With the eagerness of waiting depicted in this dog themed chess set, an excellent
title would be "Away to the races!" As they are all dogs, with no fun
cats to chase, the goal must be a friendly checkmate, most likely in a romp and
tumble struggle that only dogs know how to manage. In the silence before the handshake,
the breathing is almost audible from these patiently waiting dogs as the only
thing that appears to be missing is the ball for them to chase!
The German Shepherd is the guiding king for both sides, with ample back-up
from Dalmatians as bishops, and Terriers in the front lines. The stoic castle
is none other than a bulldog--what could be more fitting? A prime addition to
any room, or even a great change and plenty of talk, the chess club!
