Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /bej-hog/

Sentence: Bandit had started out as a cute Border Collie puppy, but now he'd grown into a huge bedgehog.

Stewart decided to seek professional help, and started wondering how hard it was to contact that 'It's Me Or the Dog' lady. What was her name again?...
