Sometimes a missing "s" at the end of a word makes all the difference. But then if it had been there, I wouldn't have enjoyed the following paragraph so much!
I quote this excerpt from a local news article. (Amusing bit highlighted for your edification.) -

The Chelsea Flower Show has opened to the public amid tight security. For weeks in advance, police have been patrolling the area. The underground drains have been checked for the possibility of explosive devices, and explosive sniffer dogs are on duty at the show.

Somehow I find myself thinking of poor little dachshunds. (a.k.a. Gary Larson's "Wiener dogs")

And now a word from Animbus. "Personal comments should not be taken internally."
