A Motivational Moment for Misguided Masters & Mutts

By Hugo Hotagen, DDD (Duke of Doorknobs & Doghouses), a loyal lapdog-in-training apprenticed to the affable, agnostic and all-round air-headed Court of the Quipping Queen.

Here is a piffling piece of pooch poetry in honor of the "Year of the Dog":

"Now lapdogs give themselves the rousing shake,
And sleepless lovers, just at twelve, awake:"

(Alexander Pope, 18th century British poet, from his celebrated work - The Rape of the Lock)
