Memphis, Tennessee - (Rioters): The National Rifle Association is recommending its highest award for King George, a resident of Raleigh, near Memphis after a 21 year old man was accidentally shot in the back today.
King George, a 150 pound Great Dane, was apparently pretty fed up with lack of attention from his owner, who has demanded a press blackout of his name while he recovers in hospital following the shooting.
The pedigree pooch accidentally knocked a loaded .22 caliber pistol off a table at his owner's house early this morning, which went off and hit the man in the back.
"A pity it wasn't his ass," a canine psychology expert commented today.
"These Great Danes are ultra smart. But if you ignore them they can be cunning devils and will find a way of getting the attention they deserve.
"King George may now be asked to train police dogs in a NRA program set up to utilise hidden canine strengths and abilities.
"Sure hope his owner comes round to the idea when he leaves hospital!"
