My wife took our basset...

...hound, Stewart, in for a routine check-up yesterday. Among the many questions the veterinarian (who has a really bad toupee, by the way) asked her was, "Does he like to stick his head out the window when you drive?"

"Yes," my wife replied. "Doesn't every dog?"

"Then make sure he wears goggles," the vet instructed her.

Goggles?, my wife thought. Where on earth am I going to get those? And how will I keep them on him?

So if you see a silver-ish Jeep Wrangler driving around the northern suburbs with a basset hound leaning out the window -- with goggles on -- that would be my wife and dog.
