Sentence: Dogless was a Muzzletoff. He had been born of a wealthy family and was educated in the finest boarding schools. Th only trouble he had was convincing his folks that he could be the best dogwalker on the Planet. They were horrified at a boy of his breeding doing a doggy round up and having asteer home contest every month. He had tough skin and it let him be carried away. Guys like Dogless, they deserved to be lonely and tied up in their work.

Etymology: Play on Mazel Tov (Good Fortune in Hebrew) & Muzzle (a leather or wire restraint that fits over an animal's snout (especially a dog's nose and jaws) and prevents it from eating or biting) & Toff (an elegantly dressed man (often with affected manners)
