Napoleon's dogs in Animal Farm
  • - "Silent and terrified, the animals crept back into the barn. In a moment the dogs came bounding back...though not yet full-grown, they were huge dogs, and as fierce-looking as wolves. They kept close to Napoleon" (Orwell, 1946)
  • - "...the tale of confessions and executions went on, until there was a pile of corpses lying before Napoleon's feet and the air was heavy with the smell of blood, which had been unknown there since the expulsion of Jones" (Orwell, 1946)
  • - "He was running as only a pig can run, but the dogs were close on his heels" (Orwell, 1946)
  • - "It was noticed that [the dogs] wagged their tails to [Napoleon] in the same way as the other dogs has been used to do to Mr. Jones" (Orwell, 1946).
  • - "The dogs promptly tore their throats out..." (Orwell, 1946).
