Webbed feet ( weimaraners)

With today's business environment it is a good idea to stay ahead of the curve. People love their dogs. I do mine! Wouldn't someone in the 1700's do the same thing? I was hoping to get some more ideas of dog feet which could be inspired by period pieces. All ideas will be considered not just feet. I am sure everyone is thinking I'm kidding but.
Period joinery should always be used just modern aspects pertaining to relevant topics today.

Try to be as accurate as you can. Include the dewclaws.

Mike, Excellent reply. I saw this bed  and wondered why we don't have more Egyptian influences. I guess it was the period discovery of Pompeii and not as much the treasures in Egypt. Nice dewclaws. With todays unfoldings maybe we should take another look.  A great bed for catnaps.
