is for Running Dog, also called a Vitruvian Scroll. A running dog is a continuous pattern like a wave or geometric layout usually adorning the flat surface of a frieze. Carved running dog patterns show up in endless variety on fireplace mantels, picture frames, architectural friezes, as well as furniture. If you have a picture of a stray running dog carving, send it to email@example.com and I’ll add it to this post. George R. Walker
