Isn't Didymus also a dog? How can he ride a dog?


Or is this another Goofy/Pluto kind of thing, a riddle that will plague humankind forever?

And is Didymus short of Epididymus? The thing that carries sperm in your ballsac? Ewwww.




I want the doctor to take your picture so I can look at you from inside as well.

Looked more like a Yorkshire terrier. Accent fits the breed.
But maybe foxes get grey hair too?

I thought he was a fox.

I thought he was a fox also!

I've always wondered this too. It seems so wrong.

It's spelled epididymis, and he was named after it because he carries sperm.

He's the dog version of a Black Slaver. Like Django's persona in Django Unchained.

I thought Ser Didymus was a rodent of some kind. 

When the regime of Dragons fell, the reign of Stags took over.

I was always sure he was a dog because of the way he barked.

That wasn't a bark, it's a traditional expression used by brave rodents when expressing excitement!

Different creatures from two realities. He thought of the dog as a horse and out of his mind.

What's the difference between a dog and a fox?

A bit late, and it likely has nothing to do with the movie, but Didymous means Twin. St. Thomas was also called Didymous. It has nothing to do with epydidymous.
