Behind the puppy-dog eyes and slobbery tongues are cunning, strategic legal minds. The law firm Woofstein, Woofstein, & Bark have a very good success rate in the courtroom and their reputation warrents the cost of their services.

Imagine how different the end of A Few Good Men would have turned out if Col. Jessup had a Four Legged Advocate by his side.

Approach like this for rape cover

My wife called her “a Golden Retriever in German Shepherd’s clothing.” That sweetie never growled at anyone, not even our (then) 4-year-old son when he jumped off the bed and onto her back. (I would have bitten him.) But boy did she tell him off without resorting to growling.

Mighty brave behind that keyboard, aren’t you? You’d never say that to his happy face! He’d tear you apart…meh, who am I kidding. A golden retriever’s watch dog abilities have been described as: “Goldens like everybody. If someone breaks in your home, and your golden can figure out what they want, the dog is likely to carry it to the car for the burglar (and hop in for a free ride).”

An experienced Four Legged Advocate comes at a price. They can charge upwards of three packages of Beggin’ Strips an hour and very rarely do pro bone-o work. They don’t call ’em GOLDen Retrievers for nothin’!

Don’t make me throw at you rotten eggs
For kids on the stand
Allow them a helping hand
Of solace from those with four legs

But Felix “the Confessor” would break down under the pressure, even without being confronted.

No, I suspect Sly got trapped in someone else’s garage for a few days. And I haven’t been working in my drive or garage since Sunday.

@Doc, I don’t know about Spin’s advice….GSDs are notoriously tight lipped (especially when trying to conceal the cat hairs caught in their teeth.) I hope they didn’t chase Sly away. Cats are just as good at therapy as the pups are.
