Animals: Cat and Dog Jokers

Here is the  feline and canine jokers, the cats and dogs. They tend to be cute as a button but not that traditional as jokers go.  March 2019: there are 80 in this sections. 39 cats and 41 dogs.

(There were about 45 of these jokers in Sept 2017. Jan 2018 update: there are at least 58 cat and dog jokers ).

This first joker is from a deck called Wild! by Peter Woods published by out of the UK (I think).  It is part of a transformation deck so I think the suits are all embedded in the design. For instance, I see a space on the top of the lion's nose.  I think there are three more jokers from that deck and somehow, they seem to have gotten separated in the re-organizing of my deck.  This violates one of my principles that all pairs or trios of jokers should be kept together.  I'll get on it. In the meantime, this lion is in the cat and dogs section.

There's some significance to Schrödinger's cat which is the subject of the next joker. I think I'll check in on Wikikpedia.  " Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment, sometimes described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935. Can the cat be simultaneously both alive and dead? It's an analogy for a state known as a quantum superposition..." OK, I'm done. But here's the joker in the cat section since i don't have a philosophy or Austrian section.

And now onto the dog section....

And here is the dachshund deck. I'm showing the jokers, the back, and the ace of spades. Each card has a unique design with the docs so there are 14 designs total (13 cards plus the joker) with only changes in the color of the background.

And for those who must buy this deck: 

Hi, it's 7/29/2018 and I thought I'd update the dog inventory to show that I now have 22 dog jokers instead of the 16 dog jokers that I was showing on 9/17 (note the big caveat about cat and dog cartoon character jokers at the bottom).  

Lastly, I have mostly kept the cartoon animals out of the dog section. So for instance, the Snoopy, Pluto, Goofy, and Scooby Doo jokers from the cartoon character joker section are not counted or organized in the joker section. Nor is the Cat from Alice, Hello Kitty, or Cat Women jokers, they are in the cartoon character joker section , take a look!
