.".and you wanted to book a pampered pooch suite?"

"no, a bed & biscuit suite, actually."

*cringe*

and this is not even at the upscale upscale kennel, where dogs are referred to as "guests". no, this is the local boarding facility, and the "pampered pooch suite" actually looks very much like a space in a well-kept dog shelter. i wonder when they will introduce experience designers.

[pooch, by the way, is a rather recent addition to the english language, it was first used in 1924, according to the OED, and the meaning was "a dog, esp. a mongrel". its etymology is "obscure".]
