Every Dog Has Its Day

Also known as The Boxer Rebellion.

This story from New Mexico makes you wonder if perhaps dogs are a little smarter than we give them credit for:
The author of a new state law that allows felony charges against owners of dangerous dogs was hospitalized over the weekend after his own dog attacked him.

Bob Schwartz, who also is Gov. Bill Richardson's crime adviser, ... was instrumental in getting a law passed during this year's regular legislative session that would allow felony charges to be filed against owners of dogs deemed dangerous or potentially dangerous and that seriously injure or kill another animal or person.

Now that's sweet revenge. Not only do you maim the guy, but you make sure that he will go to jail for your dirty work. Maybe next time he'll take that dog out when he needs to go, instead of waiting for the next commercial.

(Somewhat) RELATED ITEM: The movie industry has gone to the dogs. Houston Rockets owner Les Alexander released a new DVD, Doggy Daycare, which is aimed at a new target audience:
Filled with engaging sights and sounds, doggy daycare DVD is designed to keep your dog company when you can't. From comforting belly rubs and running along the beach, to "good dog" affirmations and lots of joyful play, it’s "must see TV" for your four-legged best friend.

Of course, if it had been a cat, the revenge would have been a little more subtle. After about three days of total indifference, he would have been awakened at two in the morning to the sound and oozy feel of cat barf. (Oh, the joys of pet ownership.)

Hey, I offered to shoot that cat years ago. (Of course, the mistake was in making the comment in front of the kids... they still haven't forgiven me that one!)
