This is a reminder that nothing changes. In the days when France had a salt tax (La Gabelle) which varied in different parts of the country, dogs were trained to carry bags of salt across the salt tax frontiers, bringing nice profits to their owners.I imagine a large dog running at speed at night would have been almost unstoppable, except if other dogs were used.
