Always assume your dog is loaded: A veterinarian in Arkansas successfully operated on a Belgian Malinois dog that had eaten 23 live rounds of .308 caliber ammunition.
We appreciate gun owners who secure their ammunition, but it does tend to slow things down when you have to follow your dog around the backyard to reload.
Bonus punch line: Not only will that dog retrieve, it’ll shoot its own ducks.
One more: Along with a dog license, that mutt is going to need a concealed carry permit.
Because Google Glass was such a hit: Microsoft might be regaining some of its cool high-tech cred, and some are pointing as proof to the development of the HoloLens, goggles that project virtual objects before the viewer’s eyes.

Consider yourself reminded: Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, and if you’re like most folks, you’ll get her flowers. More flowers are sold on Mother’s Day than are sold for Valentine’s Day, and florists are expecting record sales this year.
We’re considering a more practical gift for Mom, something to keep her safe, like a loaded dog, maybe a 12-gauge Basset hound.
