    Darrin,

    Sometimes a hand signal, sometimes not. Pourquoi? And not much visual evidence of praise either; or does she just get a bang out of Wagner? :D For a dog with Hope's piston The Ride of the...

    Mike,

    I didn't watch the game so I'm just grateful for the points. Best of luck with the Baggies, I hope (and believe) you'll dodge the drop.
