Animal:

The sha is usually depicted as a slender dog, resembling a greyhound or a jackal, with three distinguishing features: a stiff tail, often forked at the end, which stands straight up or at an angle, whether the animal is sitting, standing, or walking; its ears, also held erect, are usually depicted as squarish or triangular, narrowest at the base and widest at the squarish tops; and a long nose, often with a slight downward curve. It is normally depicted as black, but may also have been reddish

n the 1960s, and again in the late 1990s and early 2000s, stories began to circulate about a mysterious canid, dubbed the salawa or sal'awa (scary wolf). The creature allegedly attacked several small villages in remote parts of southern Egypt, resulting in several injuries and even deaths. Eyewitness accounts and grainy photographs of a specimen allegedly killed by villagers resulted in speculation that the creature was the same as the “Typhonian animal”; a slender, black canine, rarely seen, but typically found on the edge of the desert.

When I first read this, I actually thought of a Saluki, a breed of dog fond in Egypt. They’re slender, fast, and graceful.

No Skype-y Tonight-y

To my friends who have been trying to get me on Skype: sorry guys, but I’m just really down in the dumps right now. I need to keep making myself draw happy pictures and listen to depressing instrumentals until I get back in shape. Besides, a sad Cherry on your Skype call is no fun at all.
