Pronunciation: best in sho yu

Sentence: When Margie ran around with her Poodle, Xaviera, in her customized stroller for poodles, everyone wondered who obeyed who? That dog had more outfits and toys than the most spoiled child and everyone knew that Margie waited upon Xaviera like a devoted slave. Everyone figured that she herself had gotten the BestinShowYou Trophy, because she did everything for that dog. Do you think that if Aliens landed here they would think that the Humans were not in charge, but just the dogs. But how does one explain the fact that if we are so smart, why are we running around picking up the Dogs' poop and lovingly carrying it home, like a treasure in a plastic bag...??? Who is actually in charge???

Etymology: Best In Show - Winners of the AKC's Annual Dog Show; Movie parody about said Industry by Christopher Guest et al: Show You - Teach you; prove to you;guide you on certain topics.

Pronunciation: pet own ya

Sentence: Petula's new poodle puppy was called Petunia. She was a purebred pooch and a pretentious poseur. Petula attended her every need and was worse than a Stage Mother when managing Petunia's daily life. However, Petula was suffering from a new malaise called petownia...where your every living moment is devoted to the feeding, comfort and care of an animal pet. When Petula's friend, Peter saw her pushing Petunia's perambulator, he paused and posed the probing question, "Why are you pushing her in a stroller?" When Petula's implausible retort came, Peter had one main thought. "Who would an alien assume was the leader on our planet? The pooch, or the person picking up her poo?" Unless he was from anywhere but Pluto...he could only assume it was the pets who were in charge!

Etymology: Pet (a domesticated animal kept for companionship or amusement) & Own (have ownership or possession of) & Ya (you) & Wordplay on Petunia (flower with numerous fluted petals; smells sweet and very hardy)
