Bingo is DR's new dog. He's some sort of curbstone setter, otherwise know as a heinz 57. He's a stray that showed up one day and DR took him in.

He's one of the smartest dogs I've ever met. Case in point...

Bingo was a mite on the skinny side, so DR commenced to buying this el cheapo canned dog food to fatten him up because he seemed to like it better than dry dog food. I reckon if I was a dog, I would too, but anyway...

A couple of weeks ago, DR got Bingo a big can of chunky Alpo as a treat. And of course the dog loved it. The next day he was back to the el cheapo canned stuff. Bingo sniffed it, then sat back on his haunches and looked at DR as if to say "where's the good stuff?"

The next day, DR came home from work to find his garbage scattered all over the back yard.

And the empty Alpo can sitting in Bingo's food dish.
