Here’s a fact: When your dog fixes you that steely gimlet stare when he’s having a crap on the living room carpet, he’s not thinking “What are you going to do about this, bud?”. he’s actually expecting you to look out for predators while he’s in a vulnerable condition.

And the answer – of course – is to go to the local paper, where they’ll photograph you holding your nose.
