Lorelei, the third Plague Dog

Although Lorelei was created many years ago, I've had a resurge in interest in Watership Down and The Plague Dogs. Thus, here is my TPD character Lorelei, drawn so many years ago but never forgotten. In my head-canon, she was the replacement for Rowf after he escaped the laboratory, thus enduring the same horrible experiment, being forced to swim in a tank of water to the point of exhaustion, sinking to the bottom before being taken out and resuscitated. When she too escaped, she eventually made her way to the countryside of the downs.

 

"Time And Tide" lyrics

I figured this was as good a place as any to put the lyrics to the ending song of the film, "The Plague Dogs." A much sadder film than Watership Down, this song has moved me to tears more than once.
 
 
I don't feel
No pain no more
I don't feel
No pain no more
I've left this cruel world behind
And I've found my peace of mind
I don't feel
No pain no more

Time and tide are flowing over me
I once was blind but now I see
The answer lies within your heart

Memories are only 'bout the past
The present time will never last
The future lies within your heart

I don't feel
No pain no more
I don't feel
No pain no more
I've left this cruel world behind
I found my peace of mind
I don't feel
No pain no more

Yes I know
I'm going home
Yes I know
I'm going home
When I reach the end
You know I've found a friend
Yes I know
I'm going home

I don't mind if the sun don't shine
Or if it's pouring down with rain
There will be a smile on my face
When I see you again
(I see you again)

Oh yes I know
(Yes I know)
I'm going home
(Going home)
Yes I know
(Yes I know)
I'm going home
(Going home)
When I reach the end
I know I've found a friend
Because I know
(Yes I know)
I'm going home

I don't care if the sun don't shine
Or if it's pouring down with rain
There will be a smile on my face
When I see you again

I don't feel
(I don't feel)
No pain no more
(Pain no more)
I don't feel
(I don't feel)
No pain no more
(Pain no more)
I've left this cruel world behind
And I've found my peace of mind
I don't feel
(I don't feel)
No pain no more

Time and tide are flowing over me
I once was blind but now I see
The answer lies within your heart
Memories are only about the past
The present time will never last
The future lies within your heart

(Time and tide are flowing over me)
Time and tide are flowing
(I once was blind but now I see)
(The answer lies within your heart)
The answer lies within your heart
(Memories are only about the past)
(The present time will never last)
The future lies within your heart
