On July 20th, 2013 University of Florida linebacker Will Morrison was arrested for barking at a police dog in the back of a cruiser.  While this story has gone viral on the internet and hit the 24-hour radio talk show circuit with all the coverage of an NCAA title, the police dog, Bear, has remained silent.

Is this because he’s got something to hide?  Is he currently holed up with a PR team and a crisis management team?  Or is it because if he does he’ll end up getting zapped by a black box that’s firmly affixed to his throat?  I was determined to find out.

Bear:  Bark?  Barkbarkbark?  Barkbarkbarkbarkbark?  Bark.

Burnpoetry:  Well said, Bear.  Thoughtful.  Concise; hard-hitting.  Thank you for sitting with us.  You no longer need to “stay.”  Good luck in the future.

[…] That’s right.  Suck on that, every other weird sports year.  And we’re still in July.  Antonio Morrison got so drunk that he decided to star in an impromptu reading of his newest script: Dr. Doolittle 3: Doolittle Harder.  After the incident, I was able to secure interview rights with the police dog, Bear, and it was a hard-hitting, revelatory piece of journalism.
