What Does History Taste Like?

A Doberman pinscher named Barney who was guarding a $900,000 collection of rare teddy bears at a children's museum in London went on a rampage Tuesday night, chewing up hundreds of dolls including one once owned by a young Elvis Presley. The Elvis bear is owned by English aristocrat Benjamin Slade, who purchased it at an Elvis memorabilia auction in Memphis and had loaned it to the museum. "I've spoken to the bear's owner," said Daniel Medley, general manager of the Wookey Hole Caves near Wells, England, "and he is not very pleased at all."

That must have been a fun call.

For cryin' out loud! Where do you get these items? Loved this one about the Doberman. My mantra: A good dog is a stuffed dog.
