Sentence: Ropert always returned from his dog-walking in an exhausted and ropable condition. Without fail, his pair of kelpies would race around him in opposite directions whenever they encountered another dog. He was tired of being lassioed, but it never occurred to him that passing the pet hotel was a bad idea.

Etymology: lassie (a fictitious kelpie character) + lasso (to throw a loop of rope around an animal's neck)
