I read your question. However, I think the largest part of the problem is
your underexposure. A Delta 400 has only about 250 "real" ASA. An exposure
with 800 ASA gives a main exposure (Zone V) of only about 2 1/2 stops over
clear film, and this could very well be your problem. You are trying to
capure fine detail in a black dog, and you don't have much "flesh" in the
density curve to do this.

I would try this again, exposing the Delta 400 with 200 ASA and reducing
development about 20%.
