"Squirts", the Dog Next Door

A team of scientists announced today that after a months-long, $4-million study, they learned that what they thought was a new, undiscovered life form growing on a residential fence was actually a dog's nose protruding through a knothole.

"It turned out to be the nose of the Foxhound next door," said dejected researcher Dr. Augie Steevers.

"It looked really strange from our side of the fence. It was wet and black, and air went in and out of two pulsating holes. We really thought we were on to something new," explained a tearful Steevers.

A group of 16 scientists spent five months studying the object.

"What made it so compelling was that, unlike most unfamiliar organisms, sometimes it was there and other times it wasn't. It was very mysterious," said Steevers.

Crews today worked in the yard dismantling several small buildings in which scientists conducted their research.
