There is a Dominican church near where I live and they have some beautiful art. The stained glass windows have all 15 mysteries of the Rosary and they have a lovely sttue of Mary giving the Rosary to St. Dominic. They, of course, have a large portrait of St. Dominic and another statue of him as well.
And in everyone of these works art there is a dog.
Now I can understand if St. Dominic loved his dog. I am an animal lover too. But I think there must be more significance to it than that. Can someone help me?
