Perhaps you have not defeated the avatar avenger and laid claim yours yet? It's around here somewhere for you to beat in a jingo reciting contest, get to it.

@Rabit

You keep using that emoticon with sunglasses, but emoticons don't have ears. How do the sunglasses stay on?

That depends on the individual. For example, Chris uses velcro, Jamie prefers rubber cement, and Robin has a habit of using Krazy glue.

 

...

 

Yeah, Robin's a weird one.

All of the dogs I have observed seem to know where they are going, I have seen none consulting a map.

Dog maps are intricate and constantly updated.  Far too sophisticared for humans to understand.

Besides we have social taboos against practicing public cartography on bushes, telephons poles and hydrants.
