    NSIME - must be the same story I saw.

    And re that dog with the loooong name. By any chance was he a purebred, pedigree show dog? They seem to name those dogs with long names. I guess it has something to do with their sires.
    Well, fact of the matter was the dog was a 2 year old scruffy mutt who adopted this person, and they felt he should have a very important, impressive name so he could walk proudly among other dogs knowing he was just as good as,if not better than, any high-falutin' purebred. But they called him "Ed" because he was modest, noble, and "a real 'normal' good guy."
