Where’s My backpack/Travel Theme: Short

As a comparative adjective it’s hard to show ‘short’ in size without its habitual collocation ‘tall’. [being mindful of ‘small’ and ‘big’]
Short is relatively smaller than tall and vice-versa. If showing length the collocation would be short and long. Minefield?

So here I show SHORT and tall plaster molded terriers with obvious relative size, not as dog to puppy but dog to dog.






I believe these finely modelled muts to be fairground prizes probably dating from 20’s/30’s but I can’t be certain; they perhaps should be more garish?

      As I say I’m not sure about the origins but they are light, simply made and decorated so were never made for money unless they were sold in vast quantities at affordable prices. I might be barking up the wrong tree…
