Carrot and Angua

There are a few references as well about the "royal succession". Angua and Carrot marry and then for whatever reason Carrot assumes the throne (I hope not, I love Vetinari and the concept of a Tyranny)...Angua is expected to produce an heir. Which is heir when the king fathers an entire litter of pups? (Obviously, the first born, but you get the point.) :wink:

They'd only be part-time pups though - :lol:

The genes will get further diluted so some of the children might even be incapable of transmogrifying into wolves, although there could be a full time wolf if the lycanthrope gene is a strong recessive... :wink:

Wasn't Angua's other brother a f/t sheepdog somewhere? :twisted:

He certainly was - and won prizes for it too. :lol:

Would any heir Angua produced be a hairy heir? :?

Yup, he won awards in Fourecks. In their litter, only Angua and Wolfgang were shapeshifting werewolves. The other two, Andrei and Elsa were yennorks - werewolves unable to change. When Wolfgang killed Elsa for her inferiority, Andrei ran away. :D

The von Uberwalds are quite a disfunctional family. I think the British Royal Family may be related to them. :lol:

Well according to Doctor Who Victoria was bitten by a Werewolf :wink:

I think you're right, it may be Borogravia. :)

Speciesist! For all we know, their behavior may be quite normal for the typical Uberwald werewolf clan.

:D

Yeah, that's what made me think Fourecks, but I wasn't totally sure on it.

I have Border Collies, so tend to pay a bit more attention when there's talk about herding. :D
