A Minor Sign of the CJC Apocalypse?

This morning at the CJC had the added entertainment of a stray dog hanging out in the lobby along with the backlogged defendants waiting to go through the metal detectors.

The friendly brown dog actually cut in line a few people ahead of me, and happily made his way through the lobby. The Elite Wackenhutt S.W.A.T. and Security Team didn't seem all that bothered over the fact that Fido had shown up for an unexpected court appearance, and they certainly made no attempts to corral him.

No word on what the dog was charged with.

So, you're saying the dog got there about 9:30 or so? Give or take a half hour?

What makes you think he was a defendant? Other possibilities . . .

He could have been waiting for a court appointment.

He could be attending the trial of the man who shot his paw.

Maybe he's just a "fleaquent courthouse visitor."

With the remedial engineering work needed ta the CJC, maybe he's with the Turner Collie & Braden advance crew.

Could he be the famous bounty hunter sans TV makeup?

Aahhh, the possibilities . . .

That was no dog; that was a metaphor!

Really, since when is one dog even a minor sign of an apocalypse?

Now if it had been one locust or one frog then it might be the sign of things to come.

Possibly he/she was one of the alternates for a GJ in an attempt to select more variety to appease those desperate for appeasement...

The new bureau chief and head of DA training under Lykos. Watch out kids, he bites.

Perhaps he was there to report for jury duty!
