What dog?

Some time ago someone pointed out the dog’s tooth lichen to me and explained that the white pointy bits were similar to dog’s teeth. I’ve just read somewhere on the web that it’s the brown bits that resemble dog’s teeth. Neither look very much like the teeth inside our Collie’s mouth.

Back in the middle ages the lichen was used as a treatment for rabies – so they say.
