Let loose the dogs of war


Back to the serious papers, the Times reports on custody battles over dogs . I would find it hard to believe but for a story I heard in the West Country the other die about parents being asked to choose between the dogs and the children - they chose the dogs and the children ended up in care. When a man's best friend is his dog, that dog has a problem.

I rather thought that it was 'Cry, "Havoc!" and let SLIP the dogs of war!"

(Juius Caesar Act III scene 1)

as in to slip a leash

rather more elegant than

"Who let the dogs out?" (Baha Men)
