Default looks japanese to me

When browning moved the engraving from Leige Belgium to Japan in 1973 one of the things we noticed that the pheasants looked ok but the dogs and habitat looked a bit more different than we were used to . Japanese engravers are probably familiar with pheasants but the hunting dogs (like setters) had serious underbites with short jaws and the ear sets were wrong. Probably had never seen a setter. It was also common for their pointers to look like griffons or greyhounds and their squirrels to look like weasels.
