Weiner dog

This only confirms my choice for hypothetical pet of the future.

As at least three art historians allege, St. George never vanquished a dragon, as legend asserts. Over the centuries, after countless retellings, the story has been slightly embellished. Quoting from an ancient fifth-century scroll (and usually in unison), they maintain that George rode into the countryside that famous day to dispatch "an extremely long and mean little creature living near a well-traveled road in the north of England that caused great irritation to passersby, be they Angle or Saxon." And this so-called creature, these same historians theorize, was most assuredly a wiener dog. The subsequent discovery of this very old painting has only reinforced the views of these three experts, causing them to become insufferable dinner guests.

You know, I crushed a spider the other day, maybe I can qualify for sainthood too?
