Remember how excited you used to get about getting a gift at Christmas when you were a little kid? Well, one of the things I admire about my dog Patton (and, yes, there’s more than one) is his enthusiasm. Give him a little $3 squeaky toy from Wal-Mart and he’s thrilled out of his mind — as you can see from this sequence of pics.

 Please, please, please, please, gimmie the toy!
