Sorry- not about pets, but a good item in the news, from Toledo, Ohio:



What happened reminded me of the scene in Les Miserable when the bishop, presented with the convict by the police, does not behave as expected.



The link below should take you directly to that scene in one of the older versions of Les Miserable. (Otherwise you can manually skip ahead to timestamp 17:03.) I think there was an even better old movie version- each one is a little different- that I saw at some point, but I am not finding it among the clips on youtube.

(I did not embed the video, because it won't go directly to that scene when embedded, but the link can.)
