It's Man's Best Friend. And A Great Big Dog Too!

The headline is from a Wizard of Id cartoon where Bung the Jester is caught in a blizzard, and is rescued by a keg of brandy. With a dog attached.

In real canine news, the monks at the 950-year-old hospice at St. Bernard Pass in Switzerland have put their remaining flock (herd? school?) of brandy toting St. Bernard dogs up for adoption. According to Rev. Frédéric Gaillard at the monastery, "Now there are helicopters....This is not the 1800's. This is not the 1900's." The dogs will still spend their summers at the pass where tourists can take their pictures.
