dream.20170711: bread dog contest

by Rob Friesel

A friend (J.P.) and his son (O.) are pulling a bread dough out of a machine and shaping it. Periodically, one of them will duck over to an enormous, wood-fired, brick oven and stoke it. When you inquire about what they were doing, J.P. explains that he spent the last year on a sabbatical, learning advanced bread (and pasta) making techniques. When you press him further, he explains that he was inspired when he learned about an annual contest wherein entrants bake elaborate, lifelike (and often life-size) dogs. He is convinced that this year he will win. He will bake and enter a life-size Irish wolfhound, complete with spaghetti dangling as fur from the bread.
