What is the Barking Dog?

The Barking Dog is one of Haring's most popular symbols. Check it out in Images. You can read more about it and Keith Haring below. They'll explain things better than I can!

Keith Haring’s dog motifs began to appear in his subway drawing series from 1980-1985. During this time, he would draw on matte black paper with white chalk, posting them over expired subway advertisements. Haring is known for wanting to create work that was accessible and enjoyable to as many as possible instead of the select few who could afford it, and his subway drawing paved the way for art accessibility. None of his works in his Subway Drawings are titled, ensuring that each person could create their own interpretation rather than having their view influenced subliminally by Haring’s intention.

Why is Barking Dog
I thought it would be cool to have a flatter, graffiti-style dog in the beautiful world of Stardew Valley.
I tried my best. If it doesn't look _aesthetic_ at least your dog will stand out! xD
