Because my out-of-town correspondents know to pitch me what I like, I can now present to you the following two items. Both are dog- and Colorado-related. First, proof that someone in Colorado has an affinity for dogs — and more of a sense of whimsy than I would expect from a state I associate with rocks, trees, altitude and other outdoorsy qualities.
Second, and perhaps more importantly, Coloradan dogs can shoot laser beams from their eyes, which would explain the curiously low cat population.
More as these stories develop.
