After reading Ran/Elio's explanation that the controversy in this chapter was regarding Alayne's new sexuality, plus w/o a certain character involved, I have been surprised there are not more posts in the fandom relating to Sandor. It has been noted that there is no sign of hound/dog references in this chapter, and that is certainly a departure from previous books.
To add to that, I found this interesting, regarding a previous Sansa dog/Hound reference.......'' I will dream a sweet dream, and when I wake there will be dogs barking, women gossiping beside the well, swords ringing in the yard.''
'' Outside the window she could hear the laughter of the washerwomen at the well, the din of steel on steel from the ward where the knights were at their drills. Good sounds.''
So not only is there no mention of Sandor/hounds/dogs, this seems to me another point of note. Sansa's sweet dream has been realised without the dog references.
I gotta say, I was a little disappointed with this. It was one of the things I was looking out for having missed it on first read, and have since posted with some people that helped me gain a greater understanding of that storyline. Any thoughts on the apparent lack of Sandor/dog/Hound quotes/references ?
Oh well, I still enjoyed the chapter immensely !
