  • How Picasso is the last living dog in Sanctum? How did the dog get there in Sanctum, and how Picasso still exists as a last, living dog? I mean why the dog exists.

    • That a good question, I get confused too. Like, is the dog can be a prime? (It was a joke, I doubt it really lol.) maybe they killed all of other dogs. I don’t know. This questions is one of many questions that fans that attending to events like spacewalker, Unity event, etc... never ask thoses mysterious questions that I would have ask.

      Anyway, my own theory: only 1 dog allow, when a female give a breed to.. for example, 3 puppies, then they gets rid of rest of puppies including the mother, but keep 1.

      I doubt it. But I don’t think we would ever going to find out.

    • Yeah, I know, I also mean I don’t think we will find out. Because those animals are not that important in the show. But I think they takes some of dogs on the board at the first place. I don’t know,

    • I bet it was cloning, genetic engineering or the embryos.

    • Sure, makes sense that they could've brought frozen embryos of domestic species with them, along with seeds/spores/etc in case the new home needed terraforming. Since the intent was colonization instead of mining or prison labor, they could/should've had leeway to bring what they wanted.  Would think they might've brought more of a guard dog breed; though there's potential for dogs like Picasso to assist with retrieving what's hunted, I guess, or other service animal roles.

      I also wondered why he was the last; why wouldn't other Primes at least have dogs?  Maybe the dog embryos were stored with the human ones and got destroyed along with them. Or maybe it's just an "it's good to be King" situation and only Russell was allowed an exception; equality wasn't something that society valued.

      How were the dog embryos destroyed?

    • IDK, we just know Gabriel somehow destroyed the human embryos. Total speculation, but the dog embryos could have been stored in the same facility.  Only having one deep-freeze unit is likely more efficient than different ones for different species' embryos.

    • Why are you saying Picasso is the last dog? When did they say that Sanctum has no more dogs?

        Loading editor
    • They probably didn't say. I just blundered in here with a "best guess" based on the question, like an idiot lol.

    • Eugene said Picasso is the last dog in initial post and even edited the wiki page to say that - I'm confused on when this was confirmed as fact.

      When Russell mentions that Earth was destroyed and says, "I suppose I had hope for man's best friend", it is implied that Picasso is the last living dog alive. Is it true that Picasso was made from an embryo?

    • Meh, that's a big leap. He may have just hoped their survival would be more widespread in general or simply on his planet of origin. As in, maybe he'd had hope for them lasting on Earth as long as humans did (since he realized Clarke & friends hadn't interacted with dogs before).

      Could also mean Picasso is the last, but not necessarily.

      What do you mean not necessarily the last? I'm confused.

    • Russell could have meant he had hope (which was just extinguished by Clarke) for man's best friend's fate.... on Earth. Which would mean nothing about their presence, population, or prospects in Sanctum.   

      Just because we don't see any others on Alpha, doesn't mean that no others exist there.

      At least that's how I read it. Nothing definitive.

    • That's very speculative, Eugene. You are misinterpreting Russell's words.

    • Eugene, I agree with the others, Russell words are best interpreted to mean dogs on Earth. He said "I suppose I had hope for man's best friend" when talking to Clarke who'd come from the post-apocalypse Earth. It's a leap to interpret the statement to mean that Picasso is the last dog in the universe.
