Go to their "Previous Pet Honorees" section, and check out the dog for
3/17/00. Here is what the owners said about their Shakespeare in Love
> Our dog is Khan. He is a seven and a half month old Chow.
> He is an extremely curious pup. Khan is very outgoing and
> enjoys meeting new people and going anywhere!
> He has the distinction of cornering an alligator in our
> back yard when he was three months old! The gator
> was 4 feet long and an obvious surprise to all of us except
> Khan or should we say, "Crocodile Khandee."
> Khan lives in Southeast Texas where he is the proud owner
> of Bill & Mary. Khan is very affectionate to us, and likes other
> dogs. We found that he enjoys watching TV, especially
> when we have a movie on with surround sound. He seemed
> to like "Shakespeare In Love" the best as he was attentive
> throughout the entire movie! He loves to ride in the convertible
> so his fur can blow!
Aren't you glad you stayed to the end?
