        It would also help if the COH would use a little common sense at
times, take a look at this months returns listed in the Blackstar.  For the
first return the blazon describes the wyvern as azure, but the person drew
it with two colors, which could not be described heraldically.  To me this
would be a case of artistic license, to them it is a return.  Instead of
registering it as the blazon describes, they returned it, which means that
he will now have to wait another 6-8 months:-(
        I will not even think about the difference between a standing dog,
and a wolf looking at a bird on its back.

And I'm not too pleased with Heralds right now, although I do like the ones
I know (please put down the sword Keif:-)
