You won’t make every topic about you. Think of it like containing a virus: you can’t have it infecting everywhere.

"Pass" with two "S"'s? Strange pigs!

I think that's the question on everyone's mind.
Woof, woof, surely?
Really? Who says Bow-bow? I'm sure I've heard/read it somewhere.

Apparently, yes.

Who knew?
Well, dogs have been barking, bow-wowing, woof-woofing, how-howing, and vov-voving about it for weeks now but they're not very keen on MSM so it's only been filtering through to us by word of muzzle the last couple of days.
