Puppy Enters Plea? Now That Would Be News!

My Friday post had a screenshot of that day's front page of the News-Press and its banner headline. But it took Facebook Friend Nels Henderson to point out the real gaffe on the page which was the headline over the story in the lower right hand column.

What was the puppy charged with?

Sounding off in a no barking zone?

Illegal dumping?

Digging without a permit?

Whatever it is, it's a doggone shame.

And no, I couldn't let a sleeping dog lie.

Perhaps it's time we all chipped in and bought the News-Press copy desk Eats, Shoots & Leaves, the book that reminds us of the importance of punctuation.

And those who want to make sure that the puppy has competent legal representation can make a contribution to the K-9 Defense Fund.
