Dave Barry had some screamingly funny pieces about dogs like that:

These are indeed exciting times we live in, what with the radical political changes in Eastern Europe, the dramatic developments in South Africa and, of course, the long-overdue Illinois Owl Vomit Study. This was alertly brought to my attention by reader Paul Baker, who sent an article from The Wisconsin State Journal headlined LAWMAKERS CHOKE ON OWL VOMIT STUDY. It seems that some Illinois legislators are upset because the state is funding a $180,000 study wherein researchers go around collecting owl vomit to see what they (the owls) eat, which could have important implications.

''Owls spit up pellets of hair, bone and teeth . . . at least once or twice a day,'' the article states.

This is also true of our small auxiliary dog, Zippy. His hobby is throwing up lizard parts when we`re trying to eat dinner. He`ll get that look of total concentration that dogs get when they have a really important task to perform, then he`ll hunch his body over and walk around in a circle making a noise that sounds like ''hornk.'' If you put him outside, he`ll sit patiently by the door until you let him back inside, then he`ll resume hornking. ''Never throw up your lizard parts outside'' is Rule No. 1 of the Dog Code of Ethics.

So, as you can imagine, our dinners have a very appetizing ambience:

MY WIFE: Would you like some more stew?

ME: Sure, I`d love-

ZIPPY: Hornk.

ME: On second thought-


MY SON: Look! A tail and a leg!

ME: I think I`ll just lie down.

LOL! Dang, woke up my husband laughing out loud at this! Up early and see that Q was way busy overnight.
