Dog Mauls Bears! Teddy Bears, That Is...
On Tuesday night, at a tourist attraction called Wookey Hole Caves in western England, Barney, a Doberman pinscher guard dog, briefly went berserk, running amok among a collection of teddy bears, including a 1909 German Steiff bear called Mabel reputed to have belonged, once upon a time, to Elvis Presley. (...) Barney chewed, tore, ripped and otherwise savaged about 100 teddy bears before his handler, Greg West, was able to restrain him. (...)
Photographs of Barney in British newspapers on Thursday showed the Doberman with what might or might not be an expression of canine contrition, sitting on his haunches amid detritus of glass eyes, amber fur, stuffing and other ursine innards. On the other hand, the expression may just have been saying, “Oops!”

Everything must be packed up by next week Friday. Whee! Harrison is helping a lot by pulling off tape from the boxes. One little kitty might accidentally end up locked in one of those and kept on the truck for a week! *j/k*
