Unlike Tarot, Lenormand is a literal, not symbolic, cartomancy system. Sometimes a dog is just a dog, as shown in today’s daily draw:

My usual morning routine consists of asking my cards to show me something that will happen, or something I need to know. Today’s cards suggested some type of problem (Snake), possibly a publicity problem (Garden), that would have an effective resolution (Key + Sun). Key plus the base card Lilies suggested the solution (Key) would be long-lasting (Lilies). Since Dog often represents my son, I thought maybe he would have something to do with the effective resolution of the problem.
What Actually Happened:
Mid-morning or so, my son (Dog) poked his head into my computer room to tell me that a runaway dog (Snake + Dog = dog problem; problem involving a dog) had been captured in our back yard (Garden)! Apparently the dog had gotten loose somewhere in an adjacent neighborhood and a concerned citizen took it upon herself to follow the dog as it zig-zagged across streets and yards. She also called the police, who sent out someone from animal control.
Eventually, the dog, the woman and the animal control guy all wound up in my back yard, where the animal control guy (an older (Lilies) man), successfully apprehended the dog without further incident (Key + Sun).
