Yes, another Dog #tessellation (taking a break from pentagons)

Dog Tessellation

There are three of them living under this ruff. They own the place. Yahoos when they are not gate guardians. Named this one Bibi, possibly for bierbelly. It is based in symmetry group P3 and the pentagons of Type 3, a hexagon split three ways. It’s a stretch from its original lines, but that is indeed where I started. Quite a simple tessellation with only a few lines. And a favourite tail twirl around a three-way rotation point – I’ve done that one quite a few times. The three rotation points are at its tail, the top of its head and its left paw. Three lines only, joining these three rotation points are all that accomplish this nested shape.
