I love the term "multi-purpose canine". It just triggers a ridiculous reaction in my brain. Like: can it drive a truck, does it sing well in german, does it support Wi-Fi, will it blend an iPad, does it have polyphonic ringtones?
My canine is multipurpose too! He excavates... the bushes, lubricates... the furniture with drool, disposes of sticks... on the carpet, and frequently exercises his ablative coating... all over the car seat.
