Murder Trial Calls Dog As Witness

A courtroom observing a French murder trial could be excused for thinking
the presiding judge has gone barking mad.

In what is believed to be a world first, the investigating magistrate has
invited a dog to take the stand as a witness.

Scooby will give evidence as he is believed to have been with his 59-year-old
owner when she was found hanging from the ceiling of her Paris flat.

Police believe the death was suicide, but her family cry murder - and the only
witness to see the alleged crime is on four legs.

It is hoped Scooby can collar the potential perpetrator, having already
played a leading role during a preliminary court hearing in Nanteree, a Paris
suburb.

He is said to have hounded a suspect, "barking furiously" after being taken
out of the kennel and into the witness box by a vet.

@George,
Nice story, but as you can clearly see, they've got the wrong dog, as you can see HERE. Wink

@George,
I dunno, but no doubt it would be something spoken in an outrageously terrible impersonation of a Freanncchh axxxcent.

Place your right paw on the -- what, exactly? The Bible doesn't mention dogs much, if at all (and no, the ark doesn't count).

Biscuit box? Chew toy? Rolled-up newspaper (fear of God angle)?

What would dogs swear on?
