The dogs at Pompeii complete the architecture.

In walled cities during bad times, "wolves found their way inside the walls of the town and ate the dogs." Only the dogs have survived here. After a morning walk through the alleys, peering up at the few second story balconies, listening to lore about the Wolves, the whores of Pompeii, who called their clients with barks from the window, the dogs find their way to the open areas. Most open are the exhibition and catalog areas, which pile shelf upon shelf of stone and earthenware pots, miscellaneous furniiture, and frozen poses.
